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 o'clock.

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 came.

No arrangements have yet been made for the funeral.
