Died: "Death of Mrs. Simpson" - The Pueblo Chiefton (Colorado) pays the following beautiful tribute to the memory of Mrs. R. A. Simpson, personally known to a large number of the readers of the Independent, and highly esteemed by al who knew her for her many good qualities of head and heart: "After a few days’ illness the lovely young wife of Mr. R. A. Simpson, of East Pueblo, passed peacefully and quietly away. During her last illness Mrs. Simpson was attended with great devotion by Dr. Slemmons and everything possible was done to prolong her useful and happy life. As the fact that death was inevitable became apparent she was so informed by Dr. Slemmons. She showed no fear but quietly said, "If it is God’s will I am ready." Around her dying bed stood her mother, her husband and three of his brothers. She bade them each a tender and most affecting farewell, and before her death offered up fervent prayers for each of them that the loving Father in Heaven might bless them and prepare them to meet her in the heavenly home into which she was so soon to enter. She died quietly and peacefully and without any fear. Her last request was that her mother and husband should take good care of the little girl only three weeks old, whom she was leaving motherless. Mrs. Simpson was a true Christian, and following out the precepts of her Divine Master, she had endeared herself to all with whom she came in contact. The bereaved husband and sorrowing mother have the heartfelt sympathy of a host of friends who knew and loved their dear one during her bright young life. The remains of Mrs. Simpson have been embalmed and will be shipped to Fort Scott this morning."
