OBITUARY - HALLENE MARIE (SLACK) COMBS

The community has lost a well known and highly esteemed woman in the passing of Mrs. Dewey COMBS, who on Wednesday evening, Mar 22 answered the final summons of death, following an illness of long duration. In recent months she was forced to forego all activities, being confined to her home or hospital. On Tuesday March 21 March while returning from Marion, South Dakota, where her husband had taken her to consult a specialist, she lapsed into an unconscious condition from which she never rallied.

Hallene Marie, daughter of Jack and Viva SLACK was born in Taylor County May 30, 1898 and passed away at the Municipal Hospital in Clarinda March 22, 1950 at the age of 51 years, 9 months, and 22 days.

She received her education in the Taylor County schools and later taught for several years in the rural schools of the county. Her entire life was spent in Taylor County.

On December 16, 1919, she was married to Dewey COMBS and they established their home in the vicinity where they both were reared. Twenty-four years ago they moved to their present home. Two sons were born to this union; Estel D. and Lyle E. both of New Market. She is survived by her husband, the two sons and their wives, two grandsons Michael and Wayne; a brother George SLACK of New Market; her step-mother Mrs. Nellie SLACK of Tingley and many other relatives.

Mrs. COMBS was preceded in death by her parents and a brother Luke who died in infancy.

Casketbearers for the service were Donald BASHOR, Dalphon BASHOR, Alvin McALPIN, Gerald McALPIN, Neil COMBS and Glen SPRINGS while those who care for the flowers were Helen BASHOR, Barbara HATFIELD, Barbara VanALSTINE and Virginia WILLIAMSON. The funeral was in charge of Rev. Clarence MOORE at the New Market Methodist Church, burial was in the Dallas Cemetery. The music at the church was by Charles BASHOR as soloist and Mary ANDERSON as pianist.

NOTE: G. Dewey COMBS was born in 1899 and died in 1975 with interment at Dallas Center Cemetery.
