"Obituary

Mary J., Wife of Peter Cortner of this city, passed away Saturday, June 23rd, at 7:30 P.m., aged sixty years and nineteen days. She had been ill for a long while.

The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock.  Interment was at Maple Ridge Cemetery.  a large number of persons were present to pay respects to the memory of a departed friend.

Mrs. Cortner's maiden name was Huckleberry.  She was born at Charleston, Ind., June 4, 1834.  She was the mother of several children now grown.

From childhood she had been a member of the Methodist church, a firm believer in the doctrine of the gospel.  Kind, faithful, loving was she to all her friends, and in their memories for aye will she be held in reverence.  Of her it can be said that earth's cares have been put aside for glorious immorality-the reward of those, who, living, seek to do the will of God."
