Mrs. E C Varner Passes Tuesday

After a lingering illness of over six months Mrs. Ona Carr Varner died Tuesday afternoon at her home, 1030 State St.

She was born March 22, 1871 near Gallatin, Tennessee, the daughter of D M and Nancy Carr. She came with her parents to Kansas at the age of 11 years and settled in Butler county where she has spent the remainder of her life.

Ona Carr was married to Edd Varner September 23, 1894. They recently enjoyed their 50th wedding anniversary together. Six children were born of whom three have preceded her in death. Besides her husband, Edd Varner, she is survived by three children, Ralph, Cecil and Velma Dockum and five, grandchildren. She is also survived by two sisters, Mrs. R L Hanes of Shawnee, Oklahoma, Mrs. C E Naylor Dundee, Texas and one brother J A Carr of Frederick, Oklahoma and other relatives.

She had been a member of Methodist church since early childhood. Funeral services are to be held Thursday, 3:00 p m from the Dunsford chapel in Augusta.

Ona Varner's pleasures and interest in life were most enjoyed through devotion to her family and home life. In her passing, another Butler county pioneer has gone from our midst.

Beloved by her family, her neighbors and friends, her parting has caused a loss that cannot be replaced.
