Whitcomb, Marian (1875)







----Source: CLARK COUNTY PRESS (Clark County, Wis.) 01/23/1875

Whitcomb, Marian (? - 1875)

Died, at Humbird, Clark County, Wis., on the night of the 18th of April, 1875, Marian, wife of F. W. Whitcomb, after a protracted illness of nearly ten weeks.

So closes a blameless and well spent life. In the advent of Mrs. Whitcomb society loses a rare gem a woman of refined taste, expanded intellect and high moral nature. She was possessed of a warm and generous heart and where ever she walked in the paths of life, friendship and love attended. Her attachments were ardent and sincere, as a large circle of mourning friends will attest. But it was useless to attempt an enumeration of her many virtues. In contemplating her death we see a being cut off in the prime of life. Like a full-blown rose nipped by the frost when its beauties were most resplendent, so was she snatched away by the had of death at a period where her life was becoming most useful to herself and others.

Rest, May be, for we are assured you will meet your well merited reward in that life to come, and it is that thought alone that can reconcile us in our grief.

The last sad rites which her sorrowing friends could perform were held at Humbird on Tuesday afternoon, presided over by the Rev. Mr. Briggs. A large procession followed her to her final resting place, and an inaudible God bless you, breathed from very heart, followed the coffin in the grave.

The bereaved husband has the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community, he having lost a loving companion and a true life.

Truly The King of shadows loves a shining mark.
