Maus Cora Emma Fisher, daughter of Henry and Mary Fisher, was born in Fulton county, Ind., January 6, 1870, and died near Mexico, Sept. 15th, 1899, aged twenty-nine years, eight months, and nine days. When she was quite young her mother died, leaving her to be cared for by kind friends, until her father remarried. She then lived with her parents until March 25, 1891, when she was united in marriage to Josiah Maus. To their union was born two daughters, one of whom preceded her to the spirit world about three years ago. She leaves a husband and the remaining daughter, about seven years old, besides a host of relatives and friends to mourn their loss. In February, 1895, the deceased united with the Brethren church at Mexico and lived a consistent christian life. For two long years she gently and patiently bore the severe affliction of lung disease, which finally caused her death. She was a great favorite among her many friends and acquaintances and always had a cheerful smile or kind words of condolence for all, as occasion demanded. The funeral was held Sunday at the Mexico church. Services were conducted by the Rev. Deitch, assisted by Rev. Bauman. Text, "Blessed are the Dead Which Die in the Lord." A large audience of relatives and friends was in attendance.
We miss thee from our home, dearest Cora, We miss thee from thy place; A shadow o'er our life is cast, We miss the sunshine of thy face.
We miss thy kind and willing hands, Thy fond and earnest care; Our home is dark without thee We miss thee everywhere.
Dearest loved one, we must lay thee, In the peaceful grave's embrace; But thy memory will be cherished 'Till we see thy heavenly face.
