Mrs. Harry Baldwin

The community was shocked Wednesday morning when the sad news came that Mrs. Harry Baldwin has passed from this life into the world beyond, Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock at Deadwood S.D. on January 27, 1920.

Della A. Hollenbeck was born at Odebolt, Ia. July 10, 1885. She came to Wyoming in the spring of 1915 and took up a homestead where she lived until the following spring when she was married to Harry Baldwin March 11, 1916. After a short wedding tour they returned and took up their residence on the Groom farm, where she resided until just a few days before her death.

She was 34 years, 6 months and 17 days old at the time of her death.

The body was shipped to Knob Noster, Mo. to be buried beside her mother and brother who have preceded her.

She leaves to mourn her death her husband, father, stepmother, six sisters and one brother.

As a sheaf which is ripe for the harvest
Is carefully garnered in
So she was plucked by the Master,
From this world of pain and sin.
She no doubt is waiting
Among the blood-washed throng,
With those who've gone before her
Singing redemption's song.
With those who have borne tribulation
Been washed in Jesus' blood
Our sister today is dwelling
In the beautiful City of God.

In one of those heavenly mansions
Which Jesus went to prepare,
She probably rests from her labors
Oh! Can't you just see her there?
No lines of care or sorrow
To be seen in her clear calm brow
No tears or moans of suffering
Do we hear her mutter now.
