Reba May Ricketts was born in Jerseyville, Illinois, on July 28, 1894, and died at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Ricketts, near Coldwater, Kansas, at 7:15 p.m. on Sunday, May 6, 1917, aged 22 years, 9
months and 8 days. From Jerseyville the family moved to Springfield, Illinois, from there to East St. Louis, and then to Kansas in 1909, and here the family has continued to live. In the home, Reba was always an
obedient daughter and a kind and affectionate sister.

She was converted at the New Home school house on January 22, 1914, and her life had, from that time, been a consistent one in all that pertained to her Christian
experience. On one of the fly leaves in her Bible, she had written, referring to the occasion of her conversion, "Taking the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior all the days of my life." She leaves her parents, a brother and a sister to mourn her loss.

Funeral services were conducted from the home, 9 miles northwest of this city, at 2 o'clock p.m. on Tuesday and were attended by a large number of friends. Rev. J. B. Handy of the Methodist Episcopal church was in charge of the services. Burial was in the Greensburg cemetery.
