      Narcissus Landiss, daughter of Joseph and Edline Landiss, was born Aug. 8, 1866, in Crawford County, Ind. She departed this life Oct. 18, 1926 at her home in West Salem, IL. at the age of 60 years, 2 months and 10 days. On January 27, 1888 she was united in marriage to John R. Yates, and to this union six children were horn, Aubrey L. Yates of Seymour, Ind.; Rev. Earl of Gillespie, IL. Mrs. Chas. Blakney of South Bend, Ind.; Mrs. James Strine and Mrs. Roy Gaddy of West Salem, IL. One daughter, Ruth, preceded her in death on Aug. 12, 1905.

      At an early age she united with the Presbyterian Church at Grantsburg, Ind., and at the time of her death was a Member of the M. E. church of West Salem, IL. Because of her failing condition of health she had been unable to attend church for several years. She awaits on the other shore the arrival of her husband, five living children, one sister, Mrs. Luther Benham, of Princeton, IN., besides a host of friends for her friends could be counted only by her acquaintances.

      One of her last wishes was to thank everyone for kindness shown her and for flowers sent during her last illness. The funeral services were held at the M. E. church Wednesday afternoon conducted by Rev. G. H. Billings, and burial was made on the Family lot of the Moravian cemetery.
