          Mrs. Mary Christina Schoentrup, 67 years old, one of the widely known and highly esteemed elderly ladies of the St. Vincent neighborhood, was found dead in bed Sunday morning at 6:30 o'clcok, at her home, one mile west of Prescott, in Shelby township.  The discovery was made by her son, Allie, who makes his home with his mother.  Dr. G. I.

          Mrs. Schoentrup was born and reared to young womanhood in Dearborn county, Indiana, when she moved to this county, and where she was married April 14, 1875, to the late Henry Schoentrup.   To this union ten children were born, eight of whom survive to mourn the loss.

          After coming to this county, Mrs. Schoetrup united with the St. Vincent Catholic church, where she has been a devoted worker for the cause of her Savior.  She has always taken an active part in all the societies of the church and her presence will be greatly missed by all who worked with her and knew her for her faithfulness to her God and friends.
