Enterprise, Wallowa County, Oregon

Marie Browning was born at Chester, Illinois on December 22nd, 1895 and died at Enterprise on August 23rd, 1919, aged 23 yrs., 8 mos. and one day.

Her death came as a distinct shock to the community as very few people knew of her illness, although it was known that her health had been ailing for about a year.

Marie had grown from childhood into lovely young womanhood here in Enterprise, to which place she had come with her parents, fourteen years ago, from Danville, Ill. With the exception of two years in school, one year in California and a few short stays in other places, at intervals. All her girlhood has been spent here in her home. She was a girl whose many sterling qualities, cheerful presence and lovable disposition have endeared her to a great number of loving friends.

Funeral services were held at the home on Monday at 2:30 p.m. and were conducted by rev. F. R. Sibley. Interment was in the Enterprise cemetery where the funeral service of the Order of Eastern Star was held, Marie having been a member of that order. An abundance of beautiful flowers attested to the love and esteem in which Marie was held by all who knew her.

Besides her parents, she leaves a sister, Mrs. A. B. Conoway, of Enterprise, and three brothers, Cecil E. and Sherley N. Browning of Chowchilla, Cal. And Herbert L. Browning of Enterprise.

The entire community unite with the stricken family to mourn her loss.
