[Died], on the eighteenth of Ninth Month, 1898, at their home near Whittier, Linn Co., Iowa, ANNA EMMONS, wife of Edwin C. Emmons and daughter of William and Hannah Shaw, in the thirty-third year of her age; a member of Springville Monthly Meeting of Friends. Her orderly and consistant life, the calmness and Christian patience with which she bore her suffering during the last hours of her life, when she bade her husband an affectionate farewell, saying, "I am going home," and her quiet and peaceful close, leave an assurance with her relatives and friends that she experienced the fulfilment of what the psalmist David spake of: "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."
