Mrs. Alec Hubner
Rosa Schmidt, the daughter of William and Wilhelmina Schmidt, was born at Edelstein, Illinois, on December 2, 1889, and passed on to her reward April 12, 1953, after an illness of 19 years, at the age of 63 years, four months and 10 days. In March, 1902, she came with her parents, to South Dakota, where they settled on a farm near Avon, later moving into the city in March, 1915, where she lived until uniting in marriage with Alec Hubner, February 14, 1917.
The Lord blessed this union with five children: Three daughters, Lois, Cora (Mrs. Thorwald Raysby), Rhoda Rose, who passed away at birth; two sons: Calvin and Russell. All the children still reside in Avon.
Our sister accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and was baptized November 24, 1906, by the Rev. Olthoff, and received into the fellowship of the First Baptist Church, where she has been a member since that day.
She leaves to mourn her passing: her husband, Alec Hubner; four children, Lois, Cora, Calvin, and Russell; three grandchildren: Robert, Audrey, and Karl; many other relatives, friends, her pastor and church.
The Apostle Paul, under divine inspiration, spoke these words of comfort and triumph to the early Christians and they still thrill our souls when we think of death: "Death is swallowed up in victory, O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." It is a comfort for man to know that death holds no horror for the Sint of God. It's the gate by which we enter a life that will never end. May we be comforted and filled with rejoicing over our "Victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
