Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 23, 1827, England
Death: Jun. 1, 1918
Spokane County
Washington, USA

Mrs Martha Dechenne, mother of the Dechenne boys of this vicinity, died in Spokane last Saturday at the home of her daughter, aged 90 years 11 months and 9 days. Funeral services were held in Spokane and the body brought to Edwall Monday where burial took place in the Edwall Cemetery. Martha Greene was born in Yorkshire, England, June 23, 1827. She came to America when three years of age and resided in Pennsylvania until her marriage to Julian Dechenne, a native of France, in 1848. The couple then removed to Southern Illinois where they resided until 1890. The husband passed away in 1887 and in 1890 the widow came to Washington with her family settling in this vicinity and she has resided here and near here since. Eleven children were born to the union, seven of whom survive. They are: Adolph of Hillyard, Lester of Sprague, Mrs John Brown of Heppner, OR, Mrs Henry Schneider of Spokane, Albert of Medical Lake, Emil of Sprague and Walter of Edwall. Mrs Dechenne has been in failing health for some years and several paralytic strokes of recent date hastened the end. She was one of the oldest persons living in this vicinity and was known to many in Sprague having resided here with her sons a good share of the time in recent years." (Sprague Advocate: 6-07-1918)
