The Coryells were former citizens of Medicine Lodge and were valued and esteemed citizens among us, about eight years. Mrs. Coryell was a noble Christian woman and was a blessing to her community and friends. Her death brings feelings of profound sadness but we all rejoice to know that she has entered into the joys of an eternal reward.
