Margaret Belle "Maggie" Hupp, eleventh child of Aaron and Margaret Anna
(Redlingshafer) Hupp, is buried in Salem Cemetery Lot. No. 48 (Lot No.
41 under what apparently was the cemetery's original numbering system)
with her parents and five siblings.
Maggie Belle, daughter of Aaron and Margaret Hupp, was born Sept. 17,
1878, in Benton township, Lucas county, Iowa, and passed away June 18,
1939, after an extended illness.
She was converted and united with the Mt. Carmel church in 1893. Later
she transferred her membership to the Salem M.E. church. She was
active in the church, serving as Sunday school teacher and superintendent
both at Mt. Carmel and Salem.
A lover of boys and girls, she found great joy in working with them. When
the Salem class was disbanded she ecame a member of the Methodist
church in Chariton. For several years Maggie served very successfully
as a public school teacher. The years of fellowship with Christ had so
enriched her spirit that she was enabled to meet the sufferings and
disappointments of a long illness with faith undimmed. She ever
manifested great appreciation for every kind act of her many friends.
The sufferings of recent months had, through Christ's grace, assured her
of an abundant entrance into His eternal kingdom.
She is survived by five sisters, Mrs. Elizabeth VanGilder, of Springfield,
Ill., who was unable to be present on account of illness, and Lucinda,
Hannah, Susie A., and Sarah, who with two brothers, David and Otto,
reside at home. She was preceded in death by her parents and four
Funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon at the Salem
church by a former pastor and long time friend of the family, the Rev.
E.L. Stone, of Burlington, assisted by the Rev. Paul Hicks, of Chariton.
Her requests as to sermon and songs were fully met. Interment
was in Salem cemetery.
"When our loved ones leave us there need be no shadows; If their
faith is firmly fixed in Jesus as their Lord. For they go to be with Him
who died to save them; To be with the One whom they have long
