All of these are now living and were present to pay a parting tribute to a loving mother departed. Henry proceeded her to the great beyond four years ago. In 1856 they moved to Tama Co., locating on a farm just north of Garwin which was a vacant prairie at the time. No one but the earlier settlers knew of the hardships that these early pioneers had to endure. Her husband located on this farm, going in debt and with a determination to win, began planning for a future home. Twelve years afterward the grim hand of death called the husband and father, leaving Grandma Brothers with an added care and responsibility which she bravely assumed. A short time after the death of her husband, measles and whooping entered the home and death claimed two of the children, Enoch M. and Sarah. During all of these troubles Grandma proved her courage by rearing the children and making a home for them. Others may have done as well but none better. More than fifty years ago she responded to the call of her Master into a life of Christian service, and united with the Baptist church. In 1883 she transferred her membership to the Christian church at Garwin, of which she was a loyal member until the time of her departure, April 23, 1917. She died at the age of 81 yrs. 11 mo. and 28 dys. She leaves to mourn her loss two daughters, three sons, fourteen grandchildren and a number of other relatives besides a host of loving friends. The funeral was held Thursday A.M. April 26, on the anniversary of her birthday. Rev. J. W. McKee conducted the service at the Christian church. Mr. & Mrs. O. U. Van Horn, Mrs. S. G. Babcock and Harry Ford were the members of the Quartette with Carl Brewer at the piano.
