We are once more called upon to chronicle the death of a noble and true woman, the same having occurred on Thursday, December 10, 1903, at the family home in this city.
Miss Mary Frieden was born in Clayton county November 14, 1858, where she spent her girlhood days. She was of a bright, sunny disposition, a lovable nature and made friends by the score, all of whom will regret to learn of her passing to the other shore.
In the year 1880 she was married to Frank Bohanan, and to this union five children, four daughters and one son, were born, the latter having preceeded the mother in death some years ago.
In the year 1900 Mrs. Bohanan was attacked with heart trouble, and has been a sufferer from the disease since that time, the best of medical attention and careful nursing only proved to allay the ravages of the disease and up to within three weeks ago she was able to be about the house and perform the duties of her household. At the time she was siezed with a more severe attack than its predecessors, which finally culminated in her death on the above date.
Mrs. Bohanan was a true wife, a loving mother and a kind neighbor. She loved her home and it was her constant endeavor to make it bright and cheerful. She was a woman loved and respected by all who knew her and leaves a host of friends who will cherish her memory and remember the kind and loving acts performed by her during her life.
The funeral services were held from the home Sunday, December 13, conducted by Rev. Stoeckman of the German Baptist church. The remains were then taken to the Apostolic church where services were conducted by Rev. Wenger and interment was made in the cemetery there. Besides the immediate family of a husband and four daughters, many friends will grieve the loss of a truly good woman.
