Mother dear, of this life's journey,
you have given us your best,
But now God has taken you to your
Hardships and toil has been your
pilgrimage on earth.
Heaven now has called you through
Christ's new birth.
Yes, we will miss your welcoming
Each time we visit the old home
We will miss that kindly "Come
When each visit we depart.
But, Mother, we never can forget
That you have given us your life
Services were held Tuesday after noon at the Lutheran church, with Rev. O. M. Langehough officiating. Burial was made in the Pleasant Hill cemetery.
