Obituary Etta Zion Piercy Daughter of John and Mary Cassell Zion Wife of Maley Piercy

Decatur County Journal
January l5, l89l
Died, of consumption, at her home near Lamoni, Iowa, after a lingering
illness, December 3l, l890, at 8:l5 p.m., MRS. ETTA GERTRUDE, wife of
MALEY PIERCY, and daughter of JOHN and MARY ZION; aged 23 years, 3
months and l0 days.
She was born near Decatur City, September 2l, l868, and when but a child
removed with her parents to Bloomington Township, where she has ever
since resided.  When l5 years old, she was converted and soon after
united with the Baptist Church, of which she has been a faithful member.
In August, l890, she was united in marriage to MALEY PIERCY of Tuskeego.
Thus a loving companion, dutiful daughter, kind sister, has been taken
from our midst.  She will also be missed from the ranks of teachers, as
she had followed that profession successfully for three years.  Wherever
she went she made friends and left a good impression in the hearts of
all she met.  But nowhere will she be missed as in the home circle, that
has for the first time been broken.  The sympathy of the entire
community is extended to the heart-broken young husband in this his
first deep affliction.
During her late illness he was constantly at her bedside, doing all that
human kindness could do but of no avail; and for the bereaved parents,
what a sad homecoming, after she had been laid to her long and final
rest.  Funeral services were conducted by the REV. DRAKE, of Ringgold
                                 A FRIEND.
