To them were born six children, Amanda Quick died November 29, 1875. The living are: Mrs. Emma LaFee of Fort Des Moines, Iowa; Mrs. Susan LaFee, of Linneus, Mo.; Mark A. Quick of Des Moines; J. F. Quick, of Patterson; Mrs. Ella Beck, of Des Moines.

She was converted in her girlhood life in New Jersey, and joined the M. E. church. She transferred her membership from Horicon, Wis., to Patterson, of which church she was a member at the time of her death.

Her body was brought from Des Moines Tuesday and taken to the old home, four and one-half miles northeast of Patterson, where funeral services were held at 10 o'clock by Rev. W. G. Hohenshelt, M. E. minister, of Winterset and interment was made in the Montpelier cemetery.

The large attendance from town and country evidenced the high esteem in which the deceased was held. Twenty-one children and grandchildren were at the funeral.

The choir that sung were Mesdames Harold Small and Otto Riley and Messrs. Frank Tincture and Roy Folwell.

The departure of an old resident, beloved mother, esteemed friend and neighbor marks an epoch in the family and community life.
