THE WESTERN STAR, 14 April 1916
Obituary of EMMA I. PROCTOR

Mrs. Emma Isabel Proctor died at 8:05 p.m. in the St. Francis hospital in Wichita on last Thursday, April 6, 1916. She was taken to Wichita on Wednesday and underwent a critical surgical operation. The body was
brought to Coldwater on Saturday for burial. Funeral services were held in the M. E. church at 4:30 p.m., the pastor, Rev. Ralph W. Wyrick, being in charge. He was assisted by Rev. J. Bert Smith, pastor of the Baptist church of Wilmore.

Deceased was a sister of Edward Roux of this city. A the time of her death she was 50 years and 9 months of age. She was born in LaSalle-co, Ill., on July 7, 1865. In the fall of 1878 she came with the family to Kansas. She was married in 1891 to Lewis Proctor, who died about 18 years ago while the family lived in Hutchinson. About 4 years ago, Mrs. Proctor and her children moved from Macksville, Kans., to this county.
For a time she made her home with Mr. Roux. A year or so ago she and her family moved to the Carter farm, a few miles south of Wilmore, where they continued to live. The surviving children are: Will, aged 23; Fred,
20, and Kate, 18. They have the sympathy of all in this their sad bereavement.

Mrs. Proctor had, for over 40 years, been afflicted with total deafness, the result of a severe spell of sickness. She endured her affliction patiently. In all respects she was a devoted wife and mother. For a number of years she was a member of the Christian church.
