TAMPICO TORNADO January 3, 1891


EISELE -  At her home, No. 616  E. Third street, Sterlng, Ill., on Tuesday, Dec. 30th, 1890, Mrs. Jacob EISELE, Jr., aged 18 years, 7 months and 16 days.

Mrs.EISELE was the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. G. ALDRICH of this city. She was born in Tampico, reared and educated here. She was a lady of prepossessing appearance, and was honored, esteemed and courted by the circles she moved in. She was of a loving, confiding nature, kind and generous and her friends were many.

She had been ill for several weeks and the early part of last week she seemed to be improving and a ray of hope was entertained for her recovery. It was of short duration, for Thursday she became worse and her decline was slow but steady until Tuesday morning when she passed from mortality to immortality. Her last moments were those of peace and contentment, and her spirit took its flight while she was surrounded by loving hearts and willing hands that had done all that they could for her. She leaves a husband, who is nearly prostrated by his great grief; a father, mother, two sisters, and a host of frineds to mourn her demise.

Her funeral took place Thursday at the M. E. church of Sterling. Rev. F. L BALDWIN officiating. The funeral was largely attended. A number from here were in attendance, who followed in sad procession a dear friend to the goal whence no wanderer returns.
