Female Ancestor Friday Etta Anna Gertrude Zion My great grand aunt

Friday is a perfect time to spend some time with a female ancestor. 
Today I am revisiting my great grand aunt Etta Zion


When Etta Anna Gertrude Zion was born on September 21, 1868, in Decatur City, Iowa, her father, John, was 36 and her mother, Mary Cassell , was 33. 

She married Maley Percy on August 20, 1890, in Lamoni, Iowa. 

She died on December 31, 1890, in Iowa, at the age of 22, and was buried in Lillie, Louisiana.  

I find it very sad that she passed away after being married just over two months.  

The picture I have of her has her husband cut away. Not sure what that means.  

She is buried in Lillie Cemetery in Decatur Iowa  under the name of Zion. 

 As of now I have no new information about her life or death.
