Mustang Enterprise, Canadian County

Thursday May 8, 1913

DIED: At the home of her son Albert Strever(s), Mariah M. Thompson passed out of this temple of clay at 4 p.m. April 28th, after a lingering illness with paralysis.
Grandma Thompson, as she is generally known, was born in Williams(on) County, Ohio, October 1st, 1835. She was married to John Strever(s) June 17th, 1855. To this union were born four boys, all of whom died in infancy except the one mentioned above. In the sixties she was left a widow, her husband having died in the service of his country. Oct 10, 1869 she was again married to Mr. Thompson, who also preceded her into the valley of the shadow of death by several years. After nearly 78 years of life's voyage battling with the waves her frail bark has gone down. But her spirit we trust was received by Jesus to whom she constantly called in the last hours of life. May the good Lord shelter and feed the survivors in the home from which she has gone. Rev. C.S. Warner conducted the funeral services, after which the remains were laid to rest April 29th in the Mustang cemetery."
