The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1926

OBITUARY - MRS. JOHN RICHARDSON.

Mrs. Bessie RICHARDSON, daughter of Fleming and Sarah BUTLER, was born July 19, 1878, in Harrison County, Missouri, and died December 1, 1926, at eight o'clock a. m., at the age of 48 years, four months and 11 days. She was married to Mr. John RICHARDSON February 5th, 1902. To this union two sons were born, Olin F. and Glen G.

Mrs. RICHARDSON was converted at the age of sixteen and united with the Baptist church at Lotts Grove. A few years afterward she unied with the Evangelical church. She was a devoted christian, never afraid, having often expressed a desire, even praying for the end. her only earthly concern was for those she was leaving behind.

Sunday night, realizing that the end was near, she called the family to her bedside and asked that they might meet her in Heaven. Monday afternoon she asked her aunt, Mrs. Dave CAIN, to offer prayer for all those present.

Those left to mourn are her father, stepmother, husband, two sons, one sister, Mrs. W. A. DEVERS, and one brother, George BUTLER, of Denver, Colo., and three grandchildren. Her mother, two sisters, Ruth BUTLER and Eunice NELSON, and two brothers, Oren and Orton, preceded her in death.

Mrs. RICHARDSON, having been a true wife, mother and neighbor, will be sadly missed in the home and community.

Funeral services were conducted by Rev. G. S. CRAMER on Thursday at the Lotts Grove Baptist church at one o'clock. Interment was made in Lotts Grove Cemetery.
