THE WESTERN STAR, 21 June 1907
Obituary of ALICE C. OSBOURN

This community was shocked on last Saturday morning to learn of the sudden death of Mrs. O.M. Osbourn at her home in this city. It was not known, even, that she was sick, for she arose on Saturday morning in her
usual health and went about her household duties. About 10 a.m., however, she complained of feeling quite ill. The husband, who was working a few blocks away, was called; also a physician, but within a few minutes life was extinct, the immediate cause of death being a heart trouble.

Alice C. Sebring was born in Indiana-co., Penn., on November 17, 1878. When about 6 years of age she moved with her parents to Kansas. On July 27, 1898, at Lasit, Kans., she was married to Owen M. Osbourn. Two children - Brice, aged 8, and Bernice, aged 5, were born to the union, and they, with the husband and other relatives, are left in sad bereavement. J.T. Sebring, father of the deceased, moved from Clay Center, Kans., to this city so that he might be near his daughter, and to him the bereavement is peculiarly sad. Six brothers survive, their names and adresses being as follows: Jesse C. Sebring, Kansas; Wm. W., Oklahoma; Chas. F., Boulder, Colo., Frank E., Johnson-co., Kans.; John T., Pueblo, Colo.; Harry W., Arkansas.

Deceased was in every sense a good woman, faithful wife and loving mother. At the time of her death she was 28 years, 6 months and 28 days of age. Funeral services were held at the M.E. church at 3:30 p.m. on
Sunday, the pastor, Rev. W.T. Ward, preaching the sermon. The floral offerings were numerous and beautiful. Interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery.
