At Rest.
Mrs. Hulda (Colson) Anderson, wife of John A. Anderson, and daughter of Mr. G. Colson of this city, was born in Sweeten [sic], August 12th, 1870, and died in Oregon, Friday, February 19th, 1892 at 1:45 A.M. So passed peacefully away a life that was endeared to all who knew her. She was precocious, thoughtful as a girl beyond her years. Three years ago, she gave her life to Christ and became a consistent member of the Lutheran church, which relation she sustained until the time of her death. She was married to John A. Anderson April 4th, 1891, and was the mother of one child, a little girl, about two weeks old. Cut off in the midst of her years and clinging to life for the sake of her loved ones, she was nevertheless prepared for death. "At Rest," is a beautiful thought for such a one, She has passed beyond life's burdens and has gone to develop those buds of promise among the celestials, in the pure atmosphere of the redeemed, and the bright and unfading light of Christ's righteousness and love. The funeral took place at the Lutheran church Sunday afternoon at two p.m., where a large concourse of relatives and friends assembled to pay a last tribute of respect to the deceased one. Rev. L. Ford, of Mt. Morris, officiated. The sorrowing relatives have the sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement.
