Mabel Ethel (Smith) Barkley

Died: Mrs. C.W. Barkley died last Wednesday, Feb. 20, 1901, at Atica, Kansas. She had been in poor health for some time and about six weeks ago was removed to Attica, the home of her parents.

For several weeks she suffered intensely with remarkable patience.

Funeral services were held at Kiowa, conducted by Rev. J.W. Dibbens.

Mabel Ethel Smith was the daughter of Rev. and Mrs. J. Hamlin Smith. At the age of nine years she was converted and united with the U.B. church. Later she transferred her membership to the M.E. church in which she was an earnest worker until her death at the age of 28 years and 23 days.

She was recently married to C.W. Barkley, of this city. The sorrowing husband and parents have the sincere sympathy of everybody in their great loss.
