Came to Iowa City with her parents when a small child. they first settled on a farm a mile northwest of Wellman, and later moved to the farm which is now covered by the town bearing their name. The deceased was the first child born in the family of ten children, five of whom died white quite young, the surviving ones being -- Mrs. Jane Leighton of Iowa City, Alonzo of Sumner, Iowa, J. E. of Selma, Iowa, and Mrs. Charles Schachner of this place. The father passed away in 1901 and the mother in 1905.

      On October 3, 1876 she was a united in marriage to J. L. Coffey. To this union five children were born two of whom passed away in infancy. The living are Joseph Wilson of Chicago, Elmer Ivan of Wellman, Irving Edwin of West Chester, who with their father are left to mourn, besides nice grandchildren and numerous other relatives and many many friends.

      With the exception of five years which the family lived in Riverside, Iowa, the entire life of the deceased was spent in Wellman, until nine years ago when she moved to West Chester, which has since been her home. She had been in failing health for a number of years, but always bore the suffering with patients and remarkable fortitude. She had a kindly social disposition and took great enjoyment in the society of her family and friends, even when confined to her bed. When her health permitted she loved the companionship of her friends and neighbors, and her house was kown [sic] [known] for its hospitality. For many years she was a devoted christian and a member of the Methodist church. She was a regular attendant at all its services, and for a long time one of the most active class leaders in this church, and on going to West Chester transferred her membership to that place, and continued to take great interest in the church services though often prevented from attending because of poor health. She loved to serve God first in all things and was a devout wife and mother, a mind neighbor and sincere friend. Her life was a living example of the 31st chapter of Proverbs.

      The deceased passed away at Mudlavia Springs. Kramer, Indiana, at 4:45 P.M., April 14, where she had gone for treatment to relieve a serious illness which came upon her while visiting Chicago.
