Mrs. Lena Maroney Passed Suddenly

Was One of the Best Loved Women of the Post Oak Community

Post Oak, April 2--A dark shadow was cast over Post Oak Thursday night by the gloomy sings of death claiming for his own Mrs. Lean Maroney suddenly, as no one knew she was any way near death's door. Her death was due to heart failure. She had been in declining health the past three months.

She was born in Red River county near Detroit, February 8, 1866, moving with her parents to Lamar county when a small child and settling at Post Oak, where she grew up to womanhood.

She was married to W. L. Maroney and to their union were born six children, all being dead except two daughters.

The deceased is survived by her husband and two daughters, Mrs. [sic: Miss] Minnie Maroney of Detroit and Mrs. Mollie Phillips of Post Oak, also a little grand daughter, Lucille Nunnally, whom she was raising; one brother, Bud Finch, of Caney, and one sister, Mrs. Will Robinson of Hugo, Okla., who was unable to attend the funeral on account of sickness.

The deceased was a devoted member of the Protestant church having been a member the greater part of her life, taking a great part in Christian work and in the Sunday school, being the card teacher. Her face is missed by all who knew her as her daily walks proved what a life she lived. The home, the Sunday school, the church and the community miss her. All the whole community is in sympathy with the bereaved ones.

But cheer, grieved ones, for she know no aches or pains, but all is peace and rest. She is not dead but sleepeth that long peaceful sleep to arise in the resurrection. The remains were laid to rest here at 3 o'clock, a great host of her friends attending the funeral. Bro. Lee Turner conducted the services.
