Death of Mrs. Marietta Browne.

The many friends of Dr. and Mrs. M. S. Browne, in this community, will be pained to hear of the death of the latter, which occurred at Winchester, Ky., last week.  Dr. Browne and his pleasant family lived for several years at Cassville, where they were universally esteemed, and from where they removed to Winchester, Ky., during the fall of 1883.

The Winchester Democrat gave the following account of her death:

Mrs. Marietta Browne, beloved wife of Dr. M. T. Browne, died at her late residence on Washington Street, on Friday evening at half-past six o’clock, after an illness of three days.

Mrs. Browne was a Miss Congleton, of Nichols County, and moved with her husband to this city about three years ago.  During her stay with us she had accumulated more friends than perhaps any stranger ever did.  She was charitable, and a ministering angel always to the needy and suffering, endearing herself to the hearts and winning the admiration of all who knew her.  Mrs. Browne was a Christian, a member of the Presbyterian Church, and was held in the highest esteem by her brethren and pastor, and her vacant pew will be an emblem of sadness and sorrow to the entire congregation in years to come.  She was a faithful, working member and to fill her place will be a matter of no little difficulty.  She was a lady of about forty-two years of age and leaves two very interesting children – a daughter, and son who, together with their respected father, have the deepest sympathy of the entire community.

Her funeral which took place from the Presbyterian Church Sunday afternoon, was attended by the largest number of people that has ever been seen in Winchester on such an occasion, and the funeral train, which was nearly one mile in length, gave evidence of great esteem in which she and her family were held by our people. Rev. Matthew Van Lear delivered the discourse and during his talk, paid a touching tribute to the memory of
