Enterprise, Wallowa County, Oregon
Grandma Martin, one of the pioneers of Lost Prairie, died last Saturday, November 9th. She was 83 years old and was for more than 20 years a resident of this end of the county. For more than a year she has been having poor health but death came when it was hardly expected. For an old woman she possessed an unusual amount of vitality and vigor in both body and mind, and death came as a silent messenger and bore her spirit away quietly and peacefully.
She leaves to mourn her loss three sons, four daughters, a number of grand children and a host of friends. Her remains were laid away in the family cemetery Monday, November 11th, Rev. A. L. Cathera conducting the services.
