    • Mrs. Joseph Burwell Dead
      On Friday afternoon the remains were brought to Clarinda from Gravity of Mrs. Joseph Burwell. She was buried in Clarinda cemetery, the services being conducted by Rev. Abram S. Woodard of the Methodist church. Mrs. Burwell and her family are well known around here, having resided near here until recently, the following obituary being taken from last week's Gravity Independent:
      Sarah Eby was born in Crawford county, Ohio, July 13, 1837, being the daughter of Peter and Rebecca Eby.
      On December 4, 1856, she was married to Joseph Burwell. They lived in Ohio until 1865, when they moved with their family to Iowa, living one year in Lyon county, after which they came to Page county. Here they lived for 46 years. In the fall of 1911, she with her husband, moved to Gravity where she passed away April 21, 1915, at 4:30 o'clock, being 77 years, six months and eight days old.
      She leaves besides her husband, nine children to mourn her loss. They are: A. W., E. M., and C. A. Burwell, and Mrs. A. J. Heninger and Mrs. C. O. Heninger, all of Gravity. W. L. and J. O. Burwell, and Mrs. Carrie Brokaw of Clarinda; Mrs. A. J. Walker of Athol, Kansas.
      Besides her unbroken family of children, she leaves 25. grand children, 21 great-grand children, two brothers and two sisters.
      For 25 years Mrs. Burwell has been almost an invalid, at times suffering intense pain, but never omplaining,
      always patient and cheerful. Her Christ, whom she had served since early womanhood, her home and her
      children were the really big things in life to her. In the absence of her pastor Mr. C. W. Protetor, of the
      Methodist church, Irving E. Wade, pastor of the Christian church, assisted by W. L. Dunlavy conducted the funeral service at two o'clock. The body being taken to Clarinda for burial.
      Athough not able to go out much among friends, whole hosts will feel a sense of loss at the going of this good woman. CLARINDA HERALD, Clarinda, Iowa, Apr 29, 1915
