Mrs. Samuel Rogers Passed Away On Wednesday Night

Mrs. Samuel Rogers died at her home west of Astoria, Wednesday of last week following a stroke of paralysis which she suffered a few days previous.

Carrie Almeda Belle was born in Astoria township June 29, 1865 and at the time of her death was aged 60 years, 9 months and 15 days. On March 5, 1882 she was united in marriage to Samuel Rogers of Brownsville, Pa. To this union two daughters were born, Mrs. Nellie Gibbons of Oak Dale, Ill., and Mrs. Faye Walters of Beardstown.

Mrs. Rogers was a kind friend and neighbor, always ready to give a helping hand to those in need and will be greatly missed, not only in the home, but in the community in which she had spent her entire life. She had been in failing health for several years, but was able to be about her work until April 8, when she was stricken with a stroke of paralysis from which she never regained consciousness. All was done that loving hands and medical attention could do, but to no avail. She peacefully passed away at 9:40 Wednesday night, April 14th.

Besides her husband and two daughters, she leaves to mourn her departure, four grandchildren, Roger and Robert Gibbons, Darlene and Enid Walters.

Funeral services were held at the U. B. Church, Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m., conducted by Rev. W. R. Seitzinger. Interment in Astoria cemetery.
