THE WESTERN STAR, 20 April 1917
Obituary of EVA SCHROCK
Death of Mrs. Eph Schrock.

At a few minutes before midnight on last Sunday evening, April 15, 1917, the spirit of Mrs. Eva Schrock, wife of Eph Schrock, passed into the Great Beyond. Death was the result of a gangrenous condition of the
body, and especially of the right leg. She had suffered an attack of pneumonia, which was followed by the disordered blood condition. On Thursday the right leg was amputated and for a time it was thought that
she had a good chance for recovery, but early Sunday morning her condition became worse, and from that time she gradually became weaker. She was conscious, however, until the last. At the time of her death she
was at the Moon hospital in this city.

Eva Deuel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Benj. Deuel, was born in Cerro Gordo county, Iowa, on April 24, 1868. In the year 1889 the family moved from Iowa to Montgomery co., Kans., settling on a farm between Coffeyville and Caney. It was there, on October 26, 1893, that the deceased was united in marriage with Eph Schrock. Two children, Guy, aged 23, and Bernice, aged 21, were born to this union. They and the husband and several other relatives were present at the time of death.

About 15 years ago Mr. and Mrs. Schrock settled on a claim 6 miles east of Coy, and about 28 miles southeast of this city. They have since then lived either on their farm or in this city.

Mrs. Schrock was a devoted wife and mother and a kind neighbor, always considerate of the happiness and needs of others. For many years she had served her Christ faithfully. Her membership was in the Christian church.

Funeral services were conducted from the Christian church in this city on Wednesday at 10 a.m., Rev. W. E. Babb, a former pastor here but now of Girard, Kans., conducted the services. Interment was in the Coldwater cemetery.
