      Cassie Amanda Ashmore was born in Mitchell county, Iowa July 3, 1886 and died June 8, 1935 at the age of 48 years, 11 months and 5 days.

      October 25, 1905 she was united in marriage with Clarence H. Boeck. They lived on a farm in Mitchell county until 1919 when they came to Nora Springs. This was her home until death.

      Wherever the deceased made her home she was always activly identified with all community interests. She was the first president of the Auxilary of the American Legion.

      All her life she worked in the church. On May 9, 1932 she was baptized and formally united with the Methodist communion. To all its activities she gave unsteadly of time and energy, and served as president of the Calendar Circle until ill health compelled her resignation.

      She was also a member of the Rebekahs and the Harmony and Fortnightly clubs.

      Supreme among her interests was her home. She loved all the duties and responsiblities connected with it. The door was always open and a warm welcome to be found within.

      In October of 1933 she suffered a serious stroke. For months she lay in bed. But due to an indomitable spirit she finally won over her affiction, and once more entered into neighborhood activities. Her friends rejoiced at her recovery, but she never fully recovered from the attack, although living each day with a fine positive spirit.

      Monday evening June 3rd, while entertaining the Auxiliary, she suffered another stroke. For five days she lay unconscious. Late Saturday night God's angel of mercy came and carried her "over the river". (Rest missing)
