THE WESTERN STAR, 7 August 1908
Obituary of SARAH A .WARD

At 9:15 p.m. on Tuesday, August 4, 1908, Mrs. Sarah A. Ward, answered the call of the Death Angel at her home six miles west of this city. She had been sick for nine months. A complication of diseases which terminated in dropsy and finally in cancer of the breast was the cause of her sickness and death. Through all her long sickness, she bore her suffering with remarkable patience and fortitude. Scarcely ever was she heard to complain. The best of medical treatment and the constant watchfulness and helpfulness of loving friends proved unavailing in restoring her health. She became unconscious on Sunday and her death was calm and peaceful.

Mrs. Ward's marriage to William Thomas Ward occurred in Indiana on May 21, 1871. Mr. and Mrs. Ward moved from Morgan county, Indiana to Chase
county, Kansas, in the year 1879. In 1897, the husband died. In the spring of 1901, Mrs. Ward and her family moved to Comanche county, and continued to make this their home.

Deceased was born in North Carolina on September 27, 1857. She was, therefore, at the time of her death nearly 57 years old. A daughter, Vel Dora, died on September 3, 1876, and a son, John Isaac, died in this
county on November 25, 1904. Two sons, Wm. B. and Ollie, and two daughters, Callie and Florence, survive and are residents of this county.

Mrs. Ward was held in high esteem by all who knew her. She was a faithful wife and mother, a good friend to all, and in her life exemplified the highest type of patience and of service for her loved ones. The body was taken yesterday to Staffordville, Chase county, where it will be laid beside that of the deceased husband.
