Death Ends Long Suffering
Mrs. J. G. Fassett, sister of F. B. Shepley, passed away at St. Luke's hopsital, Spokane, Friday afternoon, December 4, after a lingering illness, suffering from creeping paralysis. The body was brought to Ritzville and funeral services were conducted from Haight's undertaking parlors Monday forenoon, Rev. H. S. Randall officiating. Mrs. V. A. Chargois and Miss Kathleen Hallin sang two duets. Burial was in the Ritzville cemetery.
Nellie Shepley was born in Bangor, Maine, August 1, 1851, and was 74 years, 4 months, and 3 days of age at the time of her death. While still a young girl she came with her parents to Minnesota. In 1870 she was united in marriage to Mr. John G. Fassett. To this union four children were born, three sons and one daughter, of whom two sons survive. They are Bert, still in Minnesota, and Harold S. of Prineville, Oregon.
Mr. Fassett passed away about 25 years ago. About eight years ago Mrs. Fassett moved to Bend, Oregon. Two years later she came to Ritzville where she remained at the home of her brother for some time until she was taken to St. Luke's hospital at Spokane four years ago last March. She has been confined at the hospital since that time, until she was released Friday from her affliction and passed quietly to the home beyond.
Thank you Sue Gardner for this transcription.
Although she is not listed in the cemetery plot listing, I assume she is buried near her brother in the family plot in section one. PWR 9/21/2011.
