HI-LINE WEEKLY, Hingham, MT, March 19, 1942
Mrs. Archie Acton who passed into the Great Beyond last Friday forenoon, was buried Monday afternoon in the Hingham Union cemetery, following funeral rites conducted at Hingham Lutheran church at which Rev. Milo Lee officiated.
Pallbearers were Gordon and Donald Twedt, Robert and Gene Petrick, Irwin and Loren Brandt, all young men of this community.
In the discourse of the funeral text taken from Rev. 14:13, Rev. Lee eulogized the Christian character of the departed one, whose faith, despite four years of affliction, never faltered, as the crocheted picture of the Institution of the Lord's Supper, which adorns the church wall bears her zeal in serving even when paralysis forced her to discontinue her more active service.
Mrs. Acton was constantly appreciative of all kindliness in word or deed shown during her long illness. She was especially devoted to her dear husband and mother who seldom left her bedside.
Minnie (Rambo) Acton was born February 9, 1887, near Eureka Spring, Arkansas, daughter of Mrs. and Mrs. Oliver P. Rambo. While she was still very young she moved with her parents to southern Missouri where she grew to young womanhood. She attended school in Diamond and Carthage, Missouri. At the age of 19 years, she went to Knox, North Dakota, where she taught school until she moved to this community in 1909. She was one of the first women to take up residence south of Hingham. She taught school in several rural communities during the pioneering days.
On June 14, 1915, she was married to Archie Acton of Coeur d' Alene, Idaho, and they have made their home in this community continuously since that time.
