She was born June 22, 1822 at Baselland, Switzerland. On March 31, 1846 she married Jacob Schaffner. In the year 1854 they come to America. After living one year with her husband's parents they settled on a farm near Berger, Mo. Their union was blessed with 9 children, 7 of whom preceded her in death.

      After the death of her husband in June 1901, she sold the farm and went to live with her daughter, Mrs. Jacob Betz who loved and cared for her mother during the declining years with kindness and affection of a loving daughter.

      In the death of this good woman, the community loses a kind neighbor and one of the nicest of women and the church loses one of its most faithful members for since 1855 Mrs. Schaffner has always taken an active interest in all church work, and has been a subscriber to the church paper for over 60 years. She was the oldest member of the Berger Methodist E. Church.

M/M Dan Schaffner, Owensville, MO, and M/M Sam Spindler, Sullivan, MO. Also 14 grandchildren and 12 great grand children, and a host of of other relatives and dear friends.

      The funeral took place Monday at one o'clock at the residence of Jacob Betz, thence to the Berger M.E. Cemetery. A large number of people accompanied the body to its last resting place, where the former friends and nieghbors of the deceased gathered to pay their last respects to the departed. Rev. O.M. Brinkmann nobly and appropriately officiated.

      The following from a distance attended the funeral: M/M Dan Schaffner of Owensville, MO, Mrs. Louise Schaffner, Mrs. Arthur Schaffner and family, Mrs. Melinda lewis and son of Pacific, M/M Will Lornez, Dan and Gotlieb Meyer of St. Louis, MO, Barney Schaffner of California, MO., and Mrs. Ben Spindler of Sullivan, MO.

      Peace be they slient slumber, mother in thy grave so low, thou no more will join our number, thou no more our sorrows know, yet again we hope to meet thee, when the day of the life has fled, and in heaven with joy to greet thee, where no farewell tears are shed.
