IN LOVING MEMORY

On Monday evening, Feb. 2, 1931 at 1 o’clock, the death angel entered the home of Lewis Szenasi and took away his darling father, George Szenasi.

He was a true Christian father, and was ready and willing to meet his maker when he said “come,” although he has been in ill health for a year and an invalid for six years.

He was 75 years old. He was laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery amid a large concourse of relatives and friends. His grave was covered with a mound of beautiful flowers.

He leaves to mourn his death, a wife and children: Mike and Joe Szenasi, Oklahoma; Frank Szenasi, Dilley, Texas; Pete, John, Lewis and Agnes of Corsicana; Mrs. Annie Budai of Angus, Texas, and Mrs. Mary Levay, Detroit, Mich; 35 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren and other relatives and friends.

We miss thee from our home, dear one,
We miss thee from thy place,
A shadow o’er our life is cast,
We miss the sunshine of thy face; our darling has left us.

Your father’s gone but not forgotten,
In your memory he still lives;
He’s gone to dwell on high
He’s living in that country where they never say goodbye.

“Tis hard to say a last goodbye,
To one whose love has brightened our way.
We must be courageous, hopeful and glad
For we shall meet him some day.

Swift the moments are flying away
Stars of life soon will shine,
In the region of love in a world above,
Let us hope for a long perfect day.

There’s a home prepared above
For every trusting soul,
Its walls were built by hands of love,
Its streets are paved with gold.

Weep not dear ones when storm of life is past
His soul is safe at home at last.
When no sickness, pain, nor death can ever come,
Where all tears are wiped away and no night can mar the day,
And the lamb of God is safe in that sweet home above.

Written by one who loved him,
AGNES SZENASY.

IN LOVING REMEMBRANCE OF MRS. HARRIET E. READ

On January 12, 1929, the death angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Thorn and took from us our dear mother, grandmother and sister.  "Grandma," as she was called by all who knew her, was loved by all. She was always ready to help in time of need and her chair is vacant now and can not be filled by anyone else. But she has gone from earth to heaven where there will be no more pain, or sorrow. She fell one afternoon and then had the flu, which she died of later.  Grandma, if sh had lived until March 24, would have been 82 years of age. She has gone from us now, and oh, how hard it was to give her up, but we will try to live so as to meet her in a land where there will be no more sand partings.
She was laid to rest Sunday afternoon in the Hamilton cemetery.  She leaves to mourn her death two sons, two daughters, two sisters and one brother, and a number of grandchildren and numerous other relatives and frineds.

FUNERAL SERVICES MONDAY AFTERNOON FOR MRS. B. MARKS

PIONEER CORSICANA WOMAN PASSED AWAY SUDDENLY SUNDAY MORNING

Funeral services for Mrs. Jennie Marks, aged 74 years, wife of B. Marks, who died suddenly Sunday morning about 4 o’clock at the morning about 4 o’clock at the family home, 630 West Fourth avenue, were conducted from the home Monday afternoon at 2 o’clock, with interment immediately afterward in the Hebrew cemetery. The services were conducted by Rabbi Brav of Corsicana, and Rabbi Taxson of Dallas. Active pallbearers were K. Wolens, H. Rothkoff, Jake Goldman, Louis Levine, Ike Cerf, Ben Goldsmith, I. Jaffe, Ike Levy, Sam Goldman, M. Pitlock. The honorary pallbearers were all close friends of the family.

Mrs. Marks was born in Russia and came to America when a girl of fourteen years. She met and was married to Benjamin Marks in New York City in 1872. Eight years after that time they came to Corsicana, where they have resided continuously since—forty-six years. Mr. Marks entered the mercantile business here soon after arriving and only a few years ago retired from the business which was taken over by his sons and is now known as Marks Brothers. During all those years Mrs. Marks was the inspiration that brought the success that attended the efforts of her husband and the children that came along later in life.

Besides her heart-broken husband, Mrs. Marks is survived by seven grown children, as follows: Mrs. Joe Epstein, Cleveland, Ohio; Alex and Abe Marks of Sherman, Harry Marks of Chickasha, Okla., Mendel, Sydney and Miss Esther Marks of Corsicana. She is also survived by one brother, L. Levy of New York City. All the children were present at the funeral services Monday afternoon except Mrs. Epstein, the daughter in Cleveland, who is herself ill and was unable to come.

Mrs. Marks has been in ill health for a number of years and seldom left her home, but she was known to all those who knew her as being one of the purest Christian characters that they had ever come in contact with. There was never a word of complaint on account of her sufferings, and she relied upon the promises of her God with the perfect assurance that all was right with the world and that all would be right with her when the final summons came.

She took a great pride in her home and her husband and children shared with her religion in the devotion that can come only from the pure in heart and the mother who loves her husband and her children with a love that passeth understanding. Mrs. Marks was true to the religion of her fathers, and let nothing interfere with her observance of the customs and beliefs that had come down to her from the ages. She practiced her religion in her everyday life and none ever came to her for succor of consolation that went away empty handed. Truly it can be said that the world was made better for her having passed this way, and many hearts are sad and many tears have mingled with those of her heartbroken companion for fifty-four years, and children who mourn her passing.
