(Sunday)Wolf's estate sale 25 Nov 2000 -
"Emma Hughes, daughter of John and Martha Hughes, was born
Center, Steuben County, Indiana, on September 29, 1874, and departed this
26th, 1937, aged 62 years, 9 months and 27 days.
Her early life was spent in the community of her birth,
and in her early
twenties she was united in marriage to Frank Wolf and spent many years on
farm near Mt. Zion. In later years the family moved to Ashley, Indiana, where
she continuerd to reside until the tragedy of July 24, 1937, which hastened
her going from this earthly pilgrimage.
She is survived by her husband, five sons; Hazel of Pleasant
Waldo and Wayne of Fort Wayne, Indiana, Estol of Detroit, Michigan, and Leo
Mt. Zion. Two step-sons, who shared her motherly love and devotion,
Earl of Pleasant Lake, Indiana. Six brothers, Frank, Burl, Earl, Lester,
Sumner and Porter, all of Steuben County, Indiana.
Eighteen grandchildren, 8
step-grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren, with many other relatives and
friends who shall miss her love, kindness and devotion. Four brothers
three sisters have proceeded her in death.
She was an active member of the Eastern Star Lodge at Ashley,
Attendance at rligious services were at Ashley Christian church and Mt. Zion
United Brethren church.
Truly the shadows of this world have been lengthened, for
a mother, wife and
friend had gone from us, leaving a place that no other can fill. That
and love with which she was cherished by her loved ones, now is the book
yesterday, but memory's page will always light the pathway for tomorrow.
Funeral services were conducted from the Mt. Zion United Brethren
Wednesday afternoon, July 28, 1937, with the Rev. Cecil R. Smith the
officiating clergyman, and interment was in the cemetery at Mt. Zion.
We wish in this way to express our appreciation for the kind
sympathy, the beautiful floral offerings and the many acts of kindness which
were shown at the time of loss of our beloved wife and mother.
Wolf and Sons"
