THE WESTERN STAR, 25 November 1893
Obituary of EMMA WHITE

Mrs. Emma White entered into her heavenly rest at two o'clock of the afternoon of November 8th, 1893. She was born in Christian county, Illinois, in 1862; was married to Henry White in 1887; lived 8 miles
northwest of Coldwater, Kansas. She united with the Baptist church when quite young and lived a Christian life. In 1891 she was taken with la grippe and after all was done to cure her that medicine and help could
offer, it was determined consumption had brought her where no cure could be found.

In the two years of suffering she was cheerful and constant in thought and care for others. She leaves 3 children, her husband, a sister, two brothers, parents and many friends to mourn her loss. But she has gained
her inheritances in a heavenly land, with kindly sympathy or affectionate interest she followed the fortunes for weal or woe of her friends. With rare thoughtfulness she remembered whom others forgot. It was a grievous trial for her to give up doing for others, but she showed her love and interests in the objects which had ever filled her life; so good a life must lead to a happy death; so useful a life must have cherishing memories; so devoted a life must furnish bright example to which many will refer and others will endeavor to imitate. Three days previous to her death she said, "I an hungry for prayer and song; I know my redeemer liveth. The Lord is my Sheperd, I know I shall not want." If we could but hear the singing, As they are singing now, If we could but see the radiance Of the crown on each dear brow, There would be no sign to smother, No hidden tear to flow," None knew her but to love her; none named her but to praise. S. E. Ross.

Another home has been robbed of its crowning glory. Mrs. Henry White has passed to the Great Beyond - that "borne from whence no traveler has yet returned." She died Wednesday, November 9th at 2 o'clock, at her home, 6 miles northwest of Coldwater, surrounded by family and friends. She was truly a good woman, loved and respected by all who knew her. Death came
to her as sleep to a child and she passed quietly into the other world. Her death was caused from consumption, of which dread disease she had been suffering for the past two years. She leaves a husband and three or
four children to mourn her irreparable loss. The funeral services were held at the M. E. church, Wednesday afternoon, Rev. Latham officiating, and the remains laid to rest in the Coldwater cemetery.
