      Obituary
      "The Centralia Fireside Guard," (Centralia, Boone Co., MO) October 18, 1935 (page 1)

      AGED WOMAN IS CALLED
      CITIZEN OF THIS TOWN FOR OVER QUARTER OF A CENTURY
      PASSED AWAY. INTERMENT SATURDAY

      "Mrs. Amanda Schmoll died Thursday night, October 10, 1935 at 9:55 o'clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Carson Blanton in this city. Her death followed an illness of many months and a critical illness of about six weeks. Aged 76 years, seven months, 20 days."

      "Mrs. Schmoll had been in very poor health since November of last year, but was able to remain in her home until six weeks ago, when she was taken to the home of Mrs. Blanton where she could have constant care."

      "Amanda Dee McKinzie, daughter of John B. and Matilda Logue McKinzie, was born near Vandalia, Illinois on February 20, 1859. She came to Missouri with her parents when at the age of 14 years and spent the remainder of her life in Boone County."

      "She was twice married, her first marriage being to John R. Justus on September 18, 1877, who with three of their four children preceded her in death many years ago. She was united in marriage the second time to George Schmoll, on October 15, 1884. To this union nine children were born. One daughter and two sons are dead. The husband died December 16, 1913."

      "The following children survive their mother: Mrs. W. H. Buckler, McBaine; Mrs. J. N. Jones, Pearl, Illinois; Mrs. John P. Palmer, Washington, Iowa; Mrs. R. F. Hopper, Columbia; Mrs. Carson Blanton, Centralia; J. M. Schmoll, Parsons, Kansas; A. M. Schmoll, Kansas City. She is also survived by three brothers, John and Henry McKenzie, Columbia, Edward McKenzie of Greenbridge, Mo. and one sister, Mrs. T. D. Balden of Arkansas."

      "She is also survived by thirty four grand children and eight great-grandchildren."

      "At the age of 16 Mrs. Schmoll was converted and adopted the Christian faith, united with the church of Perche, south of Sturgeon, under the preaching of R. B.Heiser. She moved her membership to the First Christian church of this city. After her health began to fail she found that she could not walk the greater distance from her home to the church and she worshipped at the Holiness church. She was always faithful to her God and to her religion. She was a good, Christian mother, a loyal friend and so long as her health would permit she willingly gave her assistance to those in need."

      "She leaves to her children and grand children the heritage of a well spent, useful life. Coming as this woman did, into the early period of this country's development. Mrs. Schmoll began early in life to learn how to meet and to endure hardships. She accepted them as a part of life and endured them with a fortitude that is worthy of emulation. Lives such as this good woman lived are an inspiration to others and constitute an enduring monument in the hearts of those whom she leaves behind, and a light to guide their footsteps into the abundant life."

      "Funeral services were conducted Saturday afternoon at the First Christian church at 2:30 o'clock, by Reverend C. Allen Burrus."

      "Interment was in the city cemetery."

      "Pallbearers were W. D. Holloway, Alex Riley, V. G. Doty, T. W. McNear, Shannon Potts and Clifford Stover."

      "Flowersgirls: Mrs. W. B. Walden, Mrs. A. Strang, Mrs. Chas. Cook, Misses Eunice and Anna Jean Schmoll, Mildred and Marjorie Blanton, grandaughters of the deceased."
