Obituary- Grandma Harvy
Mary Noble was born at Lost Creek, Breathitt county, Kentucky, March 15, 1818, and died at her home, two and a half miles northeast of Amazonia, Feb. 23, 1907, aged 88 years, 11 months and 8 days. She was married to Andrew Harvy June 15, 1834. Of this union, eight children were born, two of whom and also her husband preceded her to the other shore. She has left behind to mourn her death six children, thirty-four grandchildren, seventy four great-grand-children and one great-great-grand-child. The family moved to Missouri in 1844, and have resided in Andrew county ever since. The last few years of her life have been spent in much weakness of body, but she retained her mental faculties clear and unimpaired to the very last, and was completely resigned to the will of God in regard to all her interests, both for time and eternity.
Her funeral was conducted by the pastor of the Amazonia M. E. church, of which she had been a member for a good many years. A great company of friends and relations were present to pay the last duties of respect to her remains, and she was buried by the side of her husband in Greenwich [sic] cemetery. A long life was spent and a peaceful end. Blessed are the dead which died in the Lord: they rest from their labors and their works do follow them."
