OBITUARY

Catherine RICE was born in Benton county, Arkansas, November 15, 1843 and passed away at her home near Wolbach, Nebraska, July 20, 1934, at the age of 90 years, 8 months and 5 days. She was baptized in the Christian faith at the age of eight years and remained faithful during her long life. With her mother and sisters she moved to Newton county, Mo. In the spring of 1862 they moved to Davis county, Iowa and the same fall they went with an ox team to Johnson county, Nebraska where her mother homesteaded and the family endured the many hardships of the pioneers.

She joined the Methodist Church at Mt. Hope in Johnson county, Nebraska and later transferred her membership to Wolbach in 1904.

She was married to Alexander MARRS December 14, 1869. To this union were born two children, W. J. MARRS of Mount Ayr, Iowa and Maggie PORTER of Wolbach, Nebraska. Besides these children she leaves three step-children namely Catherine FITHIAN of Tangier, Okla; F. L. MARRS of Watonga, Okla.; and W. C. MARRS of Cook, Nebr., also a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as a host of friends.

"A loved ones voice is hushed in death,
A faithful heart is still.
A place is vacant by the hearth,
None other ere can fill.
Her precious words of hope and cheer,
Her tender loving care,
What sacred memories cluster here;
Around the vacant chair."

The sympathy of the community is extended to the family in their bereavement.

Mr. and Mrs. Walter PORTER, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. MARRS, Mr. and Mrs. W. C. MARRS, Mr. and Mrs. F. L. MARRS, Catherine FITHIAN.
