Obituary of Mary Minteer Manville, The Bayard Advocate, Thursday, February 1, 1912, Page 1, Column 1

___Word came Friday morning from Iowa City that Mrs. Manville had passed away at five o'clock that morning.
___Though the friends here had expected the message, knowing that there was no medical aid that could help and that the frail body could not withstand the severe suffering, still such messages always bring a shock.
___Mrs. Manville went to Iowa City some months ago to receive treatment for her eye. In September one eye was removed. Though the other was severely afflicted the sight was not entirely gone until the last. She had been a sufferer for about ten years with diabetes and the past five years the disease had been in a more aggravated form. The last few weeks of her life the pain was most intense and the whole system was poisoned with the disease.
___The body was brought back Saturday and taken to her own home that she loved so well. The funeral service was held Sunday at the Methodist church conducted by the Rev. Mr. Parther of Bagley, assisted by Rev. Frank Perry.
___Following is the obituary that was given at the last services.
___Mary Minteer was born in Mt Vernon, Ohio, March 23, 1835 and died at the home of her daughter in Iowa City,, January 26, 1912, at the ripe age of 76 years, 10 months and 3 days.
___She came to Iowa county in 1853 and was married to Lyman B. Manville at Sigourney in 1857. They became the worthy parents of seven children, three sons and four daughters, all of whom mourn a mother's departure and five of whom are present two sons and three daughters.
___The family moved to Guthrie county in 1875 and settled on the farm 2 miles south west of Bayard where they remained until moving into town some time before the death of the husband more than five years ago.
___Sister Manville was converted when twenty years of age, and united with the Methodist church of which she was a faithful member for more than fifty-six years. She was a charter member of the local Methodist church and has proven her love for the same by years of devotion. The closing months of her life were filled with much suffering and pain but were borne with Christian fortitude.
___She is survived by one brother who could not be present. A kind friend, a loving mother, a Christian sister has answered to the silent summons but the world is better for her life and service and influence.
___The children are O.R. of Breckenridge, Missouri, who spent two weeks with his mother at Iowa City last fall, C. W., Mrs. T. F. Corrigan and Mrs. John Brideson, who have been near by and given their mother loving care during her declining years, Mrs. Lottie Chapman of Ratoon, New Mexico, who came a few weeks ago to see her mother, Mrs. Emma Richards and Bert Manville of Iowa City who did all possible to ease their mother's last days and who came Saturday with the remains.
