FANNIE ELIZABETH WARRENBURG was born in Fayette Co., Ohio, Oct. 16, 1847. When she was four years of age, her parents moved to Illinois. On July 28, 1866, she was united in marriage to Levi Mastin. They lived near Weldon, Ill. thereafter for nine years. They then moved on to Iowa where they have since resided. In 1893 they purchased a home in Lake City and have lived here for the past 22 years.
Mrs. Mastin united with the Methodist church in Lake City during the pastorate of Rev. C. E. Winder, in 1894, and as long as she was able to do so was a faithful attendant. Over four years ago she was stricken with a lingering illness, and for nearly two years was confined to her bed in a hospital where she passed away peacefully on Feb. 28, 1915, at the age of 67 years, 4 months and 15 days.

Besides the husband and children, two sisters are left, Mrs. Jane Moorhead of California, and Mrs. M. E. Hashaw of Grand Junction, Iowa, besides many friends.
