THE WESTERN STAR, 22 November 1912
Death Claims Mrs. L. M. Taylor.

A few minutes before 3 o'clock p.m. on last Wednesday, November 20, 1912, Mrs. L. M. Taylor died peacefully at her home one-half mile southwest of this city. For two and a half years she had been a sufferer from lung trouble. During the spring and summer of this year she spent several months in Colorado, but her health continued to gradually fail and about four weeks ago she returned home to spend her remaining days with her family. Everything possible was done to stay the encroaches of the disease (tuberculosis) but to no avail. Gradually her strength ebbed away, until finally the physical body succumbed to the mandates of the Angel of Death. She was conscious to the last. During the few hours preceding her death, she spoke frequently of her nearness to the end of life in the body, and her every utterance there was the note of peace, of resignation and of perfect preparedness for the event of death. Hers was a victorious and a triumphant death.

Ida Lulalia LaMar was born on August 4, 1873, in Hillsboro, Mo. Her age at the time of death was 39 years, 3 months and 16 days. At the age of 14 she moved with her parents to Stafford county, Kansas, where she lived for about 3 years, moving from there to Preston, Pratt county. On June 5, 1889, she was married in Preston to L. M. Taylor. The family moved to this city about 8 years ago and lived here for a while. Moving from here, they made their home in the south for a few years, but returned to Coldwater a couple of years ago and continued to live here. Mrs. Taylor was a devoted wife and mother and through all her life had
exemplified the constant spirit of sacrifice, of patience and of earnest solitude for her beloved ones and friends. She had been a member of the Baptist church since she was 12 years of age. Her life was consistent with the profession she made. The husband and four children survive. The children are; Wayne, aged 16, Howard, aged 13, Marion, aged 11, Mildred, aged 9, and Dale, aged 7. Mrs. Taylor's father, Rev. LaMar, is pastor of the Baptist church in Medford, Ore. Her mother died about 33 years ago.

The funeral services will be held at the Presbyterian church in this city at 3 o'clock this Friday afternoon. Rev. J. S. Moore, pastor of the Baptist church in St. John, Kansas, and the former pastor of the deceased, is expected to be present to preach the funeral sermon. Rev. W. B. Leonard, pastor of the Presbyterian Church in this city, will assist in the services. Interment will be made in the Coldwater cemetery.
