For sever years past she has spent most of the time at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Stange, who have cared for her kindly during her declining years. She was a woman who had a conscientious regard for rights of others and never knowingly wronged anyone, living up to her ideals of life as she saw them, faithfully.
