Mary Louisa Wortz

F, b. 4 February 1807, d. 15 October 1902
     Mary Louisa Wortz was born on 4 February 1807 at Hanover, York Co., PA. She was the daughter of Jacob Wortz and Juliana DeWald. Mary Louisa Wortz married George E. Houck, son of John Houck and Anna (?), on 16 May 1824 at Adams Co. (probably), PA. Mary Louisa Wortz died on 15 October 1902 at Centerville, Wayne Co., IN, at age 95 OBITUARY:

Mary Worts Houck was born in Hanover, Pa., February 4, 1807 and departed this life October 15, at the advanced age of 95 years, 8 months and 9 days. She was joined in matrimony with George Houck in Pennsylvania, May 16, 1824. To this union 13 children were born, four of whom are still living. Two sisters are still living in Pennsylvania. There are 21 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. She with her husband and family moved to Indiana and located in Centerville about the year 1856, where she has spent the remainder of her life.
In Pennsylvania she became a member of the Lutheran church in her childhood, and on locating in Centerville she joined the M. E. church and ever lived a consistent christian life, always dilligent, with the children in attending all services of the church and ready to contribute her part in the social meetings as well as in all other departments of church work. Her faith in the principals and promises of the gospel was strong and her joys were many.
She was a good kind neighbor, always doing for the poor and the needy, even not willing to turn a tramp from her door without supplying his needs. Therefore she had the respect and love of all who knew her, for her long life was filled with good deeds.
For five years past she has been confined at home, unable for the most part to leave her chair, and amidst all, finally she lost the power of speech, but no murmur of complaint was heard, but she attributed all to the will of God and she was happy. After 95 long years of service she has now entered upon the joys awaiting her in the better land.

She was buried in October 1902 at Crown Hill Cemetery, Centerville, Wayne Co., IN.
