THE WESTERN STAR, 11 March 1921
Obituary of ROSS COOPER
Succumbed to Pneumonia in a Dodge City Hospital Early Tuesday Morning.

After a brief illness, resulting from pneumonia, Ross Cooper, son of Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Cooper of this city, died in the Pine Hospital in Dodge City, Kans., at 7:45 a.m., on last Tuesday, March 8, 1921, aged 22 years and 17 days. He went to Dodge City about the first of last October and secured work in the Santa Fe machine shops in that city. He was making good in that position and had won the confidence of his employers
because of his industry and steady habits. He was a regular at the Baptist Sunday school in Dodge City and was vice president of the I. X. L. class. On Sunday February 27, when he returned from Sunday school he
was seized with a severe chill. His condition became a little alarming, and on the following day he entered the hospital and there received the best medical treatment available. Pneumonia soon developed, however, and
the disease made rapid inroads on his strength, finally developing into a critical condition. He passed away, as stated, on Tuesday morning, surrounded by his mother and his brothers and sisters, who had arrived a day or two before. The body was brought to this city on Tuesday for burial.

Funeral services were conducted from the First Christian church in this city at 2:30 p.m., on Thursday, the pastor, Rev. J. T. Wheeler, being in charge. The message brought by the pastor was one of comfort and of spiritual uplift. Interment was in the Coldwater cemetery.

Herbert Ross Cooper was born in Nebo, Illinois, on February 17, 1899. In 1905 he came west with his parents and settled on a farm near Lookout, Okla. Later the family moved to Coldwater and here they continued to make their home. His father died in a Wichita hospital a few years ago. Ross attended our city schools and was a good student. He proved at all
times to be industrious, honorable and dependable, and in his associations he had won the esteem of all who knew him. The news of his death brings a deep sense of sadness to his friends, and a great bereavement to all the relatives. To them the sincere sympathy of the
entire community goes out at this time.

Deceased is survived by his mother and by three sisters and three brothers, as follows: Mrs. Harry Hackney of Lookout, Okla.; Mrs. Fred Robbins and Mary Fern Cooper of Coldwater; also Verne and George Cooper
of Coldwater and Robert Asa Cooper, now of Peabody, Kans.
