Mrs. Harry Thompson Dead

Grace Una Thompson

The body of Grace Una Thompson, wife of Harry Thompson, was brought here for burial Tuesday, November 6th. The funeral was held at the Christian church, conducted by Rev. G. W. Branham, pastor of the Baptist church, at 2 o'clock p.m. yesterday. The home of the family is Garden City, Kansas, but Mrs. Thompson died at Beaver, Oklahoma, while visiting her parents. Her ailment was septic poisoning and she was sick only three days.

The sorrowing husband is a son of the late M. C. Thompson, a former resident of Medicine Lodge. Mr. and Mrs. Thompson were married at Wellington, August 18, 1906. Four small children are left motherless by her death, the oldest being eight years of age and the youngest 19 months. The deceased's maiden name was Grace Dow. She was 31 years of age.

Mr. Thompson departed yesterday. His future plans have not yet been determined. His Medicine Lodge friends sympathize very deeply in his especially sad ordeal.
