Obituary Sunday Mabel Jane Coleman Hall July 1st 1891 to March 14 1946

Today I am sharing the obituary of my great grandmother. Her daughter Alta is my grandmother on my father's side.  

 Mrs Mabel Jane Coleman Hall was born on July 1st 1872 at Greenwood Nebraska.  The greater part of her early childhood was spent at that place.  She spent her youth with her parents who moved a number of times.
     On August 28th 1891, she was married to Arthur R Hall at Denver Colorado.  Soon the newly married couple left this territory to make

their home for four years in Chicago, Illinois. They returned from there to Nebraska, settling on a farm at Geneva.  After leaving Geneva they continued to make their home in the state of Nebraska until the death of Mr. Hall, which occurred in 1919.  Mrs Hall remained in Nebraska until 1923, when she finally came to the black hills territory and made her home with her two daughters, Mrs George Sturm and Mrs Frank Sauer near Custer, So Dakota.
     She was received into communion with the Triune  God in holy baptism at Geneva, Nebraska. Sixteen years ago she was received into communicant membership of the Lutheran Church by  Pastor John Wild, through the rite of confirmation.  Mrs Hall was truly a faithful Christian and knew and loved her Savior, Jesus Christ.
     One brother, Elmer Coleman of Taylor Nebraska and one sister Mrs. Mary Wirsig of  Berryville, Arkansas are grieved by her parting.  Of her own family she had to part with her oldest daughter, Alta two years ago, when she was laid to rest.  Two daughters bid her farewell today in tears, namely Mrs. George Sturm and Mrs. Frank Sauer, together with their husbands.  In addition there are twelve grand children and 13 great grandchildren that mourn her passing
     Oh God of all comfort, we pray Thee fervently to be Thou at the side of the mourning and sustain them with the consolation of Thy Holy Word.
