      Roth - Sister Lisetta Goldsmith Roth was born in Switzerland, Oct 27, 1854; died at her home in Morton, Ill, Sept 11, 1923; aged 68 y, 10 m, 14 d. 

      In 1882 she with her sister came to America and made her home in Gridley, Ill, later coming to Washington of the same state, where she was united in marriage with Daniel Roth. To this union two children were born: Miss Amelia, who remained at home with her mother and Samuel R, who also resides in this immediate community. Besides the above named children she leaves one sister, nine step-children, one grandchild and a host of relatives and friends to mourn her death. 

      Early in life she united with the Amish Mennonite Church and remained faithful to her profession till death. In life she always manifested a deep interest in spiritual things and during her final illness expressed an earnest desire to leave the world and be at rest. 

      Her husband preceded her in death by nearly one and a half years and after his departure she took consolation in her children and found comfort in the hope of salvation through her Savior, in Whom she had trusted during all her Christian life. 

      Funeral services were held at the home, Sept 14, by Bro S C. Yoder of Kalona, Ia, and at the Pleasant Grove Mennonite Church by Bros Sam Gerber and S C Yoder.
