Maude Elverta Gregg
Daughter of Brazlia and Charlotte Woodworth, was
born Dec. 14, 1878, at
Pleasant Lake, Indiana, and died Dec. 10, 1916, at her home in Angola, Ind.,
aged 38 years lacking four days. She was a resident of Pleasant Lake until
her marriage to William Gregg, at Auburn, Ind., on March 3, 1900. Since that
time the greater part of her life has been spent in Angola and vicinity. To
this union two children were born, one child dying in infancy, the other,
Savonna (Lavornia), now in her girlhood, remains to mourn the early departure
of her mother. The other surviving members of Mrs. Gregg’s immediate family
are the mother, Mrs. Charlotte Woodworth, of Angola; four sisters, Mrs. Cora
Myers and Mrs. Cecil Anderson of Goshen; Mrs. Belle Ueber, of Avilla, and
Mrs. Elroy Wilkinson, of Angola; two brothers, Frank Woodworth of Goshen,
Ind., and William Woodworth, of Angola.
Mrs. Gregg had been in poor health for about eighteen months, and since
last September had experienced a rapid decline in strength. As the end drew near,
she was conscious of her condition and bravely faced the severing of
earth's ties and beginning of the new life, in that land where there is no
sorrow, and no occasion of tears. Mrs. Gregg was a member of the First
Christian church of this city. For many months her health had prevented her
regular attendance upon the services of the church, but she was not forgetful
of the Lord's work, nor did her interest slacken in the progress of that
kingdom into which she has entered in all its completeness.
Though her years were not many, their burden was uncommonly heavy, and
slipping from the folds of time she has entered into the rest which is rest
indeed and the peace which passeth all understanding.
Funeral services were held at the home, Tuesday, Dec. 12, conducted by
Elder Paul Preston.
