Mrs. Rose Anna Strong passed peacefully away at her home on the farm, near Ontario, Vernon County, Wis., on Tuesday, July 18, 1911, at 5:30 p.m., of general debility, at the advanced age of 82 years.

White of Colby, Clark Co., Wis., the father having died the same year. On Aug. 1st, 1855, she was again united in marriage to I.P. Strong, and to this union two children were born, Mrs. Eva E. Potter of Neillsville, and Mrs. Myrtle Quackenbush of Norwalk, Monroe Co. April 24th, 1861, she, with her family started from Lodi, Ohio, and made the trip all the way to Wisconsin with wagons, arriving in Ontario, June 6th, the same year. In 1862, Mr. Strong erected the Vernon House, in which home he passed to the beyond May 9th, 1874. After his death Mrs. Strong removed to the farm which had since been the home she loved so well and in which she passed peacefully away, surrounded by her three daughters and loving friends. She was an active, energetic woman to the very last, not casint her burdens aside until the Master called. While she was not affiliated with any church her life was a beautiful symbol of Christian faith. She was a kind and loving mother, generous and obliging to all, and no one was ever turned from her door hungry. She leaves three daughters, three grandsons and one brother, living in the East. May her good deeds live after her.

The burial services were held in the Baptist Church, conducted by Rev. Gales, from an original text, "Thy loving kindness is better than life."
