      Mrs. Catherine Swing
      Called To Her Reward
      _____________

      Mrs. Albert Swing passed away at her home on Brooks street last Sunday, after an illness of some time, the ailment finally being diagnosed as cancer of the stomach.
      Mrs. Swing, with her husband and children, moved to this vicinity in 1909, for many years residing on the farm 1 3/4 miles southeast of town now occupied by Romeo Gudeman. They later purchased the farm in Hanging Grove township, Jasper county, now occupied by her son, Paul Swing, where her husband died about eight years ago. She continued to operate the farm until five years ago, when she purchased her home in town.
      Catherine Hoffman was born in Remicourt, France, February 2, 1862, and was the daughter of Jacob and Anna Hoffman. She died at her home in Francesville, on Sunday, March 15, 1931, at the age of 69 years, 1 month and 13 days.
      When but a small girl her parents moved to Vitrey, France, where she spent her girlhood. In 1881, she came to America, settling in Illinois.
      She united with the Christian Apostolic church at the age of 21 years, remaining a true Christian and a wonderful mother to the end.
      In 1884 she was married to Albert Swing, and they started farming near Fairbury, Illinois, later moving to near Cissna Park, Illinois, from where they moved to Wolcott, Indiana, in 1904.
      To this union were born thirteen children: Mrs. Martha Slagel, Mrs. Lena Nussbaum and Albert Swing, of Fairbury, Illinois; Joe Swing, of near Hoopeston, Illinois; Mrs. Kathryn Shumaker, of Metamora, Illinois; Mrs. Anna Getz, of Tremont, Illinois; Mrs. May Kopka, and Charles and Paul Swing near Francesville, and Esther, Naomi and George Swing at home.
      Besides her children, she leaves to mourn her loss 38 grandchildren, six sisters and five brothers, and a host of warm friends.
      Funeral services were held Wednesday forenoon at the Christian Apostolic church, and a very large concourse of relatives and friends accompanied the remains to the cemetery east of town, where she was buried.

      _________

      Earth has lost its look of gladness,
      Heaven seems to us more bright;
      Since the spirit of our loved one
      Took its happy homeward flight.
      Oh, that dear one, how we loved her;
      Oh, how hard to give her up,
      But an angel came down for her,
      And removed her from our flock.
