Elizabeth Blaker Obituary

Mrs. Elizabeth Blaker, wife of C. C. Blaker, died at her home on Shannon Run, Perry Township, November 7, 1900. She was a member of the Shannon Run M. E. Church and lived a true christian life. She was the mother of eleven children, of whom five boys and four girls are still living, two boys having preceded her to the grave. She was a true and devoted wife, a faithful, loving mother, a true friend to the poor and afflicted. She will be missed not only by her afflicted husband and bereaved children, but by all who knew her and had shared her kindness. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Lightner at which a large congregation of sorrowing friends were present. She was laid to rest in the Claughton Chapel cemetery. The bereaved ones need only emulate her example and they will soon form an unbroken family in that home where partings never come.

Waynesburg Republican, November 15, 1900 (Greene County, PA)
