“Alamo News” -- It is with sadness we chronicle the death or our friend, Mrs. Sallie Ammerman, having an acquaintance and living as neighbor for 38 years or more. Knowing her many good traits of character as I do, makes this a sad duty for me to do. We know how she will be missed in the social circle and the church. She was ever ready to do some charitable act for the poor or unfortunate.  She was a tender-hearted woman,  yet strong where there was distress, and could enjoy a social evening with the young people as well as with the old. Her home was always open to all her friends and they all knew how to appreciate her hospitality. The loss is great to her family, her four sons, Elbert, George, Will and Wilfred also her daughter, Mrs. Laura Burns will miss her kindly face when they visit the old homestead. But the husband and father and daughters, Stella and Gladys how lonely the days and evenings will be to them. The great silent rooms will seem so empty without her presence and when the evening comes and all are about the pleasant fireside her voice cannot be heard in the old familiar songs she loved. Yet there is a hope held out to you, dear friends, one in which you can meet the wife and mother, and around the white throne all can sing songs of rejoicing. Mrs. Ammerman was born in ’45 in Brown Township, Ind. She was married to John Ammerman in the year ’63.  She leaves a husband and four sons and three daughtesr to mourn her loss. She was always troubled with asthma and in the last year her health seemed to fall fast. Her last sickness was sciatic rheumatism.  Her suffering was severe, but she bore it all patiently and was resigned to her fate, bidding her children good bye and passing away as if going to sleep. The funeral was held at the Christian Church, Rev. Mooreman of the Waveland Christian Church, delivering the funeral sermon to a large concourse of friends, after which the corpse was taken to Oak Hill Cemetery where it was nicely laid to rest. - kbz

Sallie J. Owens, wife of John Ammerman, died at the family residence near Alamo November 15, 1900, after a brief illness with sciatic rheumatism and complications. The funeral services were conducted at the Christian Church in Alamo Saturday morning and the interment was at Oak Hill.  She was born April 8, 1845, and married November 24, 1864. Eight children were born, five boys and three girls. All survive, excepting one son, and were present at the bedside of the beloved mother who realized the approaching end and expressed her willingness to go. For many years she had been a consistent member of the Christian Church and died with full faith in her Redeemer.  Her life was full of energy and devoted to the maintenance and care of her family. She did “with her might what her hands found to do” and the ministrations of the loving wife and mother will be sadly missed in their saddened home. Three children are still at home to comfort the bereaved husband and continue the family life. -s
