A Beautiful Life Comes to a Close

In The Passing of Mrs. Martha Ellinghausen Leffler, a Life-Long Resident of Dearborn County
Martha Ellinghausen Leffler was born in Dearborn County October 31, 1862. She was the youngest daughter of Henry and Sophia Schover Ellinghausen. She was baptized in infancy and confirmed in t. John's Lutheran church April 9, 1876, of which church she has since been a member.
October 31, 1883, she was united in marriage with August Leffler. Ten children were born to this union, two sons having preceded her to the great beyond.
Surviving are her husband, two sons, Edward, who resides at home, Elmer, of near Manchester; six daughters, Mrs. Earl Hanson of Lawrenceburg, Mrs. Sherman Martin of Moores Hill, Mrs. Ivan Bennett at home, Mrs. Ernest McClanahan of near Wright's Corner, Mrs. John Mason of Kyle, Mrs. George Rosenbaum, of neat Aurora; 12 grandchildren; one brother, Henry Ellinghausen of Kyle; one sister, Mrs. Margaret Johnston of near Aurora, and other relatives and friends.
After two weeks of intense suffering she passed away September 8, 1932, at the age of 69 years, 10 months and 7 days. She bore her suffering with Christian patience and fortitude.
A kind and devoted mother has been called from our midst. Mrs. August Leffler was especially devoted to her family and home.
Faithful and unselfish she has served her day and generation and if one is permitted to judge, has gone to that reward promised to those who are "Faithful Unto Death."

She is not dead; oh, no,not dead, but sleeping;
The weary frame now rests beyond all weeping;
The spirit, like a prisoned bird set free,
On joyful wing, mounts up, exultingly.
Her early life was beautiful and rare;
But she has gained the life eternal where
At his dear feet her troubles all laid down,
She has exchanged her armor for a crown.
