Source: Crawfordsille Daily Journal 9 Nov 1918 p 1
Mrs. Anna Cox was called to Indianapolis last Tuesday night by a telegram announcing a sudden turn for the worse in the condition of her daughter, Miss Mary Elizabeth Cox who had been ioll for 10 days with influenza and pneumonia. Death ensed at 5 o'clock Wednesday morning just a few hours after the mother reached the bedside.
Miss Cox was born in East Lynn, Ill, 22 years ago and spent part of her childhood in Crawfordsivlle, completing the first year of her high school here. Since then she has been away at school and took the last two years of her high school course at Shortridge, Indianapolis where she graduated in 1916.
For two years she has been in the nurses' training school at the Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis, and would have completed her course there next June. She was a great favorite with all the doctors and nurses who all felt that she had very unusual talent for the work of her chosen profession. She received every attention that medical skill and loving care could provide but in vain. The death occurred at the hospital and the funeral was in charge of Rev. Farmer. The pall bearers were nurses and interment was in Crown Hill cemetery, Indianapolis. Miss Cox was a member of the Methodist Church.
Besides her mother she is survived by one brother, Manfred L. Cox, now serving his country in the navy in foreign waters, and three sisters, Miss Mabel Cox, employed by the National Casket Company, Indianapolis, Miss Eunice Cox, a student at Shortride and Mrs. Myrl Perkins of Akron, Ohio. - kbz
