from a loose clipping, source unknown 17 October 1891
Died at Manning Iowa, Oct. 17 inst. Mrs. C. L. VanPatten. The deceased will be better remembered as the youngest daughter of Mrs. Lamson, of Millburn, by her first husband Mr. Joseph Sadler. Mrs. Van Patten was born on the farm of Mr. Sadler, March 12, 1862 and died as she had lived at peace with all, without fear and uttering no regret, although concious to the last, except at parting with her husband, friends, and infant son then eight days old. Her last words were to name him, five minutes before death called her for his own. The infant whose name was lost upon her lips was to follow her in one short week to that undiscovered country from whose bourn no trouble doth return, Mrs. Van Patten desired to be buried at Millburn and her wish was faithfully regarded by loving hands and all that is mortal of her who we all loved, and her infant son lie in our quiet cemetery and their spirits have gone to God who gave them. In the death of Mrs. Van Patten there passed away a true type of an American woman being educated, a lover of books and having a good store of general information, industrious and an exceptionally good house wife. She was a true and faithful wife and friend, frank and without deceit. Hers was a blameless life ending with a peaceful death and all her friends can do now is to mourn which seems the common lot of all at some time. Friend.
