Mrs. Orville Grant Burdick
"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 149, No 7, p 117, Aug. 28, 1950.
Martha Lucetta Davis was born in Wells, Minn., on June 15, 1872, and died in Denver, Colo., July 11, 1950.
When a small child, she moved with the family to North Loup, Neb., where she met and later married Orville G. Burdick on May 29, 1890. To this union were born seven children, of whom three survive. They are: Edwin, Grant, and Mrs. Grace Burdick White.
Her husband, Orville, preceded her in death in November, 1944. Also surviving are two sisters: Mrs. Maud Davis and Mrs. Minnie Davis, one brother, Frank, all of Denver, and five grandchildren.
While in Nebraska, she was baptized, and united with the North Loup seventh Day Baptist Church. After moving to Denver, she helped with the organization of the Church there, and was one of the charter members. She helped also to organize the Ladies' Aid Society of the Church, acting as president for fifteen years, and at the time of her death was its treasurer.
During the last two years of her life she has been very active in two other Denver organizations, the Woodbury Club, which she served as president, and the National Annuity League.
It is interesting to note that during her childhood, "Mattie," as she was lovingly called by her family and friends, made two covered wagon trips from North Loup to Boulder, one in the 1890's and one in 1911.
As she lay suffering for two weeks prior to her death, she was heard by her family to utter many times, "Have thine own way, Lord." What a wonderful testimony to leave for those who must live on after her. F. D. S.
