She leaves surviving her besides her husband, two daughters, Sue of this place, and Lue of Chicago, one son John and one brother, George Stover.

A precious one from us is gone,
A voice we love is still,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
To her rest they gently laid her
In the arms of him who gave,
She will sleep but not forever
In the cold and silent grave.
