Mrs. Ruth Hoff Lamb


Former Mason Woman Dies in Industry, Illinois.

Ruth Ann Hoff Lamb was born in Warren county, O., March 17, 1831. Died at her home in Industry, Ill., February 24, 1904, aged 72 years, 11 months and 7 days, was married to Abraham Lamb, Feb., 11, 1849. To this union was born 11 children, five having preceded her to the spirit world. Came to Illinois with her husband in the fall of 1854.

She made a profession of religion when 18 years of age and united with the Christian church, and has lived a consistent christian life every since. The high and almost reverential esteem in which she has ever been held is a sufficient testimonial of her faithfulness to God and her loyalty to the church of her choice. She was ever a tender, loving companion and a devoted mother. Hers was such a sweet gentle and Christlike character as one seldom meets. Her kind words, loving smile, and helpful hands were ever ready for neighbor or friend, who needed the comfort and help she might render. Her last days were full of peace and christian tranquility, and a full hope of eternal life, telling her family that all was well with her soul. Finally she fell asleep in Jesus, as calmly and peacefully as a child in its mothers arms. Thus a useful life is ended, but "being dead, yet speaketh." She passed into the unseen with a calm and unfaltering trust in Christ as her deliverer, leaving her testimony to the living that no cloud hovered over her spiritual horizon to dim her vision of that Savior who had been her stay and support during life, in health and sickness. May we all profit by her christian example and strive to meet her in the "sweet bye and bye." She
"Sleeps in Jesus, blessed sleep, from which none ever wake to weep."

May the bereaved and consolation in the promises of the Savior. As a church we sustain a loss but it is her infinite gain.

A husband, six children - Mrs. Flora Johnson, Kansas City; Mrs. Ellen Park, Peculiar, Mo.; Mrs. Eva Bridges and Frank, Industry; William, Peculiar, Mo. and Reuben, Coleman, Mo, one brother, four sisters, 18 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, and a host of friends and relatives to mourn her departure.

Funeral services were held at the Christian church Friday morning at ten o'clock, conducted by Rev. Gade. Interment in the Industry cemetery.

Note: The obituary was basically a reprint of one published earlier in IL. The paragraph listing Ruth Lamb’s survivors was copied from the original obituary as published in IL because the Warren Co. obituary was not entirely correct and was incomplete. The surviving children in birth sequence were: Flora Johnson, Ellen Park, Eva Bridges, William Lamb, Frank Lamb, and Reuben Lamb.

Death of a Former Warren Countian

The many friends and relatives of Mrs. Ruth A. Lamb were pained to hear of her death which occurred on the twenty fourth of February at her home in Industry, Ill., after an illness of a few weeks, only lacking a few days of being seventy-three years old. She was born and raised in Warren county near Mason and had many friends and relatives in that community. Two years ago last fall she visited the friends of her youth and seems to enjoy it so much though she and her friends felt it would be her last visit here and it was hard to say good-bye when parting time came. Thus, once more we are reminded that we are being gathered one by one to our eternal home where partings are unknown.
