From a newspaper obituary clipping for Sarah Alice Meese Libey, from the
estate sale of Dessa Mae (Sunday) Wolf 25 Nov 2000

  Sarah Alice Meese Libey, daughter of William and Michiann Meese, was born 
Dec. 15, 1861, at Arcola, Allen County, Indiana, and departed this life at
the home of her son Cluade at South Bend, Indiana, December 4, 1922, aged 60
years, 11 months and 19 days.  She was united in marriage January 16, 1884 to
Franklin Libey of Hudson, Indiana. To this union were born three children
Edna Tubbs of Hudson, Indiana, Claude Libey of South Bend, Indiana, Orie
Libey of LaGrange, Indiana.  Early in life she was converted and has been a
member of the United Brethren church for the past 24 years.  She was taken
ill on June 26 and was operated on for cancer, July 1st at the Sacred Heart
Hospital at Garrett, Indiana.  She was better for a time but the best of
medical attention and nursing proved to be of no avail and after intense
suffering she passed away.
  She is survived by the three children Edna, Claude and Orie, the husband 
and father having preceded her in death, November 2nd, 1900. She also leaves
seven grandchildren, three brothers, H.D. Meese of Beaver City, Okla. J.P.
Meese of Ft. Wayne, Indiana, S.A. Meese of Lansing, Michigan and a host of
other relatives and friends to mourn her loss.
T'is hard to break the tender cord.
 Where love has found the heart.
T'is hard so hard to speak the words.
 We must forever part.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,
 When the day of life is fled,
And in heaven with joy to greet thee
 Where no farewell tears are shed.
 The funeral was held at the U.B. church at Hudson, Dec. 7, and burial at
Circle Hill cemetery, Rev. Wertenberger officiating.
 We desire to thank the friends and neighbors for all their kindness during
the illness and death of our beloved mother, also the singers and Rev.
Wertenberger for his words of comfort.
       Edna Tubbs
