Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Kent

Mary Elizabeth Kent was born in Wood Hill, Illinios, October 1, 1860 and departed this life at her home on Clark Street, Augusta at the age of 76 years, eight months and 26 days.

Mary and Her parents came to to Kansas and settled on a farm west of Douglass when the child was 12 years old. They remained on the farm until 1895 when they moved to Douglass.

On February 8, 1877, Miss Kent was united in marriage to Mr. Milburn Theetge and to this union, six children were born, three of whom died in infancy. Those remaing to survive the parents are Mrs. Carrie Tucker of Neodesha, Kansas, Mrs. Flora Boucher, of Augusta, Mrs. Jesse Conover, of Pampa, Texas. Mrs. Theetge leaves one half-sister, Mrs. Nettie Curry, of Atlanta, Kansas: 10 grand children and 18 great-grandchildren and many friends.

Mrs. Theetge was a member of the Methodist church for many years and when she moved to Augusta, united with the Baptist church of which church she was a member at the time of her death. She was always active in church work as long as her health would permit. She was gracious help in times of sickness in her earlier days. She has fought a good fight, she died in faith. She has gone for her crowning.
