  Mrs. Robert S. Shook Completes Her Earthly Pilgrimage
  Called to that "sweet and blessed country, the home of God's elect. "But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly."
  The death of Tillie, beloved wife of Robert Shook, occurred at noonday on April 17th.. She was a suffer from the dreaded cancer, and to the afflicted one the summons came as a sweet relief from pain. Her birth occurred in the country near Du Quoin, 45 years ago. She leaves her devoted husband, and only daughter, Ida. Also an aged mother. Mrs. John Heberer; a brother Will' and sisters three. Mesdames Apphun and Zollere of Old Town, and Ketscher of Santa Anna, California. The funeral occurred Tuesday afternoon from her late home, the interment across the winding road by the bridge to the lonely ground consecrated to this rrepose of the dead.
  Mid Pastoral Scenes With the exception of a few years spent near East Park street in our city, her life has been spent amid pastoral scenes and environment. After their residence in our city, the little family returned to the spacious farm manse at Old Town, adjoining the old Seminary, and said to be the highest point of ground in Perry county. The scene is commanding and the view like that from an old wide open doorway. Mrs. Shook was a lover of great outdoors, and a home maker in the truest sense. Before her final illness her home was a genial place for the country folk and for the motorists and old time friends from our city. The welcome and the plentiful table were awaiting them in that hospitable and prosperous manse. Social gatherings and later party guests and friends of the young daughter passed over the threshold many and many a time. The Home Over There Again the doorway opened on the beautiful day of her burial and these friends with silent feet passed over that once merry threshold. With song and prayer in the faith of the Evangelical church they bore her body to the grave nearby. And looking beyond the things of which are seen her friends hope that somewhere she will watch for them in the doorway on the hilltops of that dearr and blessed country that hath no pain.
