THE WESTERN STAR, 4 April 1913
Obituary of LOIS EDMONDS

At 10:10 o'clock yesterday evening, April 3, 1913, Mrs. D. F. Edmonds, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. G. W. Crites, in this city, after an illness which had extended through about six weeks. She had been a
sufferer from a complication of liver and kidney trouble. All that loving hands and medical skill could do was not sufficient to stay the encroaches of the disease. Her suffering was borne with patience and she seemed to have no fear of death.

Deceased, whose maiden name was Lois Dunlap, was born in Princeton, Illinois, and was 54 years old on the 22nd day of last February. On June 12, 1865, in Chase county, she was married to David F. Edmonds. The
family moved from Chase county to Sedgwick county, where they lived for a few years, coming from there to Comanche county in March 1876, and thus becoming among the very first settlers in this county. They
continued almost uninterruptedly, to make the eastern part of this county their home.

Mrs. Edmonds was a faithful and devoted wife and mother, kind to all and a good neighbor, and was much esteemed by all. For several years she had been a member of the U. B. church. The husband, four sons and five daughters survive, and to them the sympathy of all goes out in this their hour of sad bereavement. Funeral services will be conducted at the home this afternoon, Rev. A. A. Hankins of the M. E. church being in charge. Interment will be made in the Coldwater cemetery.
