Mary ellizabeth Sexton Reeves daughter of Frank doty Sexton and Katie, she was my grandmother. She was born in Washington and lived in Olympia, Ferndale, and I believe born in Chehalis Washington, she died in Portland Oregon where she had lived with her husband Orian Shirley Reeves. They had one survining child, my mother. I do not believe this Mary Elizabeth Sexton Reeves ever lived in Spokane.

Thank you for your answer! I was just going by information from the obit I have for her sister Mary Francis (SEXTON) Bartell who died in Oct. 1925 it states that Mary was living in Burlington at that time. Then on the obit I have for Frank Doty Sexton from 1938 it states Mary Elizabeth living in Spokane. I don't know the family seems to have alot of misiinformation. Again, I really am grateful for any information.
where can I get a copy of the obit of Mary Francis Sexton Bartell. They named all their daughters Mary eldest was Frances, then Mable (census shows Mayo) and Elizabeth, I believe Mary Mable may have been the one living in Spokane at the time of FD Sexton's death
correction! The obit for Mary Francis ( they called her Francis) (SEXTON) Bartel was in the Lewis County Advocate Newspaper 2 Oct.1925. She passed away 23 September 1925 at age 34. Of interest one of her nephews Ernest Sexton's obit is on the same page he was only 19 when he passed. The obit can be ordered from the Lewis county Historical Museum or from the state @ Ask a Librian there is a form you fill out and it takes 6 to 8 weeks. They will email you a PDF copy of the obit! This is a wonderful service we are blessed to have in Washington State. It helps if you know a date of death or birth and they get the copies or death or birth announcements! Good Luck
Mary Mabel (SEXTON) Hoeffle was living in Seattle at the time of F.D. Sexton's death in 1938! I am not sure whom the family was referring in the obit for F.D, however it does state "Mabel Huffly of Seattle and Mary Reives of Spokane". On the 1925 one for Francis it states"sisters Mabel Hofley of Seattle and Mary Reese of Burlington (which is near Ferndale). As you can see spelling is Not their strong point!
Some in the family have said the relative living in Spokane at the time of F.D. Sexton's. Was his daughter Edna Violet (SEXTON) Temple Baker!
