Name of Deceased: OSBORN, Sarah Elizabeth (CURRY)
Name of Newspaper: Waverly Journal
Date of Obituary: November 28, 1919
Obituary: After months of patient suffering, Mrs. W. T. OSBORN, was called to her reward and died at her home in this city Saturday, November 22.
Sarah Elizabeth, only child of W. H. and Mary CURRY, was born in Green county, Kentucky, March 14, 1845. She was married to W. T. OSBORN, August 8, 1865, and to them three children were born, Katherine; William W., of Berkley, Calif.; and Mrs. C. H. WALTERS, of Houston, Tex.
In November 1881, Mr. and Mrs. OSBORN moved to Illinois, settling near Waverly. Later they spent two years in Springfield and then returned to Waverly where they have since resided.
Mrs. OSBORN was converted at an early age, uniting with the Baptist church. Upon coming to Illinois she united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church, at Providence and upon their removal to Waverly transferred her membership to the Congregational church, of which she has since been an earnest and beloved member, ever ready to do her full part. Her abiding faith was expressed during her long illness by her frequent declaration,
“All is well.”
She leaves her husband, three children and five granddaughters to mourn her loss.
Funeral services were held at the Congregational church Monday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock, conducted by Rev. Francis E. SMITH, pastor of the First M. E. church. Interment was in East cemetery.
