    • Obit:
      NEUHAUSER. - On the 14th of May, in Livingston Co., Ill., of cancer of the breast, Barbara, wife of deacon Valentine Neuhauser, aged 66 years. On Sunday the 16th her remains were laid in the grave. Many friends from far and near were present to pay their last tribute of respect for the departed sister. Funeral services were held by Daniel Steiner, Andrew Ropp, Christian Roop and John P. Schmidt. About three years ago an operation was preformed upon Sister Neuhauser and since that time she had continual and severe pain; yet all her sufferings were borne in all patience and Christian fortitude. She often prayed her heavenly Father that if it were his will, to release her from these sufferings, yet she calmly resigned herself to his will. She gave good evidence that she had been with Christ. She lived in matrimony 47 years, during which time joy intermingled with sorrow, yet the Lord always opened a way for them. Their last place of abode in Europe was in Saxburg, France, where she was born. From that place they moved to America. The departed sister leaves a sorrowing husband, one son, 10 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren to mourn their loss, but they mourn not as those who have no hope. She was a faithful member of the Amish Mennonite Church.
