Alta Louisa Damewood

Alta Louisa Damewood was born to James H. and Lillian (Bolton) Damewood March 24, 1892 near Speed, Kansas and passed away quietly Monday night, January 20, 1964 at the Norton County Hospital.

Alta was united in marriage to Leonard Carter in 1912.  To this union was born a son, Chester, who died at the age of 18 months.  Mr. Carter died shortly afterward after a long illness.

In 1920 she was married to Ross Anthony Greene.  This union was blessed with 7 children, all of whom survive.  Ross passed away at the age of 65 in 1957.

She was married to John A. Miller who preceded her in death.

Alta was a devout Christian woman who devoted her life to her family, children, grand-children and friends.  Hers was a heart of purest gold.  She was a member of the Methodist Church from early childhood.

She leaves to mourn – her children:  Ross H. Greene of West Chester, Penn., Mrs Virgil (Mary) Miller of Farmington, New Mexico, Donald R. Greene of Kansas City, Mo., twin sons, Jack E. Greene of Wichita, Kansas, Jean E. Greene of Itasca, Illinois, Mrs. Lewis (Dorothy) Beach of Norton, Kans., Mrs. Ray (Loa Dee) McCabe of Farmington, New Mexico.  Also surviving are 17 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild.

She leaves also three brothers and 3 sisters, Mrs. Jessie Patton, Mrs. Zona Swanson, Ivory Damewood, Orville Damewood, James Damewood and Mrs. William (Olla) Reynolds.

She was preceded in death by her parents, one brother Ora Damewood, two sisters, Eva Ray and Mrs. Albert (Effie) Swanson.

The following poem was written by her 12 year old grand-daughter Sharon Beach, a week preceding her illness: 


Life goes on, man grows old,

Warm summer air grows cold,

When man grows old he eventually dies,

As sorrowful clouds cover up blue skies.

Spring comes, many are born,

Those who die are surely mourned,

Those who leave the earths face

Are followed by young who take their place.

Funeral services were held at the Eckhart Funeral Chapel Jan. 23, 1964, at 2:00pm with Rev. J. C. Daniel officiating.  Mrs. Claire Kahler and Mrs. Kenneth Kirkendall accompanied by Mrs. Dane Bales as organist, sang “In the Garden” and “The Old Rugged Cross.”  Casketbearers were Leland Baird, Jack Rundle, Blaine Lappin, Max Donahey, Charles Lohrmeyer and A. G. E. Cummings.  Interment was in the Pleasant View Cemetery.


We would like to thank every one for their cards, flowers, food, and expressions of sympathy during our time of sorrow.
