Obituaries - Delina BAUMGARDNER

Died 26 June 1914.

Mrs. Delina Baumgardner, of Scotland Township, died last night at 11:30 of rheumatism and complications with which she has been ill for thirty-one years and for the past five years has been a helpless invalid. She died on her 57th birthday. Funeral services will be held tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock in the Ebenezer Presbyterian church. Rev. Wilson assisted by Rev. Prentis will conduct the services. Interment will be made in the Camp Creek cemetery.

 Delina Baldock, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Baldock, was born June 26, 1857. She came to Illinois in 1864, and October 1, 1874, she was united in marriage with John Baumgardner, who survives. For a number of years they lived on a farm near Colchester, but for the past twenty-five years or more they have lived in Scotland Township.

About eighteen years ago the deceased was united with the Presbyterian church and since has lived a life consistent with her profession of faith. During the trying illness which she has suffered so long she bore her affliction with fortitude and in a manner which emphacised her faith. She has lived a life devoted to her family and her example will long remain as an elevating influence among those to whom her memory is dear.

Besides her husband she is survived by the following children: John W. of Scotland Township; Patsy, at home; Mrs. Jacob Bartley of Macomb; George David and Sophia both at home, and one brother, John Baldock, of west of this city, two sisters, Mrs. Polly Ann Rexroat of Macomb, and Mrs. George Miller of Ipava.
