Louisa Jane Idle, daughter of Jacob and Catherine Kizer, was born in Harrison township, Champaign county, Ohio February 24, 1846, and died March 29, 1918, aged 72 years, 1 month and 5 days.
She was united in marriage to Mr. Wesley Idle October 21, 1879. She was a loving and affectionate mother, and a faithful friend, but she was more, she was a christian. Years ago she converted and united with the Neer's Chapel church, retaining her membership to the last. As a bud and blossom and leaf point to flower and fruit, so did her step lead up to the fruition of hope and faith and grace, where saints immortal reign. And while her grief stricken daughter, brother, sister and friends sorrow at her passing, they can look through tears and rejoice. While we sing funeral hymns with pathetic sadness, she sings the songs of triumph.While earthly friends are waiting their going, she awaits their home coming. Dear mother, sister, friend, farewell. We will miss thee but we hope in God's sweet sometime to meet Thee where death's chilly breath shall be feared and felt no more; where the flowers never fade and farewells are never heard. That will be heaven, that will be home. Mrs. Idle leaves to mourn her departure a daughter, one brother, and one sister, besides a host of relatives and friends. The funeral services were attended by a large number of associates and acquaintances and relatives. Services held in the home Sabbath afternoon at 3. Rev. J. C. Paul and T. J. Gregg brought messages of comfort to the living. Interment in family plot in Concord cemetery.

"Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord."
