Nancy Jane Chumbley, daughter of Beryl Gene and Elizabeth Ann Embry, was born in Grundy County, Missouri, Feb. 23, 1866 and passed away at the age of 85 years, 3 months and 3 days.

On Sept. 13, 1885 she was united in marriage with Andrew Chumbley.

She was preceded in death by one daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth Todd.

She is survived by the husband, and four children, namely, Roy of Pasadena, Calif., Harry, of Trenton, Mo., Edna Liggett, of Collins, Ia. and Lula Beer at the home in Numa. Also ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Two grandchildren, Jim Hagethorn and Mrs. Edna Frogge being reared in the home by the grandparents.

She was affiliated with the Christian church in young life. She was deeply devoted to her family and always kind and thoughtful toward others.

The funeral was held Thursday afternoon, May 31 at the Numa Methodist church. Burial was in the Numa cemetery. Flower girls were Doris Olson, Mrs. Wayne Arbogast, and Dorothy Hibbs. Bert Arbogast, John King, James Arbogast, Tom Ross, Oral Large and Jim Hibbs were pallbearers. Rev. Vernon G. Goff, officiated.

We have not been able to find any pictures of Nancy. It has been said that she did not let anyone take her picture because she was afraid it would take her soul.

According to my mother, she had long hair that she would let the grandchildren brush for her. Like, Andy, I've been told she was also soft spoken and kind.
