Mrs. Maggie Gibson

Died: Mrs. Maggie Gibson, wife of Wm. Gibson, died at her home about 10 miles north of this city on Tuesday morning, August 9, 1898, at 2 o'clock.

She was taken with quick consumption last spring and death was not unexpected. Burial services were held at Highland cemetery yesterday at 4 o'clock p.m., Rev. W.F. Cook officiating. Memorial services will be held later.

The deceased was a daughter of Wm. Doles and was married twice. Her first husband, Jerry Zeilor, was a railroad man and met his death in an accident about nine years ago. She was married to Mr. Gibson about two years ago, who, with a boy by her first husband, survive.

Mrs. Gibson was a lady of kindly disposition and friendly bearing, a dutiful wife and a loving mother.

To the bereaved husband and the orphan boy, the sincerest sympathy of the community is extended.
