Her death takes from this community one of the finest characters among us. We have felt her comforting spirit and enjoyed her loyal hospitality. From her heart, she radiated the influence of a vivid personality. Funeral services were conducted Friday afternoon, June 2, at the Okla. Union Church by Elder Kenneth Turner and Elder T. Farmer of Granby, Mo., and the remains were laid to rest in the family cemetery, under the direction of the Koon funeral service. - Harriet A. Overton, age 22, married Samuel A.
