DEATH CALLS MRS. KIMBALL
A Former Resident of Worthington to her Reward in the Great Beyond
The following clipped from an Oklahoma paper is an account of the death of a
former resident of this city, for which article we are indebted to a friend:
Guthrie, Oklahoma, August 31, 1909.
After several months of ill health, Mrs. Iva Belle Kimball, wife of L.E.
Kimball, passed away at her home at 821 East Noble, yesterday afternoon at 5
Mrs. Kimball was one of the pioneers of Guthrie, coming here with her husband
about twenty years ago, and has been a resident of the city ever since. She was
before her marriage, Miss Iva Belle Ames, and was born in Bowling Green, Ohio,
June 9, 1855; and was married to L.E. Kimball in Worthington, Minn., October 2,
1877, removing to this city in 1889.
No person was more respected by the people with whom she come in contact than
was the deceased. She was possessed of those traits of character that made her a
friend of every one who knew her. She was kind hearted and charitable, ever
ready to do a kind act and always had a good word for every one. Her kind words
and many good deeds will be missed by many in this city.
Mrs. Kimball was a devout Christian and lived her religion in her every day
life, and when death came she was ready, feeling that she had fulfilled her
mission on earth and was ready to enter into her reward. She leaves a husband,
two daughters, Mrs. Charles E. Billingsley and Mrs. George H. Willis, of Guthrie
and one son, Willard, who is employed at Kansas City, but was at home when death
No arrangements have yet been made for the funeral.
