      14 Aug 1936, West Salem, IL

      Mrs. Anita Owen Libkie Yates, wife of the Rev. Earl U. Yates, superintendent of the Carbondale (IL) District, died at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, August 14. She had suffered from tuberculosis for the past five years.

      Mrs. Yates was born in West Salem, IL, in 1897, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert J. Libkie. She and Mr. Yates were married in 1914. Surviving Mrs. Yates are her husband, her parents, and two daughters. Together they served the following charges: Luka, Allendale, Pinkstaff, Alton-Grace, Gillespie, St. Paul's of East St. Louis, and Harrisburg.

      Mrs. Yates was confirmed in the Moravian Church and entered the Methodist Episcopal Church at the time of her marriage. Funeral services were held in the Moravian church at West Salem, IL, with Dr. C. C. Hall in charge. He was assisted by: Dr. C. L. Peterson, the Revs. C. R. Yost, S. A. Magill, N. C. Henderson, F.E. Harris, W. E. Bennett, and W. L; Rhine, pastor of the Moravian Church at West Salem.

      Funeral services for Mrs. Earl U. Yates were held at the Moravian church at eleven Monday morning. The funeral was attended by fifty ministers of the Southern Illinois Methodist conference and more than thirty ministers' wives and many other out-of-town relatives and friends besides local friends of the families. Rev. John R. Hoesman, the former pastor of the Moravian church, now of Ephraim, WI, gave the prayer at the funeral home. Methodist ministers served as pall bearers and carried the body from the funeral home to the church less than a half block away. Twenty-six ministers' wives were flower bearers, many of them carrying two floral tributes. Rev. C. C. Hall, District Supt. of Centralia district presided and paid a high tribute to the Moravian church, the home church of Mrs. Yates., for its early influence on Methodism. The Methodist conference male quartette rendered several beautiful selections. Mrs. Yates' pastor, Rev. N. C. Henderson of the Methodist church of Marion, gave the prayer. Rev. William Maurer, local Moravian pastor, read the Old Scripture lesson and Rev. L. A. Magill of Harrisburg read the New Scripture lesson. Pres. C. R. Yost of McKendree College read the obituary. Rev. C. L. Peterson, Dist. Supt. of East St. Louis district, spoke in complimentary terms of the work of Rev. and Mrs. Yates in the various charges they have served in the past seventeen years and congratulated the parents and community for rearing a girl like Mrs. Yates. Rev. F. E. Harris, Dist. Supt. of Olney district, delivered the short but pointed funeral oration. At the grave in the Moravian cemetery the ministers and wives encircled the tomb and sang a number as a last tribute of respect. Rev. W. E, Bennett of St. Paul's Church, East St. Louis, read the commitment service and the benediction was pronounced by Rev. W. L. Rhein, local pastor of the Methodist church.
