OBITUARY ~ ARTIE BLANCHE COWELL MATTHEWS

Artie Blanche, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elias Cowell was born in Ringgold county, Iowa January 13, 1878. She lived on a farm east of Maloy until she was ten years of age, when the family moved to Maloy, where she grew to womanhood and was united in marriage to Alfred J. Matthews. To this union was born one living child, Marshall.

On Friday, July 20, she was taken violently ill, and was removed to the hospital in St. Joseph, Mo. where she passed away Sunday, July 22. She leaves to mourn her loss her husband, infant son, father, mother, three brothers, one sister and a host of friends.

In early womanhood she united with the Christian church at Maloy under the ministry of Elder H. E. Van Horn, being one of the charter members of the church. She lived a consistent Christian life, and her influence will live for many years. The sympathy of the entire community is extended to the bereaved family.
