Taken from Allen County Democrat

In Lima, Margaret E.,wife of Rev A R KREBS, in the 59th year of her age.
She had suffered for several years with dropsieal affection of the heart,and
for more than five months had been confined to her room and in a great
measure, helpless.
She was born in Green Village,Franklin Co,Penn. She expereniced religion and
united with the M E Church at the age of 12,of which she remained a faithful
and esteemed member till death.
She was united in marriage to Rev A.R.Krebs April 27,1830,with whom she
lived happily for almost 40 years. She was a most estimable wife,
affectionate mother, kind neighbor and consistant christian.
During her long sickness, she maintained a wonderful patience, and had a
constant reallzation of the presence of her Saviour, causing her at times to
shout aloud for joy.
She had a great desire to hear from her sister that she had not seen for
more than 20 years.She felt that she could not die before hearing from her.
How remarkable the coiseidence!
Just three hours before she died her husband took from the post-office and
read to his dying companion the long desired letter,containing also her
sister's photograph. She heard the letter read, looked at and kissed the
picture and said "I am now satisifed", and was in the spirit world in less
than three hours thereafter.
