Mrs. I. F. Streepy Death
Was Almost 63 - Lived in County Many Years
The death of Mrs. I. F. Streepy occurred Sunday evening at the late home north of Cincinnati, aged 63 years. She was born in Ohio, June 30, 1843, and with her parents came to this state settling near Cincinnati. Her maiden name was Reynolds. She was married to Isaac Streepy, March 9, 1882. After his return from the war they lived on a farm near Cincinnati and later moved onto the place which was her home at the time of her death. Five sons and two daughters were born to them, all but one son now living in this county. The children had a mother who means much to them and her memory will be held sacred by them, she having lived a christian life and exerted an influence over the family that has been for good. She was a member of the Methodist church, held in the highest regard by those who were associated with her. The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon from the late home, conducted by Rev. H. Collier, and interment was at Evergreen cemetery, north of Cincinnati.
