1918, December 31
Siple, Sarah Ann
Obituary from ???ervative (newspaper), Tipton, Iowa
SIPLE - Mrs. Sarah Ann Siple, daughter of Nicholas and Catharine (Moyer) Monk, was born in Ontario, Canada, July 20, 1835 and died early Tuesday morning, December 31, 1918, aged 83 years, 5 months and 11 days. On Dec. 3, 1856, she was married to Lewis Justice Siple, to which union were born seven sons and four daughters, most of whom, with her husband, preceded her in death. Those who survive her are: Michael of McIntyre, Iowa, Peter of Oakley, California; Cynthia Welty of Platville, Colorado, John of Ida Grove, Iowa. Thirteen grandchildren and two great grandchildren join with these in mourning her decease. She was herself the daughter of a large family, of whom only Jesse W. Monk of McFall, Mo. And Simon M. Monk of Tipton, remain.
On the 28th of February, 1866, she moved with her family to Iowa, where for 53 years, it was her privilege to contribute her humble part toward the development of the state. Since the death of her husband, Sept. 24, 1912, she has spent a good deal of her time alone, sustaining her reputation for hard work and sincerity of purpose. The Bible was her constant companion and its open pages could frequently be seen by her visitors. Her religious convictions are further attested by the fact that she was a member of the Presbyterian church of Tipton since March 6, 1887. She laid her burdens down at the call of her maker just before the sun by its rising ushered in the last day of the old year.
