1908 Obituary:1580 In Memoriam. Aurie Marie Phillips was born at Wheeler, Porter County, Indiana, April 12, 1885, and died July 30, 1908, aged 23 years, 3 months, and 7 days. In 1886 her parents moved to Englewood, Chicago. Here she entered the public schools and in the summer of 1904 graduated from the Hyde Park High School. She united with the Parnell Avenue Presbyterian Church in 1896 and lived a faithful member until the Master called her to a home in the Church Triumphant. During her early life, and school girl days, she spent much of the time with her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Crull, of Wheeler. She became to them as a daughter well beloved. Shortly after her graduation her health failed, so that for a time it was feared that consumption had marked her for an early grave. She came to the home of her uncle at Wheeler, and here, under the direction of her physician, she took open air treatment, and by the careful and skillful nursing of her aunt, she was restored to health so that she was able to take up the active duries of life. To the genial atmosphere and quiet of the home of her uncle and aunt she came to obtain a short, but much needed rest. Not many days after her arrival she was stricken with typhoid fever, and soon the end came. At the home where she died, on Sunday afternoon, August 2nd, the funeral services were conducted by Rev. C. A. Brooke, assisted by members of the choir of the Wheeler M. E. church. This service was attended by a large number of relatives and neighborhood friends. The remains were laid to rest in the quiet cemetery near Wheeler. Thus ended a brief, but beautiful life. A life full of the sunshine of genuine love. She bore a queenly characer, graced with all the adornments of a pure and noble womanhood. She sleeps quietly in her narrow bed, but lives largely and lovingly in the hearts of those who stood nearest to her in the sacred relationships of life. By her genial spirit and helpful presence she sweetened and brightened the atmosphere of every circle into which she entered. She sleeps well; we will see her in the morning.
