Colesburg, Iowa, March 20th, 1TO. She
was married at Clarion, Iowa, in 18SKi,
to Mr. J. W. Piatt and entered upon
the discharge of the duties of the home,
with loving devotion, all the more in
tense, when God crowned her young
lite with motherhood. Besides the hus
hand and two little children, one sister,
Mrs. Nellie Reed, of Clear Lake, Iowa,
the only remaining member of her
family, survives her. She gave clear
evidence of her acceptance with God,
and during her short life has greatly en
deared herself to a large circle of
friends and neighbors.
