Sophronia Harylett Case was born in Battenburg, Germany, May 11, 1845 and died at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Cline in Angola on Feb 22, 1923, at the age of 77 years, 9 months and 11 days.  She was united in marriage will William Case in 1865.  Her husband died in the spring of 1893, leaving her with Mr Case's aged mother and sister Betsy to care for.  It was a responsibility and a task she bravely met, caring for them in all the illnesses as they came.  Every one knew her as Aunt Fronia.

The funeral services were held in the Congregational church of Angola, of which she was a faithful member, on Sunday, Feb 25, at 2:30 o'clock, conducted by Rev. John Humfrey.  She was laid to rest in the old cemetery.

We wish to thank all our friends and neighbors for their kindness and assistance during the sickness and burial of our aunt, also for the beautiful flowers from the friends and neighbors and the pall bearers for their services.
Mr and Mrs Albert Cline, and children
