Mrs. Samuel Moose Died Tuesday Night

Passes Away Tuesday Evening After Lingering Illness From Tuberculosis. Funeral Thursday.

Allie MooseMrs. Samuel Moose passed away at her home, seven miles southeast of Astoria Tuesday night at 10 o'clock, aged 40 years, 5 months and 22 days. Death was due to tuberculosis, from which she has been suffering for the past year.

Mrs. Moose was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Reasin Prather, both deceased, and was born in Woodland township July 23, 1877, not far from her late home. She was married Nov. 20, 1898, to Samuel Moose and to them were born four sons, namely, Shelby, Myron, Glenn and Russel, who with the heart-broken father survive to mourn the loss of a tender, loving and true wife and mother. She is also survived by two brothers, William and Upton Prather, and three sisters, Mrs. Lincoln Garton, Mrs. John Davis and Mrs. F. P. Kays.

Since the day Mrs. Moose took sick nothing in medical skill was spared to stay the progress of the fatal disease. Her life was gentle, but like the still waters it was deep.

Mrs. Moose was a member of the U. B. church, also a member of the Eastern Star, Royal Neighbor and Mystic Workers lodges.

The sympathy of the community goes out to the husband, children, brothers and sisters in their sad bereavement.

The funeral services will be held Thursday at the U. B. church in Astoria, on the arrival of the funeral cortege, which will leave the home at 10 o'clock a.m. Rev. James Miller and J. B. Stubblefield will have charge. Interment in the Astoria cemetery. The Eastern Star Chapter will have charge of the ceremonies at the cemetery.
