OBITUARY - EDITH (TEALE) KING

residence Wednesday, Feb. 21, 1900 of consumption, aged 22 years, 4 months and 21 days. Her life was one of happiness and
usefulness, her friends were many, yet she was called to leave all and go to that bright and happy home to join her mother
who had gone before. She was a devout Christian, a member of the Presbyterian Church and organist of the choir at that
church until her health failed her. On Wednesday Aug. 9, 1899, she was married to NELSON KING, but their married life was
to be of short duration and on Friday, Feb. 23, she was laid to rest enrobed in her wedding garments. The funeral was held
at the home on Friday afternoon. Rev. E.C. Newland, of Promise City, who performed the marriage ceremony, preached the
funeral sermon. Music was furnished by a select choir. The Rebekah Lodge of which organization the deceased was a member,
assisted in the ceremonies.
She leaves a father in California, her husband, a sister, J. M. CULKINS, of Mena, Ark. her brothers, E. W., A. L. and E. J.
TEALE, of this city, the latter being her twin brother, and numerous relatives and friends to mourn her loss.
The sympathy of all the friends are with these in their hour of trial, and may the peace of God be with them and comfort
A. H. TEALE and family, of Kellerton, Mrs. Tom TEALE, of Leon, Bert TEALE, Claire SMITH and wife, of Lamoni, were in
