Sarah A. (Petty) Case 1857-1902

Died at her home near Hooker, October 4th 1902, Mrs. Sarah A. Case, wife of Robert M. Case.

Mrs. Case was born on Matthews Prairie, September 18th, 1857, and was married to Robert M. case October 16th, 1881. She was the mother of eight children, six of whom survive her, three boys and three girls. She was a loving wife and an affectionate mother and the chair she has left vacant can never be filled. She was a devoted christian, always cheerfully assisting in the advancement of the cause of christianity.

Her soul has passed into Heaven but she will long be remembered by friends as one whose heart was filled with love and hospitality towards her fellow creatures. Although for three long years she struggled with that "King of disease", consumption, still she bore it patiently and when the death Angel came she was not afraid to meet her God.
