Eliza Jane Jones Printy, 1862-1944
The Seymour Herald - 3 February 1944
Eliza Jane Jones, eldest daughter of Johnathan and Jane Sales Jones was born April 5, 1862 near Plano, Iowa and passed away after a lingering illness at her home in Promise City at the age of 81 years, 8 months and 16 days.
She had fallen on February 17, 1943, and suffered a broken hip which resulted in her death. She was married to James C. Printy on December 8, 1889 and they lived at their farm home in Independence township until his death which occurred on March 12, 1912. She then came and lived with her parents until she came to Promise City to make her home in the year of 1922 and has since resided here until her death. She is survived by five sisters and three brothers, Mrs. Matilda Peppers of Scotts Bluff, Nebr., Mrs. Ella Mosby of Promise City, Mrs. Belle Freeman of Katy, Texas, Mrs. Rose Southard of Fort Morgan, Colo., Mrs. Ethel Inskeep of Centerville, and the brothers, John, Bluford, and Green, who all reside in this community.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and one sister, Mrs. Sana Peppers, who passed away in Katy, Texas.
It can be said of her: she has fought a great fight and has finished the work that the Master sent her to do and there is therefore laid up for her, a crown of righteousness which the Lord shall give to all who love his appearance.
Blessed are the dead, who die in the Lord, from henceforth, Ay say the spirit, that they may rest from their labours and their works do follow them.
