Nellie Cats was born in Concord, New Hampshire 75 years ago. She was married to Mr. Madden who preceded her to the great beyond 15 years ago.

To this union were born three children, all of whom are living. They are Sadie Evans of this city and Edward Madden and Gentry Madden both of McCurtain, Oklahoma.

Two years ago she came from Hazel, South Dakota and has made her home with Mr. and Mrs. Evans of Payette.

She was converted in earlier life in the Union Christian church, but her church preference is later years was the Pentecostal Assembly.

Through in ill health for many years she was confined to her bed only four months before her death, which occurred Dec. 12, 1929.

This kind, loving mother who has gone to her God, will be remembered by many in and around Payette, for all who knew her, loved her, and her live and testimony were an inspiration to all who knew her. May God give us more such mothers who love their home, their children and their God.

Funeral services were conducted Sunday, Dec. 15, at 2:30 p.m. by Mrs. Ernest Wade at the Pentecostal church, assisted by Rev. T. A. Wayne of this city. She was laid to rest at Riverside cemetery to await the morning of Resurrection.
