      Barbara Ann Ewell Sheffer
      Birth: Oct. 24, 1842
      Death: Apr. 12, 1914

      Mrs. Barbara Ann Sheffer died suddenly at the home of her daughter, Mrs. T. G. Ryther, in Bellingham Sunday afternoon. Mrs. Sheffer had been in her usual health and on Sunday morning had taken advantage of the beautiful Easter day to enjoy a long walk. Returning to her daughter's home she ate lunch and went to her room. Soon after, Mrs. Ryther was attracted to the room and found her mother in a dying condition.

      Mrs. Sheffer was 71 years and six months old. With her husband, Nicholas Vance Sheffer, to whom she was married forty-six years ago, she came to Bellingham from Missouri in the early days, they being among the first settlers in that part of the county. Mr. Sheffer died about five years ago. Mrs. Sheffer was of very gentle and uncomplaining disposition, and had many friends, in Lynden where she resided for several years, and in Bellingham and other parts of the county. She was the mother of twelve children, four of whom survive her. They are Mrs. Ryther, of Bellingham, Mrs. May Lang, of Port Townsend, Bert Sheffer and Joe Davis, both living in Idaho. The funeral services were held at the Methodist church in Lynden on Tuesday afternoon, the Rev. Herbert Jones officiating. Interment was in Lynden cemetery beside the bodies of her husband and daughter, Nicholas Vance Sheffer and Mrs. R. E. Hawley.
