Mrs. Sarah Reber, widow of Fred Reber, died at Spokane, Wash., Aug. 27, 1926, aged 93 years and 19 days.

She was born in Union Co., Penn., Aug. 9, 1833, and lived there till she was 11 years of age, then moving with her parents to Illinois, where she grew to womanhood. In 1848 she was married to Frederick Reber, and soon after they came to Clark County, Wis., settling at the town of Weston where Mr. Reber operated a saw mill for a number of years, and cleared up a farm. They moved to Neillsville, where Mr. Reber died. Mrs. Reber made her home here till 1913 when she went west.

To Mr. and Mrs. Reber were born four children, two died in infancy; a daughter, Meda, was drowned when 15 years old; another daughter, Mrs. Angeline Ferguson, died in 1913. Mrs. Reber is survived by a granddaughter, Mrs. H. N. Creviston and a great grandson, Howard Creviston, both of Spokane.
