Vanderhoof, Eliza (31 OCT 1844 - 19 AUG 1908)

Died, at her home in this village yesterday morning at three o'clock, Mrs. Ward Vanderhoof of cancer of the stomach at the age of sixty-four years.

Deceased was born in Ohio on Oct. 31, 1844, and came to Wisconsin twenty-two years ago and kept house for her brother, George Castner for three years on a farm in the town of York, Clark County, Wis. She was married to ward Vanderhoof on Sept. 4, 1889, and settled on a farm in the town of Sherman, Clark County, where they resided for eleven years, and eight years ago moved to this village, where she resided up to the time of her death.

Twenty-one years ago she became a faithful member of the M. E. church. She was a strong believer in the Supreme Being and her last words were "She trusted in God." After a long, busy and useful life she died as she had lived, honored, trusted and loved. Her Christian life was beautiful from its beginning to its close and through all the vicissitudes and sorrow that she met in the way, her faith in God never wavered. But she has left us and soon the autumn leaves will fall upon another grave that hides from us all that which is mortal of a true and noble woman.

She leaves to mourn her loss a husband, seven children, two daughters, Mrs. Oscar Rossman of this village and Mrs. Jessie Vanderhoof of Antigo, five sons, Munson and Edward of the town of Sherman, Calvin of Ladysmith, Joseph of Park Falls, William of tower City, Dakota, two sisters, Caroline Carney of Indiana and Jane Blumfield of Coldwater, Mich., and two brothers, John Castner of this village and Seward Castner of Spokane, Wash.

The funeral services will be held tomorrow morning at half past ten at the M. E. Church and the remains laid to rest in the M. E. Cemetery.
