Rosa Marie Dell Shafer, daughter of Mr and Mrs George Shafer, was born May 11 1895 in Harrison County, Missouri and passed away at the home of her father north of Cainsville, August 5 1927.
On December 5 1925 she was united in marriage to J.W. Milner to which union twin boys were born who died in infancy.
She united with the M.E. Church of Cainsville about six years ago.
She had been a constant sufferer for six months, bearing her affliction with Christian fortitude and patience.
She had a ready smile for everyone and was always ready to lend a helping hand to the needy and suffering.
She was granted a license in practical nursing and did much good in her chosen work.
She is survived by her husbanad, J.W. Milner, her parents, Mr and Mrs George Shafer, three sisters, Mrs Alpha VanZuyen of Wendell, Idaho; Mrs Pearl Cochran, of Cainsville; Mrs Inez Cantrell, of Ann Arbor, Michigan; also two brothers, Ross and Oscar Shafer both of Cainsville, Mo. These with a host of friends wil remember her as a good daughter, wife, sister, and friend.
Her funeral service was conducted by the pastor of the M. E. Church last Sunday afternoon before a large company of relatives and friends. Dr. Gutherie has beautifully said concerning the Heavenly City.
"A City without griefs or groans; without sins or sorrows, without births or burials, without marriages or mournings; a city which glories in having Jesus for its King, angels for the guards, Saints for the citizens; whose walls are salvation and whose gates are praise."
