The Mount Ayr Record-News, August, 1956

OBITUARY.

Mary Evaline, daughter of Hosea and Rachel LONG was born Sept 2, 1867 near Fairfield, Iowa and passed away August 29 1956 at her home in Mount Ayr, at the age of 88 years, 11 months, and 29 days.

She came with her parents to Ringgold County in 1882 and with the exception of a few years in North Dakota and Humeston, Iowa her entire life was spent in Ringgold County. On June 28, 1887 she was united in married to Alpha L. SPENCER. To this union were born seven children--3 sons and four daughters: Cecil Henry, of Des Moines; Edward Merritt, of Fresno, Calif.; Percy Leroy and girls, Mrs. Marie [Mrs. Howard] KIPPER, of Des Moines, IA; Mrs. Mamie [Mrs. Charles] HOOVER, of Mount Ayr, Iowa; Mrs. Madge [Mrs. Reed] SPONSLER, of Humeston, Iowa; and, Mrs. Mildred [Mrs. Robert] STEVENSON, of Colo, IA. Early in life, she united with the Delphos Christian Church and was a loyal worker. Later she transferred her membership to the Mount Ayr Christian Church and continued a faithful Christian until the last. Her long, useful life, devoted to good deeds and loving service to her family will ever be an inspiration to all her loved ones. Her continued interest in life and in her many friends and relatives and her uncomplaining acceptance of restricted personal activities during the past several years have made her home a favorite stopping place for many. The periods of companionship shared with her will always remain precious memories of those who knew and loved her, as will her sincere appreciation of any act or deed of thoughtfulness shown her.
