THE WESTERN STAR, 11 March 1893

Died, of consumption, on Thursday evening, March 2, 1893, at the home of her parents, Lillie Rose Loop, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Loop of this city. The deceased was born, August 23, 1872, and was 20 years and 6 months old at the time of her dissolution. She possessed not only a good, strong and sprightly mind, but also many noble qualities of head and heart. She united with the Christian church two years ago at Rolla, Missouri, and has ever since lived the good life of a Christian. "There is but a stop between life and death" and from the sunshine of happy associations she is called to pass over the valley of the shadow of death. But there is "rest for the weary" under the ever blooming trees of Paradise.

Miss Loop had been a sufferer of consumption for more than two years and came here about a year ago with her parents in hopes that her condition might be benefited. She continued to grow weaker, instead of the desired
change, and at 8 o'clock on the afore mentioned evening her soul passed to a repose in the sweet sleep of life eternal. Her sickness and death elicited the sympathies of all and the members of various religious societies showed her the kindest considerations of heart and deed. Many kind friends conveyed her body to the silent chambers of the grave, Saturday morning last, Rev. Newby conducting the funeral ceremonies.
