Obituary from: CEDAR RAPIDS [Iowa] GAZETTE, Thursday, 25 January 1912.


"In the death last Sunday of Mrs. Eliza Ann Booth, there passed away one of those brave, strong characters who have kept life cheerful and hopeful and courageous in spite of trials and discouragements that would have crushed many a person. Such lives are a shame to the weaklings who yield to the pressure of unfavorable circumstances and give up the battle for the best in life; but they are an inspiration to those who wish to hold steadily on in life's efforts in spite of hindrances and difficulties and troubles.

"Mrs. Booth's maiden name was Draper. She was born amid the hills of New Hampshire, at Claremont. In 1849 she was married to Carlos Booth. In 1853 they came west and settled in Cedar Falls where their family was reared and where the parents lived until the death of the father in 1902. After this, Mrs. Booth came to Cedar Rapids, making her home here with her daughter Edna, Mrs. Frank Smith. On December 4th she fell, crushing her hip. From that time until her death on January 21st, she was a great sufferer, yet keeping her courage and determination to live until she lost consciousness. She was the mother of nine children, five of whom lie in the cemetery at Cedar Falls, where the body of the mother was laid away on Tuesday, January 23. The living children are Albert C. Booth, Mrs. Edna B. Smith, Mrs. Mertie Shillinglaw, all of Cedar Rapids, and Frank E. Booth of Los Angeles, Cal.

"In her early New Hampshire home, Mrs. Booth united with the Methodist Episcopal church, of which she remained a member to the time of her death. She loved her Bible and read it daily until the time of her death. From it she found the courage to keep at the trying and difficult tasks of life, and to fill the hard days with cheer and hope. The funeral was conducted by her pastor, Rev. E.J. Lockwood, who had also been her pastor at Cedar Falls. She was a brave and strong woman; a loving, devoted mother; a faithful, trustful Christian."
