    • OBITUARY
      ...Mrs. Margaret P. Foster, aged 86 years, died Saturday night in St. Mary’s
      hospital, after being confined to her bed only seven days, although she had been in failing health for several months. Her death was due to old age rather than to any specific ailment. Mrs. Foster had been a resident of Macon county for almost 60 years, coming to Illinois from Ohio with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Price, when a young woman, in 1858.
      ...Margaret Price was born near Hamilton, Ohio, Dec. 7, 1831, and when her parents came to Illinois they made their home in South Wheatland Township, near what now is the village of Elwin. Margaret Foster was married to David B. Foster April 10, 1860, and he died in Decatur in 1871 and soon after that she removed to Elwin, where she made her home until 1897, when she returned to Decatur, where she has since made her home. Mrs. Foster was a woman of wonderful vitality and until within recent months had not shown any of the signs of breaking
      physical strength such as might be expected in one of her age. Nearly all of the members of her father’s family lived to be 80 years of age or nearly so.
      ...She leaves two daughters, Miss Etta M. Foster and Mrs. Chester Cox, both of Decatur, and a brother, Jacob R. Price, of Decatur, and Mrs. Mary E. Hopkins of Charleston, and three grandchildren, Arthur F. Connard of Savannah, Ga., Mrs. J. R. Buckler of Elwin and Miss May Connard, Red Cross nurse now in London, England, en route to France.
      ...From the day of her girlhood Mrs. Foster had been a member of the Untied Brethren church and it may be of interest to the members of that church in Decatur to know that her mother’s brother, William Rhinehart, was the first editor of the Religious Telescope, the church publication.
      ...The body was removed to the undertaking rooms of Monson & Wilcox to be prepared for burial and the funeral service will be conducted in the chapel of that firm Monday morning at 9:30 o’clock. The burial will be in Mt. Gilead cemetery. Friends may call at the chapel Sunday afternoon from 2 to 5 o’clock. (Decatur Herald – October 21, 1917)
