Obituary: Marie Irene Combs
17 Aug 1917 - 8 Jan 2006
(Obituary Source) Marie Irene Combs passed away on Sunday, January 8, 2006 at the Letcher Manor Nursing Home in Whitesburg, Kentucky. Marie was the daughter of the late Shade and Ollie Adkins Combs. Marie was born on August 17, 1917, being 88 years, 4 months, and 22 days of age at the time of her passing. Marie was a member of the Mt. Olivet Old Regular Baptist Church.
Marie was preceded in death by her husband, Ishmel Combs, and 5 brothers and 5 sisters. She is survived by 2 daughters, Gathelee Terrell of Louisville and Ollie Marie Smith of Mayking; one son, Tommy Combs of Letcher; 4 brothers, Shade Combs, Jr. of Otisco, Indiana, Watson Combs of Louisville, Bennett Combs of Ice, and Edison Combs of Letcher; 1 sister, Elizabeth Looney of Middletown, Ohio; and 4 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren along with many other relatives and friends to mourn her passing. Marie Combs was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and daughter. She loved her family and loved to have them around her. She also loved her church family and her Lord very much. She was saved and baptized into the Old Regular Baptist Church as a young woman. As she worked in and around her home she could often be heard singing “Precious Memories” or “The Great Speckled Bird”. She worked hard for her family and loved doing for them. Her heart was broken when Ishmel, her husband of fifty-six years, was called home to be with the Lord. She could be heard at night asking the Lord to call her home, too. Now, that prayer has been answered. Mom, tell Dad we love and miss him, just as we love and miss you.Why do we mourn departing friends or shake at death’s alarm? Tis but the voice that Jesus sends to call them to his arms. The Family
