Eliza Salina White Platner
December 12, 1866–January 18, 1899

January 18th, 1899, at her home in Center Junction Iowa, Eliza Salina (White) Platner passed from earth to her eternal home. She was born at Scotch Grove, Iowa, December 12, 1866. At the age of fifteen she professed her faith in Christ and united with the United Presbyterian church at Scotch Grove. She was married Oct. 24th, 1888, to Geo. G. Platner, which was indeed a happy union. Quiet and retired she won the respect and admiration of all who knew her. Though not demonstrative, she was exceedingly sympathetic. She was a cheerful and unassuming Christian. Except when illness prevented, she was always in her place in the Lord’s house. She died of pneumonia, after an illness of five days, and was laid to rest in the cemetery at Scotch Grove. At the time of her death she was a member of the United Presbyterian congregation in Wyoming.
Her husband and two children, Inez and G. Robert, survive her. To them and the wide circle of friends, we say weep not as those who have no hope. Be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of Man cometh.
