THE WESTERN STAR, 24 February 1894
Obituary of TESSIE M. CROW

Word reached this city last Saturday of the long expected death of Tessie Crow. Her suffering has been of long duration and it is probable that death was no unwelcome visitor. The entire community condole with
the bereaved family. From the Alva "Pioneer" we take the following:

Died, at the home of her parents in Alva, Oklahoma, at 7 o'clock a.m. last Sunday, February 11th, Miss Tessie M. Crow, daughter of T. J. and L. E. Crow. The deceased was born in northwest Missouri, Knox county, June 17, 1876. She lived with her parents at Coldwater, Kansas, nine years.

From her earliest years, Tessie was a very loving child, the light and joy of the home. She was not only affectionate in the family circle, but also among her young associates, where she was the center of attraction.

She was a good singer and often sang in church choirs. Her life was a blessing to those around. Knowing her end was drawing near, she expressed a willingness to go, her only regret being a parting with her parents, her brother and her friends. She was buried in Alva cemetery. The bereaved family have the sincere sympathy of their many friends. The burial services were conducted by Rev. Alfred Connet.

"She hath gone in the spring time of life,
Ere her sky had been dimmed by a cloud,
While her heart with the rapture of love was yet rife,
And the loving who loved her so well,
Like a dream of the night she hath flown,
And the earth now receives to its bosom its trust -
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust."
