V , :.-f-... THE ENTERPRISE, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER, 18 8 Mrs. Ellaa Kent Warner. Died, about four 'olock In ths afternoon, Fri day. December 13th. 1889. in the ninetrelsrhth year ol her age, Mrs. Kltia Ken t Warner, at her residence on South Main St. Wellington, Ohio. Rer. A. B. Buell. Ass't Pastor ol the Euclid Avenue Baptist Church, conducted the funeral aervlces thls-Monday-afternoon, at the resi dence ol her son. Hon. 8. S. Warner, to the en tire acceptance ol the family and friends. Grandma Warner, as she has been familiarly called by relatives and friends for nearly halt a century, was born in Suffleld.Conn., July 27th, 1TM, orabout three years after the adop tion ol the Constitution of ths United States. She was the eldest daughter of Benajah Kent, an enterprising business man of that place. For many years her father was engaged suc cessfully In the export trade.andowned many thousand aores of land in Ohio during the early part of the eentury. At bis decease there fell to Ellaa. as her portion ol her lather's estate, thousands ol acres ol this un occupied but lertlle land, worth then some thing less than one dollar per aore. Grandma Warner had the misfortune to lose her mother when she was a small child. Her father aeon alter married again, and lrom the second mar riage wai bora a targe family. Her stepmother died soon after the birth ol her last ehlld, and Kliia was the main stay in the family for many years. Thna, early In llfe.she had to aiscnarge serious duties and meet grave responsibilities. She had, however, enjoyed the privileges of a food common-school education, and was, by her disposition, acquirements, and especially b her strong common sense ana maraea res- 'olution ol character, eminently fitted to take charge of her father's household, and to nil the place ol mother to her young brothers and sisters. The consecration and devotion ol several years ol her young womanhood to the care ol her father's family were complete, and were afemembered with appreciation and grat itude by her brothers and sisters throughout their lives. February M, 1816, Kllia Kent was married to Chaunoey Warner, with whom she lived lor over sixty-two years, or nntll his death, wbtoh occurred May SI, 1882. Seven children were born to them In the following order: Elizabeth Cordelia, Candaoe Catharine, Orri Cecelia, Rachel Camilla, Sidney Sardus, Emma Corin tba. Albert Horace. Elizabeth has always lived with her mother, has for many years been an Invalid, and still survives her. Can dace married John Richard Daugherty. of fipeneer, Medina Co, Ohio, and died when thirty-three years ol age, leaving no children. Orra married Joseph Uannett, and died at the age of twenty-six. leaving one child. Rachel Camilla married Lyman B. Pratt, now ol We. Ilngton, and died In 1877. tearing one child. The history and family of her surviving son. Hon. Sidney 8. Warner, are too well known to need special mention. Her sixth child. Emma. ' became the second wife of Joseph Gannett, of this village, and Is still living. Albert Horace, the seventh and last child, died In Infancy. . ' When twenty-three years ol age Mrs. War ' Tier united with the BaptlstChurcn of SuStetd, Conn. In IKS. soon after moving to Mantua, Obla, she by letter, and her four daughters by profession ol faith, joined the Baptist Charon t Aurora, there being no Cnarcb at Mantua; and In 1839, soon after moving to Loral a coun ty, she and her four daughters joined the Bap tist Church of Huntington. A few years after ward, to her great Joy, her husband, Chauneey Warner, by profession of faith connected him self with the same Church, of which they both eontinu"d sealous, consistent, devoted mem bers the remainder of their lives. In W61. Mr. Chauneey Warner, having be come an Invalid, gave the largest portion ot his property to his son, Sidneys. Warner, who utered Into a contract to support his lather and mother) a contract that this devoted son can feel, as he lays his dear old mother away In the grave, be has kept most generously and sacredly. For thirty years his father was an Invalid, requiring constant attention and care, which was cheerfully given him, not only by bis son, but by Mrs. 8. 8. Warner aud their children. This occasion should not pass with- out mention of the devotion of Miss Orris L, tVaraer to ber aged grandparents, the last years of whose lives were greatly cheered and gladdened by ber constant and loving atten tlons and ministrations. Mention should also be made of Harry Caldwell, the faithful nurse and friend, who for nearly fifteen yean has devoted himself to the service and care of Grandma Warner and family. They have tor many years enjoyed, not only every comfort ot life, but from children and grandchildren tbey have received the constant and respect ful consideration and affectionate sympathy that are so greatly needed by old people. Their Uvea by these means were not only made peaceful and happy In the fullest measure, but were doubtless prolonged many years. Grandma Warner's Ufa was In many respects hard and severe one. The ears of ber father's family In ber young days waa a severe tax upon her. For nearly thirty years ber hus band was an Invalid. and tor many years, after she bad become very aged herself, she had the constant ears of an Invalid daughter, for whose eomfort and happiness she was solicit ous to the last hour ot her life. Mrs. Warner was in many respects a woman ot remarkable character. She belonged most decidedly to ths old school, and a grand school It was too. Hone would question her Puritan descent. Ber features, conversation and character were suggestive