Obituary - THE SHELBY DAILY DEMOCRAT Thursday, March 12, 1896 page, 3 column 4 ------------ EMILY MILDRED VANPELT After A Lingering Illness, Passed Peacefully Away, Last Week ------------ Mrs. Emily M. Vanpelt, wife of S. L. Vanpelt, just south of this city, passed away at 10:30 p.m., March 5, 1896. She was the youngest daughter of a family of ten children of Col. Jacob Shank and Sarah Shank. Her brothers, Charles A., William, and Oscar, and sisters, Zorada Ann, Nancy, Sarah and Charlotte, have preceded her to the great beyond, while John S., Mrs. Mary O'Neal and Mrs. Catherine H. Vanpelt survive her. She was born March 4, 1840, was married to S. L. Vanpelt on September 20, 1864, and united with the Presbyterian Church, of this city in 1866. She has been a very active worker in the church from the date of her accession. She served for a number of years as treasurer of the Home Missionary Society of the White Water Presbytery, in which work she took a vast interest, devoting much of her time and contributing her means. She was one of the first of the membership of her church to advocate the sale of the old building on South Harrison street, and the erection of the present beautiful church on West Broadway. Her whole life has been one of sunshine and happiness. She never tired of entertaining her friends and was always pleased to have them about her. She was quite sensitive and ever carefully avoided saying anything to give offense to say to any one. She loved her husband with an affection that knew no bounds and one of her sorest disappointments in life was that she could not be spared to nurse him in his present sickness. Their lives along the journey of life have been so beautifully and thoroughly blended in that perfect Christian faith that it seems a most severe blow that either should have to be taken away from the other, but we must all bow to the will of Him who doeth all things for the best. At her bedside at the time of her demise were gathered her affectionate husband, her brother, John Shank, and her sisters, Mrs. Mary O'Neal and Mrs. Catherine H. Vanpelt; also her nieces, Mrs. Emma Murphy, Mrs. Mattie Major, Mrs. S. L. Major, Mrs. Will O'Neal and Mrs. Alexander Vanpelt; and her nephews, Will O'Neal, S. J. Cooper, Alexander Vanpelt and S. L. Major, together with a few friends. She fell asleep about seven o'clock and simply and peacefully slept from time into eternity without a struggle. Her taking away was the rounding up of a beautiful Christian life of an intellectual, earnest, devoted and magnificent woman. The funeral was held at the residence on Monday last at 9:30 a.m., after which she was interred in the Vanpelt cemetery in Noble township, this county, commonly known as the Ogden cemetery. The pall bearers were P. D. Harris, John Shelk, George Kent, Dr. S. P. McCrea, F. C. Sheldon and L. C. Powell. D. B. Wilson & Son had charge of the remains. Contributed by Barb Huff
