Conger, Elizabeth Jane nee Barrackman

Spirit of Democracy, Woodsfield, Ohio, dated, March 13, 1929

On February 25, 1929 at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Jay Huffman at Paden City, W.Va., occurred the death of Mrs. Elizabeth Jane Conger. Born Dec. 26, 1845 near Benwood, Ohio, she was at the time of her death, 83 years, 1 month and 25 days. Her maiden name was Elizabeth Jane Barrackman, and on Sept. 23, 1869, she was united in marriage to John M. Conger, to which union four children were born. They are: Mrs. Bert Agin of Zanesville; Mrs. Jay Huffman of Paden City; Daniel W., who died in infancy; and Margaret C., who died at the age of 13 years.

There are also four grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and one sister, Mrs. Margaret Jackson of Barnesville, Ohio, besides many other relatives and friends, who mourn for one who was so good and kind and loving in all her ways of life.

Mrs. Conger became a member of the M.E. Church at Fletcher’s Chapel, near Laings, Ohio, at the age of twenty years, and throughout the years, she lived an exemplary Christian life, exercising a firm faith in her Saviour and his teaching. She died in the conviction that there is a crown of unfading glory laid up for those who love and obey their Lord.

On Tuesday, February 26, the body was laid to rest in the beautiful North View Cemetery at New Martinsville, there to await the resurrection following funeral services held in the Northern Methodist Church, conducted by the pastor, Rev. Odell.

Jesus, while our hearts are bleeding
O’er the spoils that death has won
We would at the solemn meeting
Calmly say, “Thy will be done.”

Though cast down, we’re not forsaken,
Though afflicted, not alone
Thou didst give and thou hast taken
Blessed Lord, “Thou will be done.”

Tis hard to break the tender cord
When love has bound the heart
“Tis hard, so hard to speak the words
Must we forever part.

Dearest loved one we have laid thee
In the peaceful gravis embrace,
But thy memory will be cherished
Till we see thy heavenly face.—L.N.W.

Card of Thanks-We wish to tender our sincere thanks to our friends and neighbors who so kindly assisted us in sickness and burial of our wife and mother—John Conger and Daughters
