DEATH OF MRS. MARTIN TAKES LEADING CITIZEN....
WAS OUTSTANDING CHURCH AND CIVIC WORKER OF CITY
An eventful and useful life passed peacefully to rest at 2:00 p.m., Friday in the death of Mrs. Isabel M. Martin, which occurred at her home at 1430 Morgan. Death was caused by arthritis and gradually weakened heart induced by chronic asthma. Her physicial breakdown began soon after her return from a cruise to the North Cape, the Scandanavian countries and Russia three years ago. She had been confined to her home since then and she met the end with that rare faith and fortitude which was hers in all emergencies. The funeral will be held at the First Presbyterian Church at 3:30 p.m., Sunday, conducted by Rev. Edwin W. Armstrong, assisted by Dr. Arthur Miller and Dr. Fred Shaw. Interment will be in the family lot at Oakwood Cemetery.
Friends may call at the home or at the church after 1:30 p.m., Sunday.
Survivors: husband W.H. Martin, son, Max Martin, daughter, Mrs. Cleon Creel, sister, Alice Wirt, four grandchildren.
She came here in 1868. She was born Isabel Metier at Garden Grove, Iowa, a daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Levi Metier. The Metiers were Kansas pioneers coming to the state as a child in arms, the family located on a farm between Montana and Labette City in 1868, where she grew to womanhood.
In her teens, she taught school in Iowa, Oswego and Parsons. She was united in marriage to W. H. Martin at the home of a favorite cousin in Garden Grove, Iowa on Thanksgiving 1890. Few women made a deeper or more pleasing impression on the circle of persons they knew than Mrs. Will Martin. She had an uncommon number of interests and combined modesty, charm and wit with a wide first-hand knowledge of the world and its people which made her conversations a delight.
