Funeral of Miss Anna Gilbert.
The perfume of flowers filled the spacious lawn a the home of Mrs. Mariah Culver of Monaville, Saturday morning, on the occasion of the funeral of her grand daughter, Miss Anna Gilbert. At the appointed hour, 11 o'clock, friends and relatives gathered from far and near, who by their presence would manifest the esteem and affection which all held for her who had passed beyond. The large concourse of people were made comfortable with seats as far as possible. The fragrance of the many floral pieces did all that beautiful emblems can do to dispel the gloom of the occasion. Conspicuous among this loveliness was a floral heart, contributed by Mr. Wm. W. Combs, to whom Miss Gilbert was engaged to be married. Miss Gilbert, who was in her twenty-first year, had always lived with her grandmother. Her decease is mourned by the entire community, where she was a general favorite.
Rev. E. J. Aiken, of Lake Villa, preached the funeral sermon.
