Notes for Almeda Alice McNAME

1952 Obituary:276 Almeda Alice McName was born September 15, 1875, just north of the city of Wapakoneta, Ohio, where she spent her girlhood days. It became her part to assume home responsibilities early in life, having lost her mother in accidental death at the early age of ten yers. Often she spoke words of appreciation of her father who, though great courage and sacrifice, kept his eight children in the home and brought them to maturity trained in the responsibilities of home life. On December 24, 1898, she was united in marriage to Mr. Martin K. Morey, and throughout their many years of married life they have continued to live in and near Wapakoneta, making, keeping, and enjoying their many friends. To this union four children were born, two daughters and two sons, all of whom it has been mother’s privilege to enjoy to her last.

At the age of eighteen she was converted in the Bethel Church, a little country church just north of Buckland, and for the last fifteen or twenty years has been a member of Old Salen Church here in Wapakoneta, to which she gave her loyal devotion and love in faithful service, attending the services and helping in what ever way possible as long as strength permitted. For the past several years Sister Morey has been a patient sufferer in pain and weakness and last Monday morning suffered a paralytic stroke, of which the Lord had given her a premonition for several days. For in these days she told her loved ones that she would have a stroke and be here only a few days. Thursday morning, April 24, she was called to her crowning at the age of seventy six years, seven months, and nine days.

She leaves to mourn their loss in her going the four children, Mrs. Edna Davis, Lloyd and Fred and Mrs. Ruth Brown all living in or near Wapakoneta, eleven grandchildren, six great-grandchildren. One sister, Louise Gross of St. Marys, Ohio; three brothers, William of Wapakoneta, Henry of Hume, Ohio, and Alonzo of Kilgore, Texas, with other relatives and a host of local friends.

Stars may shine for a thousand years
A thousand years and a day
But God and I will love and live
When stars are passed away
