Caroline Weede, the daughter of Rev. N. C. and Jane Weede was born in Blairsville, Pennsylvania, September 9, 1842. She removed with her parents to La Prairie, Illinois in 1849. On February 7, 1865, she was married to Samuel Martin. After living some years in Illinois, they came to Iowa, and located on a farm in Warren county, near St. Charles. This was in 1872. Here their family was reared. In 1890 they moved to St. Charles, where they resided for eight years. They moved from St. Charles to Indianola in 1898, and this has since been their home.

Mrs. Martin passed away on Motherís Day Sabbath, May 14, 1916, in her seventy-fourth year.

She is survived by her husband, four sons and three daughters, as follows: Dr. J. T. Martin, Mt. Air, Indiana; S. A. Martin, Draper, South Dakota; Weede Martin, Indianola, Iowa; Dr. F. F. Martin, Roosevelt, Oklahoma; Mrs. H. F. Burns, Indianola, Iowa; Mrs. Irving L. Wright, Des Moines, Iowa; Lillie J. Martin, Waterloo, Iowa; and seven grandchildren.

Mr. and Mrs. Martin had the privilege of celebrating their golden wedding in February of last year, and at the same time, Madge, their youngest daughter was married to Irving L. Wright. The family circle had remained unbroken by death until Mrs. Martin was called home. There is reason for thanksgiving to Him who for so many years preserved the lives of all.

Mrs. Martinís last illness was short. She had not been feeling very well for some days, but performed her accustomed duties on Saturday. On Sabbath morning she awoke not feeling so well. Physicians were called, and all were hopeful for her recovery, but this was not the plan of Him who holds our lives in his hands, and the end came on Sabbath afternoon. She seemed to be prescient that the change was coming in her life.

Mrs. Martin was a devoted mother. This was pre-eminently her sphere. The home and its interests filled a large place in her heart, and she was untiring in her efforts to make the home life what it ought to be. Her devotion to the circle of loved ones was clearly marked, and her unselfishness; her thoughtfulness for her own as bound them very closely together.

In her early life she made confession of her faith in Christ, and through the years has filled her place in the church. She will be greatly missed in the home, in her wide circle of friends and in the church.

The funeral service was held from the home, 210 West Boston avenue, Wednesday morning at 10:00 oíclock. It was conducted by her pastor, Rev. J. S. Wilson, assisted by Rev. N. Weingart, of Scotch Ridge, and Rev. S. C. Picken, of India.
