      Rings -

      On February 10, 1909, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. F.H. Krebill of Donnellson, Iowa, Elisabeth Rings (nee Ellenberger) passed away at the age of 89 years, 1 month, and 14 days. Our dearly beloved was born in Friedelsheim, Rheinpfalz, Germany. In the year 1850 she came with her parents to Lee County, Iowa. In 1851, she was joined in matrimony to Christian Rings. The marriage was blessed with 4 children, from whom 2 -- both sons -- were taken early in death. In the year 1859 death suddenly claimed her husband by a sudden misfortune. During her long life, she was often ill, and suffered much. Her long-held wish to pass away gently to the Lord was finally fulfilled. She leaves behind 1 daughter and 11 grandchildren. P.P. Hilty offered the funeral sermon, from Psalms 23:4.
