OBITUARY
-----
          Elizabeth C. Cotterman was born July 27, 1851, and was married to Samuel P. Stroup January 5, 1871, died in Waldron, Indiana, March 27, 1887, aged 35 years and 8 months.  She joined the Lutheran church at age 16, thus early in life giving her heart to the Lord.  She leaves three children, the oldest fifteen years, the youngest eight years old, and a husband to mourn as only those can mourn who have lost a good mother and a kind and affectionate wife.  One child, a babe, a few days old, preceded her only three days.  Just a few hours before she died she called her husband to her side, telling him she must soon leave him, saying,  "I have always looked on death as something terrible, but I find it pleasant now.  I have no fear of death, but I regret to leave you and the children."  She was especially anxious about Estella, the youngest, saying - "I would like to live to see her grown," but being assured that Estella should be well cared for said she could die content.  After speech was gone the weeping husband asked her if she was willing to go.  She nodded her head indicating that she was.
          Early in life she lost her mother and her father died about ten years ago.  Two sisters, one brother and one half brother to mourn her departure.
          Sister Stroup was a good neighbor and the people of Waldron will greatly miss her.  The poor will ever hold her in grateful remembrance.  Her hand was ever open to those in need or distress.  None knew her but to love her.  The funeral services took place on Tuesday and were directed by the Rebecca Lodge of I.O.O.F., the lodges of Shelbyville, Greensburg, and St. Paul assisting the Waldron lodge.  Funeral sermon was preached at the M.E. church by Rev. Stiwalt, of Mulberry, a very large audience being in attendance.  The remains were then followed by a large precession to the Ogden cemetery where the last sad rites were performed by the Rebeccas.  The family have the sympathy of all in this sad affliction.  Peace be to her ashes.
