Claimed by Death - March 22, 1926
Mrs. Roy Houts
The community was shocked to learn of the sudden death of Mrs. Roy Houts, on Monday of this week, following a short illness, death being caused by blood poisoning. All that medical skill and loving hands could do was of no avail. Mrs. Houts was all that is implied in true womanhood, and took great delight in her home and was always a friend that could be depended upon at all times. Called in young womanhood she leaves a host of relatives and friends to mourn, but she leaves an example that will spread its influence as the years go on.
Mable Olive Athen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Athen, was born October 24, 1891, and died on March 22, 1926, aged 34 years, 4 months and 28 days. She was educated in her home country school, the Hamburg high school and the Shenandoah Normal. She united with the Lone Chapel Christian church on January 1, 1902 and was a member until death. She was always active in church work and ready to do any duty for the betterment of the community.
She was united in marriage on March 11, 1918 to LeRoy Houts, who with two sons, Duane LeRoy and James Lyle, survive. She leaves to mourn her departure besides her husband and family, her father and mother, one sister, Mrs. Daisey Liess, and one brother, Carl Athen, besides a host of relatives and friends. Funeral services were held at the Mt. Olive church on Wednesday afternoon, conducted by the Rev. M. F. Brower of Savannah, Mo., assisted by the Revs. E. L. Stone and John Zuck and interment was made in the cemetery at that place.
