Table Rock Argus, Apr. 14, 1910.
The funeral services of Mrs. Amanda J. Marble were held in the M. E. church on Friday afternoon conducted by Rev. P. C. Johnson of Tecumseh. There was a very large attendance of sorrowing friends at the service, some of the women societies of which Mrs. Marble was a member being represented by almost their entire membership, and there being many friends from other towns present, so that the seating capacity of the building would not hold all who desired to be present. The floral tributes were many and beautiful, a fitting testimonial to the deceased, for in life she dearly loved flowers and her greatest pleasure was in rearing and caring for them. Hr remains were laid to rest in the Table Rock cemetery.
Table Rock Argus, Apr. 7, 1910.
AMANDA J. MARBLE
Died Wednesday Evening at Her Home in This City.
A Life of Helpfulness to Others Ended.
Mrs. Amanda J. Marble died at her home in this city on Wednesday evening, April 6, at 9:30, after an illness of several years.
She was born February 28, 1846, in Tazwell county, Illinois, being a daughter of Elder Richard Linn, one of the pioneer ministers of Pawnee county. She came to Nebraska in 1865, and was united in marriage to Milton H. Marble October 31, 1872.
During all the years of her life in table Rock her influence has always been a force for the pure and beautiful; she loved her home and no self-sacrifice was too great for her to make to enhance its comfort and completeness, and yet she found time to give attention to public thought and necessities; for several years she was president of the Nebraska Woman's Suffrage association, and at its last meeting declined a re-election because of the condition of her health, and was vice president of the society at the time of her death; her work in this connection gave her a state wide acquaintance, and the mourning at her death is not confined to local limitations.
The funeral will be held in the M. E. church Friday, at 3:30 p.m., conducted by Rev. P. c. Johnson, of Tecumseh.
Every person who knew will sympathize with sorrowing husband and children in their bereavement, for all feel a personal loss, for her words of hope and comfort; her kindly act of friendship, and her helpfulness in times of need, will be missed by many.