ot Plymouth Rock. She was plain, strong, conscientious, energetic, christian woman. In dress and speech, In her Ideas of life and Its duties she was old fash ioned, but It was the "old fashion" of ths highest type, such as has made the lives and achievement ot our rugged New England an cestors Illustrious. Mrs. Warner was not only a Baptist, but she always wanted It understood that she be longed to the "regular" Baptist church. There was no sham about her religloni It was practical, and, at the aams time, somewhat full ot theology. She believed la ths Bible, specially la the Hew Testament) she be lieved Is Christ as s Bavlort and abe be lieved la tbs Baptist church, ths regu lar Baptist church, as tbs only organi zation that la all Its doctrines wis really and thoroughly soaod and consistent from scriptural standpoint. To ths very last she was a great reader ot the Bible. She read ths Scriptures understand! nil)-, and was ready at all proper times and on all proper occasions ' ts giro good, solid bible reasons for the faith that was In ber, and la defense of ths tenets of ber own church. After ths death of ber husband shs kept up family worship, and always asked the blessing at her table. The 14th chapter of John was always a favorite with ber, and she often quoted from It. Her faith la Christ, ber unquestioned reliance oa his saving promises were sublime) but she believed in works as well as In faith, and re '. ligton entered Into her daily life and thoughts and arsvaded her conversation. She bad a remarkable memory, and often Quoted pas sages of Bcripture, also passages from hymns and not antrequently from poetry aot to be found la any of ear modem collections. "Just as I am without one plea" was one of her favorites, ant these words were quoted by her only a short time before she died. A patri otic song eommeaoing "Farewetl, dear Connecticut, Thou land of my blrthi I love thy green pastures, CnrlvaUed ea earth." A. oftea quoted by her duriag the last years f uer life, showing, as is often the cm la eld age, a fond turning ot memory and affections to the scenes of oulldhood. , . Mrs. Warner was always fond of work, and her whole life was devoted to her family and to the Baptist church. She believed In the old fashioned way In religion, In Industry, In economy. In devotion to duty. She was a wise, strong but affeotlonate wife and mother, a devout Christian, and one who believed that "There is no better armor against the darts ot death than to be busied In God's service." She had no fear ot death, and thought that "It matters not at what hour of the day the righteous tall asleep." It may be appropriate to quote here the following from the obituary notice ot Grandpa Warner: "Father Perry, who la In bis ninety-third year, being only two months and eight days younger than Mr. Warner, attended his fune ral and made some very appropriate and touch ing remarks, in which he paid a warm tribute to the character ot his aged friend, and spoke ot the "many good talks I have bad In this house with this old man." It was an Im pressive scene, one that moved every eye to tears, and filled every heart with sympathy. Who will live to see again a man ninety-two years old stand by the open coffin of a friend of the same age, and hear him speak aucb fitting words ot praise and appreciation? "Mr. Chauneey Warner was of a decided natural ability, of fine sensibilities, of a gener ous and affectionate disposition, and of sterling integrity. As a husband, as a father, as a Mend, as a citizen his lite and character were In keeping with his professions as a Christian. As we follow this patriarch, who lived to be nearly one hundred years old to bis grave, let us remember that) "Death Is as near to the young as to the old. Here is all the difference, death stands behind the young man's back, and before the old man's face." Grandma Warner retained full possession of her mental faculties to the last day ot ber life. When nearly ninety years of age she wrote in a good, old fashioned, plain band, in an autograph album belonging to a favorite grandchild, the following acrostlo of ber own composition: "Albert, name and grandson very dear to me, Let wisdom guide, and all temptation Bee; Be wise and trust the word of truth. Ever will it guide each trusting youth. Remember the Savior died for you and me; Then believe, and with him forever be." Forever wltb the Lord, Eliza Warner. Last summer when nearly ninety-seven years of age, she wrote to one of ber nephews, of whom she was justly proud, a letter that was well expressed and well written. A photo graph was taken of Grandma Warner on her ninety-seventh birthday. In It Is to be seen an expression ot peace and repose that seems prophetic of approaching death. It Is a wonderful likeness ota strong, peaceful, aged, christian woman. , And new Grandma Warner, after acting well her part for nearly a century, will be carried with loving hands and laid beside dear old Grandpa Warner, with whom she lived In love and affection for sixty-two years. Death had no terror tor her, and ber family and friends can bear her remains to their last resting place with tears of kindness rather than of regret. She was ripe for the grave, yet, "Who can look without emotion upon the sunset of lite, when the dark of evening begins to gather, and the watery eye and the shadows of twilight grow broader and deeper upon the understanding?" When the last fond parting Is over, let ns remember that "Unbroken quiet hovers arouod the grave; It Is a port where the storms ot life never beat; and where forma that have been tossed on life's chaflDg waves lie quiet for evermore.
