Death: Nov. 9, 1957

Mrs Mary Anderson - Mary Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel and Margaret (Hepburn) Meharg was born December 14, 1868 at Kankakee, Illinois. She died at her home, 316 East Eighth St, Russell, KS on November 9, 1957, Saturday evening at 8 pm. Her age was 88 years, 10 months and 26 days.
In 1873 she came with her parents to Kansas. The family settled in Russell County and she has been a resident of Russell since that year. She attended school, grew to womanhood on the farm home of the Shannon Community. On November 27 1887 she was united in marriage to Christopher Anderson. There were eight children born to this marriage; one son, Nelson, preceded her in death. These are but facts or statistics in the life of Mrs Anderson. But to her children, grandchildren, sisters, neighbors and friends, her life does not have to be eulogized. Along with rearing a large family through those many years of tribulations with which so many of these pioneer mothers contended with, she was always ready to extend a helping hand to anyone that was hungry or in distress. As a practical nurse she cared for a lot of older people in her home before the time of Nursing Homes.
So to treasure her memory are: her children, Mrs Tora Rock, Navarre Kan; Mrs Susie Luckenbough, Abilene Kan; Chris Anderson, Ponca City Okla; Arnie Anderson, Russell Kan; Tom Anderson, Bunker Hill, Kan; Fred Anderson, Russell, Kan; John Anderson, address not known at this time. There are 12 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild.
