Forbes, Susan Mrs. – Obituary

Susan D. Forbes died Friday at 11 a.m. at the home of her daughter, Mrs. W. E. Warden. She came to Enterprise last July to make her home with her daughter. A succession of colds and the rigor of winter proved more than her frail body could endure and she succumbed to a bronchial attack quite suddenly.

Mrs. Forbes was born in Ohio in 1835 and died in Enterprise, Oregon April 4, 1919. She was married to W. I. Forbes at the age of 18 and to this union was born nine children, seven of whom preceded her in death.

Her husband died July 1914 and was buried in Moundridge, Kansas to which place her body was taken Tuesday by her two remaining children, Mrs. W. E. Warden and J. W. Forbes of La Grande. There she will be laid for her final rest beside her husband and her oldest daughter with whom she made her home until her daughter’s death about a year ago.

For many years a consistent Christian and a member of the Methodist church the influence of her noble life still abides.
