Born In Missouri In 1843, But Lived Here Years
Mrs. Mary M. Fath, widow of John Fath, a highly respected resident of this and the Coffeen community for many years, died at the Hillsboro hospital Friday evening at six o'clock. She had been in failing health for several months, but was seriously ill only a little more than a week. Hardening of the arteries and complications caused her death. She was a patient in the hospital about a week.

Funeral services were held at Coffeen at the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon at two o'clock with Rev. J. C. Sills officiating. Burial was made in McDavid's Point cemetery.

Was Eighty-five
Mrs. Fath was 85 years, 2 month and 25 day old at the time of her death. Her maiden name was Mary Martha Nugent and she was a daughter of John and Ruth ( Eccles) Nugent. Born in Perry county, Missouri, near Cape Girardeau, on June 7, 1843, she spent her childhood and early young womanhood in that community. On November 2, 1859 she was married to John Fath at Perryville, Missouri, and the following year they came to Illinois and settled on a farm in this community. For many years they lived on a farm about half way between Hillsboro and Coffeen, and it was there that they reared their family. After the death of Mr. Fath on January 10, 1914, Mrs. Fath moved into Coffeen, to spend her declining years. Her son, Eugene L. Fath, lives on the home place at present.

Mother Of Ten
Mrs. Fath was the mother of ten children, three of whom preceded her in death. Two sons, John and Guy died in young manhood, and a daughter, Ida Belle, died in infancy.

Lentz of Hillsboro; Maude, wife of Porter May of Staunton; Ethel, wife of Mancil Joyce, and Eugene L. Fath, both of this community. One brother, Henry N. Nugent of Farmington, Missouri, is the last member of a large of brothers and sisters. Thirteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren are other surviving relatives.

Mrs. Fath was a member of the Hillsboro Presbyterian church for many years. She was converted some forty years ago while reading the first verse of the eighth chapter of Romans and, at her request this was used as her funeral text.
