On Oct 17, 1911, she united with the Prairie Chapel Church under the ministry of the Rev. Cash. She was a loyal worker in the different activities of the church, having served as president of the Aid Society for some time. She spared neither time nor energy to make a success of each undertaking. She was united in marriage with Guy Stockdale on Jan 1, 1919. To this union were born 5 children: all at home. They are Harold Guy; George Warren : Verna Marie; Gale Leon and Sandra Louise, who is only one. She had been in poor health for many months. She had been a patient at Lake View Hospital, Danville, Ill for 10 weeks where she had suffered intense pain. All that loving relatives & friends and medical skill could do was done but to no avail. She passed away Friday Nov 15 at 5:20 a.m. at the age of 41 years, 9 months and 27 days. She was a loyal companion and devoted mother. Truly a good neighbor and very dear friend has been called home. Besides the immediate family she leaves her mother, one brother, Merble (?) Wilson and family of Lafayette; one half sister, Mrs. Mary Katherine Cramer of Waynetown and a host of relative and friends who will sadly miss her. - kz
