Throughout . Life, . Mrs. Sophia Mc
Laughlin Found Delight in Un
selfish Service to Others.
Death came to Mrs. Sophia Mc
Laughlin, a pioneer resident of Elm
wood, Jast Monday evening, Novem
ber 21, 1938. She was born March
4, 1855 near Topferris, New York,
and was 8.1 years, 8 months and 17
days old. Her father" was born in
Bremen, Germany, and her mother
in Hanover, Germany, but soon af
ter their marriage came to the Unit
ed States to establish their home.-
When Mrs. McLaughlin was two
years old her father died, and six
years later her mother also passed
away, leaving her an orphan at the
tender age of eight. For a short time
after the death of her 'mother, she
was cared for by an aunt, and was
then taken to a children's orphanage
in New York City. When she was
about twelve years old. in company
with a car load of orphans, she was
sent to Henry, Illinois; where she
was adopted by Mr. and Mrs. James
Iiosic, who gave her the same paren
tal care and treatment as their own
children. She attended school. Sun
day school and church services with
her fosters sisters and brothers, hav
ing fortunately been adopted into a
real Christian home.
She continued to make her home
with her foster parents until her
marriage on November 16, 1873, to
Henry McLaughlin. They lived on
a farm in that vicinity for seven
years, coming to Nebraska in the
spring of 1880 and locating on the
farm now occupied by their son
Leonard. For 21 years they resided
on the farm, until the spring of
1901, when they retired from farm
life and moved into Elmwood. '
Five children were born to Mr.
and Mrs. McLaughlin, one of whom.
William, preceded his parents in
death. Those surviving are Mrs.
Anna Rogge, of Lincoln; Harry, of
Lincoln; Leonard, of Elmwood, and
Mrs. Minnie Creamer, of Waverly.
The husband and father passed
away March 20, 1917.
From early life on, Mrs. McLaugh
lin was a devout Christian. For many
years she was a faithful and devoted
member of the Church of Christ' at
Elmwood. The Sunday school class
which she taught for years will miss
her greatly, but, we feel sure, will
remember her Christian teachings
and be influenced to right living by
She wag also a - member of the
Order of Eastern Star, at Elmwood.
which organization she served as
chaplain for a quarter of a century.
As a neighbor and friend she was
loyal in every way and could always
be counted' among the ; faithful In
every time of need. She derived
pleasure from being of service ' to
others and oftentimes taxed her own
strength 'and health to assist ; those
in need or distress.
In her-passing from the' commun
ity, the memory of her unselfish
Christian life will long linger in the
hearts of those who knew and loved
her best. She has fought a good
fight; she has finished her course;
she has kept the faith and now
goes to the rich reward she has so
Besides the four children, there
are left to cherish and revere her
memory eight grandchildren, six
great-grandchildren, three foster sis
ters, one foster brother and a host
