Aged 34 years 4 months 21 days. Wife of Joseph Fontenrose

THE AMADOR DISPATCH: Jackson, CA, 03 November 1894, page 2

In Jackson, October 27th, 1894, Mrs. Nellie Fontenrose, a native of California, aged 36 years.

Deceased was the wife of Deputy Sheriff Joseph Fontenrose, and was a most estimable and noble woman, beloved by all who knew her. She was kind, generous and wherever she went carried with her a ray of social sunshine which dispelled every vestige of gloom as the great sun of the universe drives away the dampening dews that fall by night.

Indeed, none could know her but to love her, and her memory will be ever cherished by all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. She was a faithful, loving wife, a doating, noble mother, and a kind, true friend, and her death cast a deep canopy of gloom over our entire community.

The deceased was a Miss Mahoney and belonged to the much respected family of that name in Sutter Creek, in which place her remains were buried last Sunday in accordance with the rites of the Catholic Church, of which she was a devoted members. Besides her large circle of friends and other relatives, she leaves a husband and two children - a daughter and son of tender years - whose inconsolable grief, is prayfully sympathized with by every member of our community.
