The following obituary was pinned in the bible on the page with the deaths.

Catherine Francis Mackline was born near Lancaster, Fairfield Co, Ohio April 15, 1841. Departed this life April 18, 1911, aged 70 years and 3 days. She was united in marriage to Jospeh Foust March 9, 1876. To this union one child was born, Mrs. Wheat Bratton. She was of a family of 12 children and of these are still living to mourn her loss, two brothers and three sisters who live in and near Lancaster, Ohio. Besides she is survived by her husband, daughter and two granddaughters, besides other relatives and numerous friends. Sister Foust was converted when quite young and became a member of the United Brethern Church and die din the triumphs of the faithful. She has been a sufferer for the last two years, but the last four months there has been a gradual decline until death. Thru it all she was patient and without murmuring awaited the end. Naturally of a cheerful disposition she had many friends who enjoyed her hospitality and friendship. But our loss will be her eternal gain and with sad hearts we must say today, "Father, they will be done."
