      She was converted in early life and lived a consistant christan life and was ready and waiting for the messenger. She was brought up in the Friends church, but later lived where there were no friends, so she united with the Baptist, but later went back to the Friends, of which church she was a member at the time of her death.
      The funeral services were held at the M. E. church Thursday at 12 o'clock, conducted by E. E. Gunckel, pastor of the M. E. church of Ellsworth. A large congregation was at the church.
