    Where has she gone since yesterday--
    She, who left us here?
    Today she seems so far away
    Who yester-eve was near.
    No map of ours on sea or land,
    Her journeying may trace;
    We only know she's reached her home
    And seen her Father's face.
    Yet who would call the glad soul back
    To rouse the resting clay?
    Or who would wish that she might know
    Our morrow's pain and strife?
    When she who, here, so longed to live
    At last has entered life.

    Funeral services were conducted by Rev. A.W. cook at the Congregational church at Coloma Corners Saturday afternoon. July 11. She was laid to rest beside her husband in the Pleasant Hill Cemeter.4

  • ObituaryText: Jas. N. Spalding, born on August 18, 1867, youngest of five children, all preceeding him in death, was the son of James F. and August [sic] Spalding. "Jim" as we all knew him, was born in West Coloma and lived nearly his entire life in this town. He was of the eighth generation of American born Spaldings, the first of that name, Edward Spalding, having come to America to settle in Virginia Colony about 1619. On April 12, 1891, Jas. was united in marriage to Miss Susie Ross, also of Coloma. The wedding ceremony was performed at New Chester, Adams County, Wis. The couple lived for a few years in Richfield, Adams County, on a farm, and when the husband was taken ill he gave up this work and moved later to Coloma village where on May 3, 1935, Mrs. Spalding passed on to the Great Beyond to await the coming of her husband who went to join her there on the evening of January 24, 1939. Only one daughter was given this couple, Gertrude, now Mrs. Ben Blackmore, of Southwest coloma, where the father went for the last few years of his life, death coming to him as he sat quietly beside the fire in the living room of the daughter's home.
    Five grandchildren were given him. Glen, Ardin, Norma, Vieva, and Kaith. Jim's love for those near and deat to him was exemplified in so many ways and his exceeding kindness to all the neighbors and other friends will cause him to be missed more than can be told. His several nieves and nephews of both his and his wife's families are all greatly saddened by the passing of "Uncle Jim"
    He was a member of Coloma I.O.O.F. since May 16 1908, and lived faithfully to its precepts--friendship, love and truth. The I.O.O.F. attended the last rites in a body and many R.F.D. carriers were also present to attest their loyalty to the man who had been one of them for twenty years and who retired from that work to live quietly as befitted one of his years, in June, 1933. Funeral services were held from his home to the M.E. Church where Rev. Jas. Saunders officiated in the last rites. Interment was made at Pleasant Hill cemetery where the family lot is now the last earthly resting place of him who will be remembered as one who "spoke no ill of others."

    Card of Thanks
    To each friend who came to the aid of our familiy in our time of need of assistance, we wish to express our deepest gratitude. For the help at the home, the flowers, the cooked foods, to the I.O.O.F. for their rites, the pastor and the singers, we can only say you all did much to help us bear our sadness. Thank you. Mr. and Mrs. Ben Blackmore and children.6

    His has been a life of service and with the summons of the Master came the recompense, "Well done, good and faithful servant." At the end of his life we shall not be asked how happy we were, but how helpful we were; not how full life was of success, but how full it was of sacrifice; not how ambition was gratified, but how love was served, for life is judged by love and love is known by her fruits.
