THE LARNED EAGLE-OPTIC, 24 February 1899
In Memoriam of MRS. MARY E. MIZE
In Memorium

Died, of pluro-pneumonia, at Larned, Kansas, Thursday, January 31st, 1899, Mary E. Mize, aged seventy-one years, six months, and two days.
Mary E. Patch was born near Lebanon Springs, Columbia county, New York, July 29th, 1827. She was converted at the age of sixteen, and was soon after baptized into the Lebanon Springs Baptist church by Elder Jacob Knapp. In 1850 she removed with her parents to Illinois, and in 1853 was married to Elder J. H. Mize at Troy, Madison county, Illinois. Two sons were born as a result of this union, the first dying in infancy. The second, Mr. Geo. H. Mize, resides in this city, and is one of the leading lumber-men of south central Kansas, having been in business here about fifteen years.
The deceased came to Larned in 1885 with her husband, when he assumed the pastorate of the First Baptist church of this city. As the wife of one of the best known and most active ministers in western Kansas she rendered valuable aid and assistance to her husband in all his various pastorates, and to her, as well as to the energy of her husband, is due in no small degree the credit of the erection of a number of Baptist houses of worship which stand as monuments in several towns and villages in this section of Kansas to their zeal and devotion to the cause of their Savior. Quiet, constant, devoted to her home and church work, she was ever ready and willing to do the Master’s bidding cheerfully, and although during her last illness she suffered severely, she died in the certainty of her heavenly reward, and was ready and anxious for the glorious rest of those who are washed in the blood of the Lamb.
