Mrs. Henrietta Marks, widow of Jacob Marks, for years a leading butcher and good citizen, died last night at 8:45 o’clock at the family home, Ninth and Jackson Streets, after six weeks’ severe illness from Bright’s disease.  The announcement will grieve many friends, for Mrs. marks was an esteemed lady.  For many years she had conducted a store adjoining her home and had established herself with the people as a woman of much worth.  She leaves two children, a son, Mr. Morris Marks, and a daughter, Miss Hattie Marks.

The funeral will occur Monday morning at 10 o’clock from the family residence.  The burial will be in the Jewish cemetery, near Lone Oak.

Mother, Henrietta Marks, September 15, 1846 – August 22, 1914.
