Obituary: Mary Ann (Adams) Comb
6 Oct 1867 - 20 Aug 1941

Mary Ann Adams Combs obituary as published in the August 28, 1941, issue of The Mountain Eagle:

Smoot Creek Loses Good Mother

Once more death has come into our neighborhood. It comes when it is least expected, and many times when we are not prepared as should be for it. This time it took from the home a precious mother.

Last Wednesday morning death called for Aunt Mary Ann Combs, wife of Uncle Shade Combs and quietly and peaceably she answered that call - it is a call that will in time come to us all.

Mary Ann Combs was nearly 76 years of age. She was born October the 6th, 1867, and passed away on August 20, 1941.

Upwards of 56 years ago, she was married to Uncle Shade Combs and for 54 years, they lived happily together, until separated by death about one and one-half years ago, when Uncle Shade passed on. Since that time, she has not been satisfied, lost and lonesome, like the dove when its mate is gone far away, she looked forward to the time when she could pass on and get away from this world of sorrow.

In her passing she leaves ten children, as follows: Betty, Cinda Lewis, Minda Frazier, Ida Frazier, Sarah Frazier, Tiny Frazier, all of Hot Spot; John, Earnest and Martha Maggard and Effie Feltner and many grand children and great grand children, many friends and relatives who today deeply regret her passing.

In her last days Mother said she was expecting to meet her husband again; she prayed all along that God would help her and that He would take care of her.

Mother is gone and left us,
Went from earth to live above;
But my mind is full of memories
With deeds of her great love.
With gentle hands but often weary,
They worked for me day by day,
She was patient, tender, devoted,
Which was always Mother's way.

Funeral services were held Thursday of last week by Elders Lundy and Joe Hagans and G. Bennett Adams and burial in the family cemetery near the old home.
