Barber County Kansas
Mrs. Minnie E. Jones died on Tuesday afternoon of last week, June 10, 1902. The Index heard of the death after the forms were locked, too late for our last week's issue. Mrs. Jones was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Owen and made her home with them. She suffered with consumption several years, but she was patient and courageous through it all and when the Master called she was ready to go.
Funeral services were conducted from the residence of her parents on Wednesday, conducted by Elder W. T. McLain, and the remains were laid to rest in Highland cemetery by the side of her daughter, Jessie, who preceded her a year ago.
Her parents, four brothers and a sister are left to mourn her, all of whom request us to extend their most hearty thanks, through the Index, to hosts of friends whose tenderly and willingly cared for the departed one in her sickness.
