Miss Emma Weber Aged 23 Years Died Suddenly

Emma Margaretta Weber, daughter of Thomas and Lizzie Weber, was born September 19, 1899 and departed out of this life October 17, 1922, aged 22 years and 28 days.

Those of the immediate family to mourn her departure are, a mother, two sisters and two brothers, namely, C. I. Weber of Mondovi, Wis., Earl, Vida and Ada at home and many other relatives and a host of friends.

Her father preceded her to that beautiful city beyond only a few months ago, and there waiting to clasp in his arms his darling daughter as she enters in through the Pearly gates into the city.

Emma gave her young life to Jesus at the age of sixteen years. She united with the Church of the Brethren and lived a faithful Christian until the end of her short life, which came with such a shock to her many friends and loved ones. Emma was among the most beloved ladies of the community. Faithful in Sunday School and all services of her Master.

Her sudden death is most deeply regretted by all who knew her, young and old, for her pleasant and cheerful disposition.

In her failing health, which she has been struggling with for the last year, she bore it patiently. After administering all that loving hands could do in her affliction, the death angel called. Willingly she passed into that peaceful sleep that knows no waking to the scenes of this world.

"A loving heart from us have gone
The voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled."

Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock at the Woodland church, conducted by Rev. S. S. Neher of Manchester, Ind., assisted by the pastor, Rev. A. L. Sellers. Interment in the cemetery near by.
