Obituary - Mary Ann Dean

Mrs. Warren A. Peebles, who has been confined to her house since last fall, died Saturday afternoon, aged 77 years. Her funeral was attended on Tuesday at 2 p.m., in the Methodist church, the Rev. H. E. Davis officiating. Mrs. Peebles was one of tho oldest residents of this village, and was widely known. The last years of her life have been full of anxiety and cares. She had taken burdensome duties and weighty responsibilities upon herself in the care of grand-children that were motherless,and very dear to her heart, and has toiled unceasingly in their behalf, giving her best efforts for their comforts and future good. She was broad-minded and exhibited a remarkable spirit of forbearance and kindliness. No matter how wayword or careless others might become, the true spirit of parental affection was not wanting nor withheld in their behalf. She will be missed and mourned by those who cannot forget the self-denial and sacrificing spirit manifested so patiently in their welfare. She is survived by four sons, Dean, Leon, Rollin and Durant Peebles, and one daughter, to mourn the loss of an indulgent and loving parent. The sympathy of our community is extended to the surviving family thus bereft.
