The Marion Sentinel Thursday September 10, 1908
Amelia M. Bunting, wife of J.M. Huffman, died at 6:30 A.M., Sept. 3rd, 1908, at her home in Marion, after a protracted illness. She was the eldest daughter of John and Mary Edwards Bunting and the third of ten children, born in Zanesville, Ohio, Sept. 29th, 1834. She grew to young womanhood in her native stated, and at the age of twenty-two was married June 15, 1856 to J.M. Huffman, whom she had known from childhood. With her husband, parents and brothers and sisters she removed in the autumn of 1856 to a pioneer home near Marion, Iowa, and did her share in conquering a new country. She was converted and joined the Baptist church at an early age, and her faith increased with her years. She was ever faithful to her church relations, to her Master and friends. She was the mother of six daughters and one son, who preceded her to the Heavenly home. Her daughters are Mrs. Samuel Miller, Jr., Mrs. Morris Howe, Mrs. Charles Nash, of this vicinity, Mrs. Howard Marshall, of Minneapolis, and Misses Lenna and Zula, the last two of which were near to minister to her in loving attentions in her last illness. Besides her husband and children she leaves fifteen grandchildren and three great grandchildren, four sisters and two brothers, viz: Mrs. E. Whitcomb, Mrs. Milas Webb, Mrs. N.H. White, Mrs. Wm. E. Jones, Messrs. M.E. Bunting and C. Bunting and many more distant relatives and friends to mourn the loss of a kind, loving and devoted one. She has earned the rich reward bestowed upon her.
The funeral services were held at the Baptist church Saturday, Sept. 5th, at 2:30 P.M., conducted by the pastor Rev. H.F. McDonald, assisted by Rev. F.H. Sanderson, of the M.E. church. The loved form was laid to rest in Oak Shade cemetery.
"Blessed are the dead that died in the Lord
They rest from their Labors and their works do follow them."

J.M. Huffman and family wish to express their sincere thanks and appreciation of the kind attentions and helpful words and services so constantly rendered during the illness and death of their beloved wife and mother.
