Anna May, daughter of Samuel and Lydia Plank, was born near Allensville, Pa., July 6, 1890; died near West Liberty, O., Nov. 15. 1911; aged 21 y. 4 m. 9 d., after a week's serious illness of Bright's disease. Again the grim reaper has come and this time he has taken Anna, our loving daughter, sister and friend. Again we must humbly bow in submission to our heavenly Father who does all things well.

Anna united with the Amish Mennonite Church when she was thirteen years old and lived a life devoted to the Master's cause.

She removd to Champaign Co., O., last spring. She was lovingly and tenderly cared for during her short sickness, but it was not God's will to restore her. We have confidence that she is beyond the river sweetly resting in Jesus.

One brother has preceded her to the spirit world. During the short time she was with us she made many friends, who, with her parents, two brothers, one sister, and many other relatives mourn her early departure.

Funeral services were held at the South Union Church on the 17th, conducted by J. J. Warye, assisted by Levi Plank.

Our Anna has gone to the regions above, So free from all sorrow and pain; To the land of the blest, the city of love, Where she never will suffer again.

Her wearied brow is cold in death, Her eyelids gently closed; Her loving voice is forever hushed, Her form is in sweet repose. [1]
