She was united in marriage to William Shively, December 14, 1871.
At an early age she was with her husband united with the Progressive Brethren Church, later transferring her membership to the United Brethren Church at Athens. In recent years not being able to attend church services, she gave of her means and always enjoyed the fellowship of God's people.
The husband preceded her in death January 14, 1919. The family consisted of ten children; one dying in infancy and a daughter, Mrs. Rosa Wines who died in North Dakota. Those left to feel the loss of a Mother are Elmer, near the old home, Charles of Tiosa, George of Warm Springs, Montana, Martin of Niles, Michigan, Mrs. Ida Bryant, near the old home, Everett, of Richland Center, Noah of Roann; also twenty grand-children and twenty-eight great-grandchildren.
Her life was one of devotion and service for a number of years at various times it was her lot to care most tenderly for three aged loved ones. She also reared to womanhood, the little infant granddaughter left motherless by the death of Mrs. Rosa Wines.
She hath done what she could and gone to the reward that awaits her.
"We miss the voice of one we love;
A precious form has passed away,
To join the angel throng above
In realms of endless day."
