OBITUARY: Invalid Wife Enters into Rest
Mrs. Henry L. Waldo Dies at Home Northwest of Manchester on Oct. 6, aged 65 years
Mrs. Henry L. Waldo, daughter of the late Lewis H. and Laura J. Knight, pioneers of the Edgewood community, died at her home about two and one-half miles northwest of Manchester on Oct. 6, 1933, at the age of 65 years. For a quarter of a century Mrs. Waldo had been an invalid, confined either to her bed or a wheel chair. Funeral services were held from the Methodist church in this city last Saturday afternoon, the Rev. E. D. Wells officiating. Burial was made in the Earlville cemetery. Kate Knight was born in Kossuth county, Iowa, Feb. 26, 1868, and at the age of ten years accompanied her parents to Loup City, Neb., where the family resided for sixteen years. In the fall of 1894 they returned to Iowa, and on Oct. 24, 1900, Miss Knight was married to Henry L. Waldo. They had since lived in or near the towns of Manchester, Edgewood and Sand Springs, Iowa, Mr. Waldo for eight years being in the hardware business at Edgewood. She is survived by her husband, two sisters, Mrs. Jennie True, Arcadia, Neb., and Mrs. Jessie McDonald of Loup City, Neb., and two brothers, Charles L. of Deiht, and Albert E. of Edgewood. Two brothers and a sister, Lafayette, Albert and Mrs. Minnie Beuschoter preceded her in death. A friend pays the following tribute to Mrs. Waldo: “When confined to her bed such strength as her hands were given was to the limit usefully employed. When the wheel chair was used it bore her from task to task, which if painfully undertaken was gladly completed. Until very recent weeks the frail hands have written letters and cards bearing loving messages to relatives and friends.”
