Emmons, L. B. Mrs. – Obituary

Death of Mrs. L. B. Emmons

Last Saturday at 7:30 o’clock, the spirit of Mrs. Iva M. Emmons quietly passed from earth at the age of 21 years and 4 days. Mrs. Emmons had been suffering with the dread malady, consumption, for some time, and although the physicians had pronounced her case hopeless the end was not thought to be so near, and the summons came as a terrible shock to relatives and friends. The deceased was the second daughter of R.W. Bloom and Mary Etta Bloom, a native of Wallowa County and was married to Leonard B. Emmons about five years ago. The husband, three little ones, her parents and brothers and sisters are left to mourn her inconsolable loss, but while their hearts are torn with grief, they have the consolation that the parting is only for a time. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved ones.

Died Nov. 18, 1900, of consumption, at her home on Alder Slope, Mrs. Leonard B. Emmons. Deceased, Iva May Bloom, second daughter of R. W. and Mary Etta Bloom, was born Nov. 13th, 1879, at Alder, Oregon. Nov. 13th, 1895, was married to L. B. Emmons. By this death the husband is not only bereft, but there are three sons who will never know a mother. The funeral services were conducted Sunday at 3:30 o’clock at the home by Rev. S.S. Lewis. Many friends followed the remains to the place of burial; and while it seemed hard to lay so young a mother beneath the first snow of Winter, it will be a comfort to friends and relatives to know that she expressed herself as being prepared to die. Let us think of her as waiting for us in that Haven of rest where all sighing, sickness, tears and strife are wiped away. The Bible tells us: “Eye hath not seen nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.” — C.A.W.
