The family did spend some years in Carroll County, Arkansas, and in Jasper County, Missouri. She is survived by two daughters and two sons, Mrs. H.H. Wilhite, Mrs. Vonnie Nelson, Chas.

The world her cathedral, her alter, always serving her Lord. Doing for others, lending a lifting hand to all. Her life an open book-full of treasures and jewels. Each page, in her book of days, shines as a symbol of faith and goodness with her very soul shining out of her sweet, lined face, as a gentle guide to young and old. Aunt Margaret has gone to her reward. She would not have us mourn her going for she has only passed on to a sweet peace. May we look upon her beautiful life as a golden guide for us all.”

The Rev Worth Caughron officiated at the funeral services. Burial was in the: Selmore Cemetery under direction of the Chaffin Funeral Home. An obituary, submitted by the survivors, follows: Obituary The gates of Heaven have swung ajar and another soul has entered into that mysterious realm that lies yet further onward that all men seek and hope to attain; that place that is the final resting place of the soul of mortal man. This time the gates of Heaven. have encircled and closed upon the soul of Martha Jane Adams, who came into this world on the 14th day of October 1884, and whom the Lord saw proper to take our from our midst on the 3rd day of January, 1950, at the age of 65 years, 2 months and 20 days. She was joined in holy wedlock and united in the bonds of matrimony with William Franklin Landers the 12th day of August, 1908, which union was blessed with God's greatest gift of four children, all of whom are living and who are unable to comprehend the magnitude of their loss nor to obtain solace for their aching hearts and agonizing souls. They are Mrs. Alta White of Highlandville, Mrs. Geraldine Patterson of Galena, Mrs. Verenece White of Ozark, and Mrs. Opal McLean of Nixa; seven grandchildren, one great-grandson, and one brother, J.H. Adams of Ozark. At the age of 14 years she became a staunch believer in the teachings of the Lord and Master, and, in obedience with His commands, united with the Prospect Baptist Church. In later years her membership was moved to the Highlandville Baptist church of which she was a true and loyal member even until her death. She lived so that when her summons came to join the innumerable throng that moves to that mysterious realm, she was ready and passed from the repose of life into that of death and thence through the Gates of the Kingdom of Heaven into the Reward of eternal glorious, everlasting life that is the reward and the inherent right of all of God's children. Her husband passed away 17 years ago, September 8, 1932. A vast throng of friends survive her. Besides her daughters; she is sadly missed by a number of other relatives all of whom will ever miss her cheery smile and lovable heart. Perhaps the sentiments of the our survivors may, better be expressed by the following: Dearest Mother, thou has left us, Oh 'Tis sad to say farewell: But 'tis God, who has bereft us, He doeth all things well, Tho we never-more shall greet thee Neath' the circle of the sun, But in Heaven we hope to meet thee When our work on Earth is done.
