Young Lady Is Dead, A Victim Of Tuberculosis

Lola Mable, oldest daughter of Charles and Rebecca Lindsey, died at the home of her parents Wednesday, January 2, 1924. She was born in McDonough County, July 11, 1898. At the time of her death she was aged 25 years 5 months and 22 days. With the exception of six years of her life spent with her aged grandmother, who preceded her in death, she has lived in the parental home.

The deceased became a member of the church of the Brethren in Dec., 1916, during a series of meetings, conducted by Rev. Rufus P. Bucher, since which time she has been a faithful member.

Besides her parents, she is survived by one brother Kenneth, and a sister Blanch and a host of relatives and friends. Two brothers, Raymond E., and Lloyd A., who preceded her only a little more than a year ago and a sister, Oddessa Ferne have gone on before.

Mable was of a cheerful disposition and bore her suffering with marked courage and patience.

The Golden Gates opened wide,
A gentle voice said, “come,”
And angels from the other side,
Welcomed our loved one home.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the Woodland church, conducted by Rev. Chas.Walters, assisted by S. G. Bucher. Interment in the cemetery near by.
