Barber County Kansas
Died: Avis Caroline Axline, oldest child of Mr. and Mrs. L.M. Axline, died Wednesday evening, November 9, 1898, of congestion of the liver.
She was bedfast less than twelve hours, although she complained several days. The funeral services were held from the family residence on Thursday.
Avis was a bright little girl nearly eleven years of age and will be missed sadly by her playmates and young friends. The fond parents have sustained a loss such as can only be comprehended by father and mother and their grief finds a sympathetic responsive chord among all who know what it means to forever part with loved ones.
Dear little Avis is gone, but her gentleness of disposition and her devotion to father and mother and brother and sister will ever live in the memory of all.
