Austin County Obits


Martha Montgomery Reese

Died at her home in Sempronius, Texas, on Wednesday March 2, 1910, at 11:45 a.m., Mrs. K. W. Reese, nee Montgomery, wife of Capt K. W. Reese, a long time resident of Austin county.
Mrs. Reese comes of one of the old families of the county and besides her immediate family which consists of her husband, three daughters and one son, she leaves a number of other realatives to mourn her passing away.
For some time past Mrs. Rees had been suffering with a malady which resulted in her demise, and the end of her very useful and exemplary life was not unexpected.
One brother who survives her is Mr. F. L. Montgomery of Eda and her sisters are Mesdames American Crump, Florence Cochran and Carrie Crawford and Miss Maggie Montgomery.
All of these are well known to many of our people and to them as well as to the member of the immediate family sincere sympathy is extended.
The funeral is to take place from the family home at Sempronius tomorrow, Friday, March 4th, and interment will be made at Oak Knoll cemetery here at 12 o'clock.
The TIMES begs to extend its sympathy to the bereaved in their hour of trial.
Death of Mrs. K. W. Reese
Last Wednesday morning at 11:45 o'clock the angel of death entered the home of Mr. K. W. Reese, at Semponius, and took therefrom the loving wife and mother, Mrs. K. W. Reese.
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled:
A place is vacant in that home,
Which never can be filled.
For nearly a year Mrs. Reese had been in feeble health, and although she was not expected to live, still her death came quite unexpectedly.
An angel came and bore her away, to bloom again, within the Gardens of Light, beside the House of Many Mansions.
Aching hearts that grive, weep not as those who have no faith; look up to where she blooms in Heaven's own fields, so sweet, so good, so pure, so true.  O lily of immaculate purity, how fit an emblem of her noble life; that life so filled with good deeds and loving thoughts, fading like the lily, sweet, patient, uncomplaining and resigned.
Dear one, we miss thee sore and yet--in Heaven we know that all that is well.  No storms, nor shocks can touch thee there: serene to wait thro' all the years.
Besides her sorrowing husband, son and three daughters, she leaves quite a number of other relatives and friends to mourn her loss.
Her funeral took place from the family home at Sempronius Friday morning.
A large funeral cortege following the remains to Oak Knoll cemetery at Bellville, where they were tenderly laid to rest by the side of her son, Kinion, who died ten years ago.  The obsequies were conducted by Rev. I. W. Campbel.
