Jannie Allen, daughter of Benjamin and Sarah Allen, was born March 1, 1869 in Wenabago, Illinois, and passed away at her home in Onaga, Kansas, September 9, 1940, at the age of 71 years, 6 months and 8 days. On May 23, 1883, she was united in marriage to Samuel Shockey, who passed away October 19, 1935. To this union eleven children were born: Allen Shockey, Mrs. Margaret Perrussel and Mrs. Philena Holmgren of Onaga; Mrs. Elsie Shaw of Irving, Kans.; Mrs. Hattie Perrussel of Fraser, Colorado; Mrs. Winnie Baughman of Riverdale, California; Samuel Shockey Jr. of Pacific Beach, California, also those preceding her in death, George Mose and John Shockey and Bessie Ramsey.
Since her marriage, Mrs. Schockey has lived on a farm near Wheaton for thirty-four years; in Winfield for twenty years and has spent her last four years in Onaga. She joined the Baptist church in Wheaton, Kansas at the age of nine and has changed her letter to the Baptist church in Onaga, in March, 1940.
She leaves to mourn her passing, seven children; one brother, Mose Allen, of Winner, South Dakota, who has now reached the age of 97 years; two sisters, Mrs. Sarah Brown of Hamilton, Kansas and Mrs. Charity Conaway of Fostoria, Kansas; forty-seven grandchildren, a number of other relatives and a host of friends all of whom have loved her dearly.
Mrs. Shockey lived a good Christian life, and before her death, she wrote the testimony that she was ready to leave her home her on earth to meet her master.
"I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus since I found him a friend so strong and true. I would tell you how he changed my life completely. He did something that no other friend could do. No one ever cared for me like Jesus. There's no other friend so kind as he, no one else could take the sin and darkness from me. Oh how much he cared for me. All my life was full of sin when Jesus found me, all my heart was full of misery and woe. Jesus placed his strong and loving arms about me and he led me in the way I ought to go. Every day he came to save me till some day I see his blessed face above. No one ever cared for me like Jesus. There's no other friend so kind as he, no one else could take the sin and darkness from me. Oh, how much her cared for me."
Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at the Baptist church, conducted by Miss Ruth Campbell. Interment was in the Onaga cemetery.
