The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1917
May 23, 1917 -- Lois Lavon SIPLE, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. SIPLE, was born Aug. 30, 1900, at Kellerton and departed
this life at Omaha, Nebraska, May 13th at the age of 16 years, 9 months, and 17 days. About a year ago she was stricken
with appendicitis from which she did not permanently recover. Her last sickness extended over a period of three months.
All that loving hands and medical skill could do was done for her. Lavon was a beautiful girl and had a gentle and loving
disposition that won many friends for herself. She received many beautiful flowers as token of the friendship and high
esteem in which she was held. The Kellerton high school in which she would have graduated next year, was dismissed in her
honor and attended in a body. Ten of her classmates and girl friends acted as pall bearers and flower girls. The funeral
services were held at the M. E. Church Tuesday at 2:30 conducted by Rev. MITCHELL and the body was laid to rest in the
Maple Row Cemetery. The family has the sympathy of the entire community in this time of sadness.
NOTE: Lois Lavon's father
