DEATH OF FORMER CITIZEN - Mrs. Martha J. Greene Passes Away at Cheney, Washington

Martha J. Greene, for many years a resident of this section and who will be recalled by many of the old timers, passed away at Cheney, Washington last week. The following item from the Cheney paper will be read with interest by the many friends of the deceased who resided in this section:

"Martha J. Love was born in Chatauqua county, New York in 1833 and passed from life at Cheney, Wash., May 9, 1915, at the ripe old age of 82 years.  In 1851 she was united in marriage to Myron D. Greene and to this union were born two sons and three daughters, two of whom survive, Dr. M. Greene of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Mrs. F.C. Greene of Cheney, Wash.

Mr. and Mrs. Greene moved to Dakoto county, Minn., in 1858, where they lived until 1888 when they moved to Grangeville, Idaho.  In 1910 they came to Cheney to make their home with their daughter, Mrs. F.C. Green.  Here in 1911 Mr. Greene died.

Mrs. Greene was converted in early life and united with the Methodist church of which body she remained a faithful member to the end of her life.  She was a woman of rare religious experience and to the end her triumphant faith was an inspiration to all who knew her.

Funeral services were held from the home of her daughter on Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock and the body laid to rest in Fairview cemetery.
