    The deceased was born in Salem township Steuben county, Indiana, where she has lived the greater part of her life. In the funeral service, which was held at the home, /rev. Humfreys, of Angola, brought the message from our Saviour's parting words to His disciples, St. John 14:4 teaching the beautiful lesson, that as Jesus gave His life in service and self-sacrifice, so Dora ministered, not only in the home to which she was so devoted, to husband and to children, whom she loved so tenderly but also to neighbors, who so often turned to her, were never disappointed. No matter what burdens and sorrows life was bringing to her, she met them with a cheery smile, and in response to their appeal for sympathy or assistance, always gave her very best. And this dear Saviour whow gave his life in ministry, knoweth our hearts, and our every day lives of truth, purity and faithfulness, that we can trust Him in life or death , and although with breaking hearts and falling tears, we look up into the face of our Heavenly Father and commit all to His care, knowing His love for us, and that He never makes a mistake. At the close of the service, loving hearts followed her to the cemetery near her girlhood home, where she was tenderly laid to rest.
    Thus cometh life's sunset to Dora May Tritch, devoted wife, loving mother, and faithful friend.
