~ FINAL SUMMONS TO GOOD WOMAN ~
MRS. GEORGE E. DYE
PASSED AWAY SUNDAY
Deceased Came to Nemaha County Shortly After Her Marriage in 1866 and Had Lived Here Ever Since
Funeral Held Monday Afternoon.
Mrs. Mary E. Dye, who passed away at her home in Auburn last Sunday was so well known throughout this community, and had such a wide circle of friends, that there are many to mourn her passing and share the sorrow that has come to her bereaved children. She was in every sense a good woman; beloved for her beautiful character, her true womanly qualities and all those traits that give to womanhood its influence for all that is good in life.
Mary E. Dye, eldest daughter of Willard and Sarah Grant, was born March 22, 1848 at Jefferson, Wisconsin. She was married to George E. Dye at Hebron, Wisconsin, April 12, 1886. Four years later they came to Nebraska and located in Nemaha county where they spent the greater part of their lives. Five children were born to them; Charles G., of Nemaha, Edith E., who died in June 1899, Emery G., of Omaha and Jessie and Blanche, with whom she had made her home since the death of her husband in 1916.
In 1916 Mr. and Mrs. Dye celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in Auburn and children, friends and neighbors helped them observe that happy event.
As a pioneer woman, Mrs. Dye had experienced many hardships, which she met and overcame with the courage and faith so necessary to womanhood in those days.
Because of her sunny disposition and her fine strength of character, her home was a place where her children and friends loved to gather. She was a member of St. Paulís Lutheran church and her life was spent in doing the things that can be done only by one of strong Christian character and making home and community better because of her influence.
She leaves to mourn her passing, two sons, Charles and Emery; her daughters, Jessie and Blanche; four grandchildren; Alton, Dorothy, George and Marjorie Dye, all of Omaha. Two sisters also survive her, Mrs. Ellen Miner of Auburn and Mrs. Martha Palmer of Stella and two brothers, Liberty F. Grant of Auburn and Willard J. Grant of Spokane, Washington.
Reverend Swan at St. Paulís Lutheran church in Auburn conducted the funeral services at 2:00 oíclock Monday afternoon. There was a large attendance of friends and many beautiful flowers. At the conclusion of the services the interment was made in the Howe cemetery beside the graves of her husband and daughter who preceded her.
