Louisa Boody

Died - At the residence of her son-in-law, John Schield, on Jan. 19, 1884, Mrs. Louisa Boody, wife of the late George Boody, aged 85 years and seven months.

Mrs. Boody emigrated with her family from Germany in 1847 to Freeport, Ill., where they remained on a small farm for six years, and from there they came to Benton County in 1855, and settled near Belle Paine, where she remained until her death. About fifteen years ago her husband died, which was a severe affliction to the old mother, yet she bore it with christian resignation and fortitude. Thirty-four years ago, she became the subject of saving grave and united with the Evangelical Association, and was a faithful and consistent member until her death. She was the mother of six children, and four them still survive her. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. E. F. Mell, assisted by Rev. Henry Letzing. A large number of friends and neighbors were in attendance, thus showing their respect and affection for the departed.
