On last Monday at the First Reformed Church in this city, occurred the funeral of Mrs. Vogelaar, wife of Willem Vogelaar, living a mile and a half east of town. Deceased was a daughter of Gerret/Geurt Bennink, has been married about fifteen years, and leaves her husband and four children to a heritage of sorrow for a loss for which earth has no compensation. This is especially true of the children. What human agency can take the place of a Godly mother's loving counsel in training the boy or girl for a life of usefulness and virtue? None not so bereft can estimate or realize the loss.

Mrs. Vogelaar has passed away from this life, with its duties and all its endearing ties, at an age when most people are in their prime. She has for several years been afflicted with diabetes, but her condition was not regarded as dangerous until the day before she died, when, realizing that the "time of her departure was at hand," she called the family around and bade them that most sorrowful of all adieux, the "final farewell." The snow-covered earth received the weary body, the disengaged spirit sought a brighter home.
