Mrs. Edward Weaver passed away Monday morning, September 28, 1908, at her home southwest of Polo, on the Worden farm near the Barclay School House. Mrs. Weaver was a young woman and her death is unusually sad, particularly as she leaves a little son, only a few days old.

Ida Urilla Wesner was born near Greencastle, Franklin county, Pennsylvania, December 9, 1872. She came to Illinois in 1882 with her parents and located near Polo and she had spent the remainder of her life in this vicinity. December 20, 1900, she was united in marriage to Edward O. Weaver, to whom she proved a kind and loving companion. She leaves to mourn her early death besides her sorrowing husband and infant son, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Wesner of Polo, one sister, Miss Dessie Wesner, whop resides at home and two brothers, John Wesner of Brookville and Harvey Wesner of Los Angeles, California.

Mrs. Weaver was a woman of sweet disposition. She loved her home and her death leaves a vacancy there that will always be felt. To her parents she was ever all a daughter should be and to her husband she was a true helpmeet. It is sad indeed that one so badly needed here should be taken from her loved ones. He age at the time of her death was 35 years 9 months and 19 days.

Funeral services will be held today (Wednesday) at the United Evangelical Church in Polo, Rev. E. Y. Knapp conducting the services. The cortege will leave the home at eleven o’clock and will arrive at the church about one o’clock. The remains will be laid to rest in Fairmount Cemetery.
