Shortly after her marriage her health began to fail and upon the advice of her doctor that she must seek a change of climate for the benefit of her health, together with her husband they decided to locate in Colorado at Greeley, where their home was made during the remaining months of her life. While temporary relief in her health was noticed the Divine plan had chosen otherwise and on September 25th she was summoned by the angel of death to change this earthly home and clime for the celestial abode from which borders all diseases and sickness and sufferings are forever banished, and where perfect health is eternally enjoyed in that indescribable, unchangeable climate and home.
