THE WESTERN STAR, 26 March 1915
Obituary of ELIZABETH WOLF
MRS. ELIZABETH WOLF.

Mrs. Elizabeth Wolf died on Thursday of last week, March 18, 1915, at the home of her son, A. J. Wolf, in Shimer-tp., this county, and was buried in the Coldwater cemetery on Friday, after brief funeral services had been held at the home. Elder J. H. Bristor of the Christian church of this city being in charge.

About a week before her death, Mrs. Wolf was stricken with a severe attack of lagrippe, which was followed by a stroke of paralysis. She bore her suffering with remarkable patience, and seemed to be only
awaiting the summons of the wise and loving Father. At the age of 13, Mrs. Wolf united with the Friends' church, but later in life she became a member of the Christian church. She was a devoted follower of the
lowly Nazarene. Another faithful wife, mother and friend is gone!

Elizabeth Keagy was born in Bedford, Penn., on January 15, 1828. On March 9, 1848, she was married to Josiah Wolf, who died on December 6, 1903, at Bandon, Ore. To this union were born 9 children - four sons and five daughters, eight of whom survive her. One son died in infancy. Those surviving are: Anna Davison, Sterling, Va.; Abraham Wolf, Mulberry, Kans.; Belle Epperly, Kansas City, Mo.; A. J. Wolf, Comanche-co, Kans.; Lyman Wolf, Ore.; Augusta Stephenson, Brandon, Ore.; Carrie Sparling, Iantha, Mo.; Fannie Mills, Lamar, Mo. She had twenty nine grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. She had so lived that when the summons came "to join that innumerable caravan which moves to that mysterious realm where each shall take his chamber in the silent halls of Death," she went "not like a quarry slave, at night scourged to his dungeon, but sustained and soothed by an unfaltering trust, approaches his grave like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him and lies down to pleasant dreams."
-----
We wish to thank our neighbors and friends for their help and sympathy during the recent sickness and death of our dear mother, also for the beautiful floral offerings, especially those of the Fairview Aid. A. J. Wolf and wife, Mrs. J. R. Sparling and Mrs. A. L. Mills.
