MARTHA MARIE ORROCK CALLED TO HER REWARD ~ Funeral Services Will be Held in First Ward Friday Afternoon. - Mrs. Martha Marie Orrock, wife of the late W.C.B. Orrock, passed away quietly at her home here at about 7:30 Monday Morning. Although she had not been well for a long time, her condition became suddenly worse only about half an hour before her death. Martha Marie Orrock was born at Randus, Denmark, September 15, 1864, a daughter of Jens Christian and Martha Marie Outzen. With her parents, two brothers and six sisters she immigrated to Utah in 1870. The family made their home in Parowan for nearly three years, moving from Parowan to Richfield, where Mrs. Orrock has lived ever since. She was married to John Ogden December 6, 1882, and to this union were born two children, Mrs. Walter Hansen and Lester Ogden. Her husband, John Ogden, passed away in 1887. In 1889 she married the late W.C.B. Orrock, and to them were born four children, Eugene Orrock of Ely, Nevada, Mrs. J.I. Curtis of Richfield, Mrs. H.L. Vorhees of Manti and Mrs. A.D. Anderson of Richfield. All of her sons and daughters survive, together with twenty-one grandchildren, one brother, Parley Outzen, and two sisters, Mrs. Jessie Nielson of Richfield and Mrs. Augusta Smith of Snowflake, Arizona. Although Mrs. Orrock's health has been poor for years she has been so far as possible an active, and always a faithful church member. As a mother she has reared not only her own children, but seven children of W.C.B. Orrock, by a former marriage, and two of her grandchildren who were left without a mother eight years ago. Funeral services will be held at 2:30 Friday afternoon in the First ward chapel.
