Mrs. J. S. Anderson Dies
Mary Alice, daughter of James Madison and Mrs. Martha C. Ricks Olive, was born in Madison County,Illinois,
January 16, 1852, and departed this life at her home in Hume, Missouri, on March 5, 1925, at the age of 63 years, 1 month, and 20 days.
When about eight years of age, she moved with her parents to Missouri, settling in Henry County. Here she remained about five years. While in Henry County, she made her confession in Christ as her personal savior and was buried with Him in Christian baptism.
In the year 1875, she moved to Bates County, Missouri, in which she lived till her death. On the eleventh day of November, 1895, she was married to John S. Anderson, when living ner Sprague, Missouri.
They then made their home on a farm a few miles east of Hume. To this union, one child was born, who is now Mrs. Minnie Remington of Hume.
One of the traits of her splendid Christian character is that she made no difference in her treatment of her daughter and the five stepchildren (who were her nieces and nephew) who grew to man and woman hood, a tribute to patient care of the only mother they ever knew.
Four years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Anderson moved from their farm to Hume where they have since resided.
She leaves to mourn her departure her husband, J. S. Anderson, her daughter, Minnie Remington of Hume, two grandchildren, Melvin and Jane Remington of Hume, one brother, William of Rich Hill, four sisters, Mrs. Charity Ashby of Foss, Oklahoma, Mrs. M. King, of Rich Hill, Mrs. Amy Porter of Parsons, Kansas, and Mrs. Elle Morelock of Salina, Kansas. Besides these, a number of other relatives and an innumerable host of friends.
Life's race well run,
Life' work well done,
Life's crown well worn,
Now comes rest.
Funeral services were held at the Christian church in Hume, Saturday, conducted by the pastor, L. V. Brown.
