MRS. MARY HODGES DIED EARLY TODAY
HAD LONG BEEN HOUSEKEEPER IN BLACKMAN BROS. HOME
Mrs. Mary Hodges, 78, widow of the late A. T. Hodges, died at the Blackman home, 302 Lincoln avenue, at 3:15 a. m. today after an illness of several weeks.
Mrs. Hodges, who had been in charge of the Blackman home for several years, was well known and very highly respected in the city and her death will be mourned by many.
Funeral services will be held at the Morfoot Funeral Home Monday afternoon at 2:00 with Rev. J. O. Simon of Memorial Lutheran church in charge, after which the body will be taken to Iowa Falls, where interment will be by the side of her husband who passed away 13 years ago and the only son, Elbert, who died 26 years ago.
Mrs. Hodges had long been an active member of the Order of Eastern Star and that order will have part in the services.
The deceased was a native of Illinois and would have been 79 years old in October. The family lived at Iowa Falls for a number of years and it was there that the only son, Elbert, died about 26 years ago.
It was twenty-one years ago that Mr. and Mrs. Hodges, accompanied by their daughter-in-law, Mrs. Myra Hodges and the grandchildren Clyde and Eula, came to Nevada and entered the home of their relatives, the Blackman brothers. They lived here for eight years, after which Mr. and Mrs. Hodges returned to Iowa Falls and there the husband died about 13 years ago.
Shortly after the death of the husband, the wife returned to Nevada and she had since been housekeeper in the Blackman home.
In the meantime the daughter-in-law, now Mrs. Fred Doering and her children had taken up their home at Minneapolis, Kans. where they still live. The grandson, Clyde Hodges, returned to Nevada a few years ago and has since lived here with the grandmother.
She leaves as immediate relatives only the two grandchildren, Clyde Hodges of Nevada and Mrs. Eulah Wilcox of Minneapolis, Kans., and two brothers. The brothers are F. E. Remington and Howard Remington, both of Clay Center, Kans.
The granddaughter has been here for some time assisting in the care of Mrs. Hodges and the daughter-in-law, Mrs. Fred Doering, husband and small son have been here for the past few days.
