      She was united in marriage to John H. Bolen, March 15, 1906. To this union three children were born - two sons and one daughter.

      She is survived by her husband, two sons, Edward Hartley and Raymond Robert, and one daughter, Dorothy Isabell; also her parents, two sisters, and four brothers, and many other relatives and friends.

      Be near to bless me when I wake,
      Ere thro' the world my way I take;
      Abide with me till in Thy love
      I lose myself in Heaven above.
