Obituary of Sarah Fatima (RUSH) RIDDLE [1839IN-1910IN]. THE BLOOMFIELD NEWS, Bloomfield, Greene County, Indiana, Thursday, August18, 1910, Volume XXXIV, Number 40, Page 4, Column 3, DEATHS HARVEST. Tima Riddle. [Transcribed from Bloomfield-Eastern Greene County PublicLibrarys IHS Microfilm Records.] Sarah Fatima RUSH was born on a farm in Lawrence County, bordering on the Greene County line, November 5, 1839; died at the old home just across the line in Greene County, August 10, 1910. She lived her entire life of more than seventy years in the same locality. She was the oldest child of John C. and Mahala (HOLMES) RUSH, who raised a family of eleven children three boys and eight girls. She united with the Methodist church in her girlhood and was a great worker in church and Sunday school until she married. She was married to Stephen RIDDLE, November 3, 1866. To this union were born two boys, Norman and Milford RIDDLE. On account of domestic trouble she took her two little baby boys and returned to the old home of her father and mother, where she lived until called home to glory. Mr. RIDDLE procured a divorce and married another woman, but Tima lived atrue Christian life, with her boys, who grew up to be good honorable,useful citizens and are left to mourn the loss of as good a mother as any boy ever had. Her father and mother have been dead for many years. One brother Norman A. RUSH, was killed in the Battle of Shiloh, while defending his countrys flag on that beautiful Sunday morning, April 6, 1862, at the same hour Tima was teaching a class in Sunday school at the old log church in the valley near her home. Two sisters and a brother live in Oklahoma, two sisters live in Kansas, one sister in Colorado, one sister in Missouri, one brother lives in Bloomfield and one sister lives at the old home in Jackson Township. She nurtured her father and mother in their last sickness, and has beenan angel of mercy in her neighborhood for many years. Her lot in life was very hard few, very few, of the joys and good things of life ever fell to her share. Her last sickness was only a few days, but very painful, being an acute attack of bowel trouble. The remains were laid away in the family cemetery near her home. Why should we dread death? To all such as Tima it is the gateway to heaven, the portal to endless joy and bliss. It is god by her and good morning over there.
