LEESEBURG — Allow me to write a line to the memory of a woman who was never known to say ill of any one, or allow anyone to speak disrespectfully of the absent without a protest. Such a character deserves more than a passing obituary. Such a life is a benediction and an inspiration to thousands and its memory whould ever be held sacred. Miss Sarah Horner was born in York Co., Pa., January 1839, came with her parents to Summum, Ill., in 1855, and was married to the late Henry Danner, by the late Rev. J. Stoneberger, in 1860. To them was born and raised to maturity, John, of McDonough Co., Ella, J. L., Charles, Edward, Leota, and Mrs. Sadie Falkenstine, all of Astoria and vicinity, and Haunce, of Ord., Nebraska. All survive her and with their families were present at the funeral to mourn her departure. She also leaves three sisters, Mrs. J. W. Swartzbach, of Bushnell, Ill., Mrs. Ed. D. Brinton, of El Dorado Hall, and Mrs. Sam’l Parr, of Astoria, and two brothers, D. W., of Astoria, and William, of Friend, Neb. and a host of other relatives and friends to follow. Funeral services were conducted at the Woodland church by Rev. Baker in the presence of many bereaved and interment at the Fitz cemetery.
