Sabbath morning the community was shocked to that Quinn Martin
Marrs , had passed from labor to reward; from acute suffering here to the
happy land of which it is written: "Neither shall there be any more pain."

years he moved with his parents to Arnold, Nebraska and there attained
his manhood. February 20, 1903 at Gandy he was united in marriage with
Mary Kinnard, and to this union were born four sons; Lee, Johnnie, Cecil
and James. Besides these he leaves to mourn his departure his aged mother
four sisters; Mrs. Millie Twist, Mrs. Lucy Newman, Mrs. Augusta Jones
and Mrs. Emma alexander, all of Arnold.
Quinn Marrs was a kind husband and an affectionate father who will
be sadly missed by members of the home and the disposition of the mans
was such that he is mourned as well by a large circle of friends. Friday
morning before his death he called the writer, and after council, reading
of scriptures, and prayer he gave himself wholly into the keeping
of " The never failing Friend," and passed away two days later in the
triumph of that faith.
Funeral services were held from the late home Monday afternoon at four
o'clock, and the remains were transposed to Arnold Tuesday morning
and services were conducted on the lawn of his mother's home at
ten thirty o'clock. Rev. B.A. Shively officiating on both occasions. The
