THE WESTERN STAR, 19 March 1909

This community was shocked on Monday, when the sad news came that Mrs. Carrie Stark Bunyard, had died at 3 a.m. on that day, at her home near Coats. On Tuesday the body was brought to Coldwater and laid to rest in the Coldwater cemetery. Funeral services were conducted at the Presbyterian church and were in charge of Rev. I. W. Bailey of the Baptist church. A large number of the neighbors and friends of the family was present at the funeral, thus evidencing the esteem by all who knew her. A peculiar sense of sadness was visible on every face, for all felt that a good friend was gone. Deceased was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Stark, who are among the early settlers and most highly
esteemed citizens of this county. On July 24, 1907, she was married to A. M. Bunyard. The young couple moved to a ranch near Coats and had an ideally happy home. At the time of her death, Mrs. Bunyard lacked but 25 days of being 23 years old. She was born in this county and had always lived here. Everybody who knew her was her friend, for she was kind to all and a faithful daughter and wife. The infant, for which Mrs. Bunyard gave her life, did not live and was buried with the mother. To all the bereaved relatives we quote the words of the Master,

"Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted."
