Mrs. Lizzie Weber, a well known and highly respected lady, passed away at her home in this city shortly after noon, Friday, June 28, following an extended illness. At the time of her death she was aged 61 years, 5 months and 9 days.

March 21, 1922 she was bereft of her husband, and October 17 of the same year death again entered the home and claimed the oldest daughter, Emma, thus bringing deep sorrow into her life.

When still in her early teens, she united with the Church of the Brethren, of which she was a consistent and faithful member, always true to her convictions of right, and loyal to her church. She was a devoted wife and a real Christian mother, one of those kind that always found it a pleasure to serve in the home. She made friends readily and possessed the fine qualities that holds friends indefinitely.

Her health has been failing for some time, but she bore her suffering, which at times was intense, with that patience, which becomes the child of God, and was ready to answer the summons to enter the higher life.
