DIED In Bellevue Tuesday, July5th, 1904, Mathilda Louise Boutte, wife of Eugene Martel – deceased – aged 86 years, 7 months and 6 days.
Mrs. Martel was one of our oldest and most respected citizens and up to the time of her death devoted herself to seeing that the sick and needy of her acquaintances received all the attentions needed; and when she took sick there was no none who would not do anything in their power to arrest her pains or sufferings. She led a Christian life and was very devoted to her seven children, all who survive her, towit: Mrs Jules Boutte, Mrs. A. Pierrotti, B.E., Steven and Charles Martel, Mrs. D. Sittig and Mrs. Garland Peck. In the ante-bellum days when true hearts were tried to their utmost, she was always one of the first to give a helping hand to the aid of the followers of the lost cause, and whenever a sick or wounded soldier was anywhere around it wwas her greatest pleasure to see that he was tended to and wanted for naught. She leaves behind to mourn her loss, besides her seven children, who will still do honor to her name in the glorious future; and if ever there was a kingdom prepared for a mortal being, she for one to-day sits on the ethernal throne, where troubles and vicissitudes are not known there she will ever keep an uneering eye on her loved ones left behind.
She is buried in the Carron graveyard. (Contributed by Richard "Dick" LeDoux)
