    Florence Clement VanHorn was born near North Loup, December 13, 1880, and died at her home in this village Thursday afternoon, June 6, 1918, aged about thirty-seven and one half years.
    When she was about fourteen years of age she was converted and became a member of the Seventh day Baptist church in this village. She was from the time of her conversion to the day of her death most consistent in her church pledge, was ever active in all lines of the church work - as a girl was one of the active members of the Junior and C. E. Societies, and at the time of her death was one of the most faithful of the teachers in the Sabbath school. The men who bore her body to the last resting place were members of her Sabbath School class.
    June 25, 1909, she was united in marriage with A. D. VanHorn of Boulder, Colorado. Here they made their home till about six years ago when they moved to this village and here the home has since been - here she was active in all lines of work as she found time from her household duties to give to outside work. To Mr. and Mrs. VanHorn were born four children, three girls and a boy, all of whom together with the husband and father are left to mourn the loss of a loved one.
    Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the S. D. B. church conducted by her pastor, A. L. Davis, and the body was laid to rest in the cemetery west of the village. The house was filled to overflowing, and the casket was completely covered with floral gifts from friends special designs from the Degree of Honor of which she was a member, the firemen of which Mr. VanHorn is an active member and the Young Womens' Missionary Society of which she was the president. The members of the society sat together and in a body passed by the remains of her who had given much time and effort in the upbuilding of the society.
    To her husband and motherless children the sympathies of a large circle of friends is extended in this, the darkest hour of their lives.
