Obituary of Annie (Good) Horning Another old settler gone to her eternal rest. Annie Good was born in Fairfield County, Ohio, in 1826. She was married to Jacob Horning, of Fairfield county, in 1850, they lived in holy wedlock for a little more than twenty-two years, each sharing the others sorrows. The fruits of this union were twelve children, eleven of them are living. Nine of the children were with their mother during her last hours of suffering. Samuel, of Colorado, and Jacob of Ohio could not be present. The sickness of the deceased was of short duration and during her sickness she was delirious the greater part of the time. On Saturday morning two daughters, Lydia Herner and Annie Ferguson, of Illinois, arrived and during the day she was conscious, just long enough to call their names and imprint upon them a mother's kiss and Sabbath morning, January 17, at 9 o'clock the spirit returned to the God who gave it. Mr. Shoemaker, a minister of her choice, was telegraphed and arrived Tuesday morning. The friends and neighbors gathered at ten o'clock the lonely company wended their way to the brick church in Shambaugh, where Rev. Shoemaker preached an instructive and able sermon from a text selected by the deceased in Rev. 14:12-13 verses. The deceased was a kind and loving mother and a good neighbor. The church was filled to and overflowing to pay their respects to the one they loved. The ministers of Shambaugh assisted with the services. Some of the songs were also selected by our dear sister, "Oh how happy are they who their Savior obey", "Asleep in Jesus", and "Oh those beautiful hands". The family have the sympathy of all of their friends in their dark hour of sorrow; but as we mourn, we mourn not as those who have no hope for if we are faithful we will meet her again for she was a faithful Christian. For forty-five years she has lived a consistent Christian life and has been a faithful member of the Mennonite Church. She was seventy years, 2 months and a few days old at her death. 1897.
