    • MARY HARRIET (LASBURY) RODWAY , was born in London, England, October 4, 1860, and, died at her home in Griggsville, August 30, 1935. At the age of six she came with her parents to Illinois and the remaining years of her life were spent in or near Griggsville. On October 31, 1882, she was marri-ed to Mr. W. K. Rodway who preced-ed her in death on April 8, 1895. To them were born four daughters, Mary Louise Richards who is also deceased; Elizabeth Baxendale of Detroit, Michigan; Edith Doane, of Griggsville; and Margaret Doane of Perry. Besides the three daughters, there are also one brother, Mr. M. M. Lasbury, a, sister, Mrs. Emma McConnell, and ten grand children, who survive to mourn her passing. Mrs. Rodway was long an active member of the Congregational church, of the Ladies' Benevolent Society, and of the Cree Missionary Society. She was also one of the early members of the Order of the Eastern Star. a past worthy matron of that organization, a member of the White Shrine of Jerusalem, a past president of the Abbie A. Hatch Chautauqua Circle, and at one time was elected president of the Pike County Federation of Women's Clubs. Her faithful performance of the duties of the various offices she held in these organizations is evidence of her active interest in all that might advance the welfare of the commun-ity, and in her death friends, neigh-bors and acquaintances will feel a personal loss. Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock in the Skinner Funeral Home, the Rev. J. K. Putt of St. James Church officiating. In-terment was in Griggsville cemetery.
