Etta Riley Rushton Masten
Birth: Aug. 8, 1895
Hendricks County
Indiana, USA
Death: May 2, 1981
Hendricks County
Indiana, USA

Wife of Earl H. Masten.

My parents were friends of the Mastens. Their son, Lowell, lived in Ohio and couldn't visit his parents grave as often as he would like, so for years he paid my mother to put flowers on her grave. One year the check didn't come, so we assumed he had passed away. That's been several years ago. Mom passed away last year and so far I've managed to keep up the tradition. I know Mom would have wanted it that way.

Her obituary from the May 6, 1981 Brownsburg Guide:

Mrs. Etta Riley (Rushton) Masten, 85, RR1 Clayton, died Saturday May 2 at Tendercare Nursing Home, Danville. Born in the Clayton area on August 8, 1895, she ws the daughter of Thomas and Dorothy (Riley) Rushton. The Clayton High School graduate was married to Earl Masten on August 19, 1913. He died June 21, 1978. Devoted to her family, Mrs. Masten wrote poetry. She was a member of the Belleville United Methodist Church and the Cartersburg Order of the Eastern Star. Survivors include a son, Lowell Masten, Westerville, Ohio; two grandchildren, Craig Masten and Carol Milne-Smith; and two grandchildren, Matthew and Amy. Rev Martin Engle officiated at the funeral Tuesday morning, May 5 at Weaver Funeral Home, Clayton. Interment was in Center Valley Cemetery, south of Belleville.
