The entire community was shocked and saddened by the unexpected death of Mrs. Ernest Strohman last Friday morning at 2 a.m. at her home near Webster. Though she had been ailing for several days there was no thought of her illness proving fatal. Her mother, Mrs. Wyant of Sigourney was with her. Heart failure was the immediate cause of her death.
The funeral, conducted by Rev. Lower of Webster, occurred Sunday at the M. E. Church with interment at the White Pigeon Cemetery.
All her sisters and brothers were present except Miss Elizabeth Wyant who is in California. Following is an obituary: Mollie A. Wyant Strohman was born August 28, 1861, at White Pigeon, Keokuk County, Iowa, and departed this life Oct. 23, 1908, aged 47 years, 1 month and 26 days. While yet in her teens she made public confession of faith and united with the Methodist Protestant Church near her childhood home. January 25, 1888, she was joined in holy wedlock to Ernest Strohman with whom she lived till death claimed her. This union was blessed with four children - two sons and two daughters - three of whom are living, one dying in infancy. During the meetings at Keswick last summer Mrs. Strohman went forward, thus publicly renewing her vows to lead a Christian life. She leaves to mourn her sudden departure an aged mother, five sisters and three brothers, the companion of her life, one daughter and two sons, besides a host of friends and neighbors.
"Rest, mother rest, thy earthly toiling are o'er, And we hope to meet and greet thee on that fair celestial shore. There thou wilt never more leave us, Though here we have been bereft sore. The disease that afflicts this whole nation, Cannot leave its footprints on Heaven's fair shore."
