After a lingering illness death came peacefully yesterday morning (December 19, 1905) to Mrs. Elizabeth Webber, wife of James Webber, at the family residence, 209 West Sixth street. A complication of diseases with heart trouble which developed in the last two weeks were the cause of death. She was 56 years old and was a native of Hancock county, having been born near the Asbury chapel, in which locality she spent her girlhood days. She was the daughter of James and Sarah Allison.

The funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock at her late home and will be private, only the immediate relatives and a few close friends being present. The Rev. Edward M. McMilin of the First Presbyterian church, assisted by the Rev. W. E. Hill, will conduct the services, and burial will be made in Riverview cemetery. Mrs. Webber had been a member of the Presbyterian church since she was 12 years old, and had attended the local church, during her residence of 32 years in East Liverpool. She lived a quiet, unassuming Christian life and was greatly beloved by her family and friends. She is survived by her husband and the following children: Robert, Jane, Lois, Myrtle, Edna, and Mrs. Joseph Andrews, of this city, and one sister, Mrs. Thomas Ewing, of Fairview.
