Mrs. Ida Luce, whose maiden
name was Smith, was born in Atchison County,
MO, August 14th, 1872, and died June 19th,
1903, in Lincoln, Neb. She was buried near
her old home, Hubbell, Neb. She was at the
time of her death, 30 years, 10 months and
2 days old.
When about 10 years of age
she moved with her parents into Nebraska
and settled on a farm near Hubbell.
She was married to Charles
Luce April 14th, 1892. Four children were
born to them. The oldest child, a little
boy, was laid to rest about four years or
a little more before the death of the mother.
Not long after the death
of this little boy Mrs. Luce professed her
faith in Christ for her salvation and united
with the Presbyterian Church of Hubbell.
In which faith she remain ed till her death.
At the death of her little
boy Mrs. Luce was so deeply affected and
prostrated with grief that she became disconsolate
and heartbroken and it seemed as though

It has seemed since to many of her friends
that this sad bereavement, if not the immediate
cause of her affliction which resulted in her death, must have been so great a grief
and burden for her to bear, that, together
with other complicated troubles, her death
A short time before her last
sickness her oldest little girl, Bessie
was taken seriously ill with fever and so
anxious was the grief-stricken mother over
the welfare of her little girl, that her
bodily informities [sic] entirely prostrated
her, from which fated spell she never recovered.
Finally death came to her relief on Friday,
Mrs. Luce's death is greatly
to be lamented. She merited the love and
confidence of all her numerous friends
and acquaintances. She was agreeable and
lovable to all who knew her . She possessed
a mild Christian spirit and loving disposition
to a marked degree. A kinder neighbor it
would be hard to find. She was ever ready
to lend a helping hand, even at a sacrifice
of her own comfort and convenience, for
the good of others.
The sad affliction and death
of this good woman causes many hearts to
feel sad. We are sorry to record her death,
but Christ, her rock of faith, has written
her name in the book of life there to abide
forever. She died full of faith and good
works. She was ready and wanting to go.
Her anxious spirit bound up in her feeble
and worn-out body, was longing to be free
and at rest with her little one, gone before,
in that blessed land, where there are no
more tears and sorrow. Blessed abiding faith
that clung to her in this life's trials
We are sorry of her death,
yet we are assured that she is now rejoicing.

Mrs. Davis confessed her faith in Christ early in life and became
identified with the Restoration movement. She placed her membership with the
Church of Christ of Hebron about 45 years ago, and was a member at the time of

done because of the epidemic which had just recently broken out, and all public
gatherings were prohibited by the city board of health. The services were held
at the grave, conducted by the pastor of the Church of Christ, who spoke words
of comfort to a fine company of old time neighbors and friends, who gathered to
pay tribute of respect to a mother, neighbor and friend. The music was
furnished by a mixed quartet and the floral offerings were very beautiful, which
