Mrs. Isaac Pugh
It is with sincere regret that we chronicle the demise of Mrs. Sarah Pugh, wife of Mr. Isaac Pugh who lives about four miles north of Toledo. She had been in poor health for some time, yet was able to attend to her household duties. On Friday afternoon of last week she felt so poorly that she went to bed, little thinking that the end had come. All was done that loving hands could do, but before morning dawned she was sleeping that dreamless sleep from which none ever awaken. Heart disease was the immediate cause of death. She was buried from the Rose Hill church and rest in the adjacent cemetery. A large number of relatives and many friends were present to pay the last tribune of respect and perform the last kind duties to one they had learned to love and respect. The funeral was conducted by her pastor, the Rev. Mr. Bunch, assisted by the Rose Hill choir. The floral offerings were beautiful and appropriate. Our earnest sympathies go out to the bereaved ones. May our heavenly Father comfort them in this, their great bereavement. The following is an obituary:
Miss Sarah Hockinsmith was born in Henricks Co., Indiana, June 10, 1840 and died at her home in Tama County, Iowa Feb 28, 1902, being 61 years, 8 months and 8 days old at the time of her death. She moved to the state of Missouri with her parents in 1850 and in 1860 she moved to Tama County, Iowa where she has since resided. In the year 1861 she was married to Mr. Marmaduke Betts. Of this union one child was born, Mrs. Nancy Pugh, who survives them. Mr. Betts was killed by the Indians in the year 1863. In the year 1873 she was married to Mr. Isaac Pugh her now bereaved husband. Four children blessed this union, all of whom survive her except little Johnnie who died when about two years old. She leaves a husband, four children, four sisters and one brother to mourn her departure. Mrs. Pugh was converted in early womanhook, and has been a faithful member of the M.E. church for many years, and her hopes for a happy future were not clouded at the last moment. She was a kind and affectionate wife, a loving, tender mother, a helpful and sympathetic neighbor, an earnest Christian. We will miss her from our little circle but our loss is her eternal gain.
