Young, Minnie May (Ashwood)
Obituary for Minnie May ASHWOOD YOUNG

Minnie May Ashwood, daughter of Thomas and Sarah Ashwood, was born April 4th 1877, and died September 3, 1923, aged forty-six years and five months. She was the eldest in a family of four children. Her father and one sister, Hattie Montooth, have precede her in death. Her school days were spent in the public schools of Ray, ILL., near which place she lived until two years ago, when, when with her family moved to Rushville.

On the 8th of February 1898 she was united in marriage to Joseph Young. To this union was born one daughter, Leona.

When a young girl Minnie was converted and united with the Methodist church at Ray where she was a member at the time of her death. During her life she
manifested the desires of an earnest Christian. She loved the Methodist church and it's deepest spiritual and practical principles. She has long been a defender in a vigorous manner of the thorough going principles of righteousness long taught and held sacred by that church.

She was much concerned with religious subjects and very diligent in her Master's service. For years she was a teacher in the Sunday School and was a very regular attendant at the services of the church.

Mrs. Young has been in poor health for some time. About a year ago it became apparent that her trouble might be serious. From then on she became worse and
it was found that she was suffering disease the cause and cure of which has not been discovered. At times her suffering was intense and in our loss we can be comforted in knowing she is at least in rest. She was tenderly cared for by her husband and daughter and by her mother who left her home to be a tower of strength and comfort in the home of her daughter.

There remains to mourn the untimely death of this estimable woman, her loving husband, their only child, Leona, her mother, her brother Herschel Glenn Ashwood of near Adair, Ill., and her sister Mrs. Nora Ritchey of near Rushville, besides many other sorrowing friends and relatives. Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon Sept 5th, at the First M. E. Church, Rev. J. C. Brown officiating. Interment in the Rushville cemetery.
