    MRS. SARAH MANROW LIVED TO AGE OF 95  One of Oldest Residents in DeKalb County Dies at Home of Granddaughter, Mrs. Peter Sebert of Near Sedan

    One of DeKalb county's oldest residents, Mrs. Sarah Adeline Manrow, 95, a resident for many years of Corunna, died at 9 p.m. Sunday in the home of her granddaughter, Mrs. Peter Sebert of near Sedan.

    Mrs. Manrow, widow of the late Lewis Manrow, lived her entire life in DeKalb county with the exception of a few years when the couple operated a farm in Michigan.

    The body was removed to the Dilgard & Cline funeral home in Auburn for burial preparations and will remain for final rites at 2 p.m. Wednesday.  The Rev. Joseph Ferguson of east of Auburn will officiate at the services with burial in the Corunna cemetery.

    The death of the elderly widow was attributed to old age and complications.  She was confined to a wheelchair since last June until Jan. 21 when she became bedfast.  She had lived in the home of her granddaughter since last December.  Previously, she had resided in the home of another granddaughter, Mrs. John Bowers of Corunna.

    A native of near Moore, she was born July 7, 1854.  Her husband died Jan. 24, 1929.  He was a retired farmer and the couple resided in Corunna at the time of his death.

    Surviving besides the two granddaughters, are two sons, Clarence Manrow of Corunna and Lester Manrow of Rt. 2 Waterloo; six other grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren and eight great-great-grandchildren.  One son, Lawrence, preceded her in death.
