VANARSDALL

Thursday night, after several weeks of suffering from a complication of diseases, death laid his hand upon Miss Cornelia VanArsdall at her home on  College Street in this city. She had been for a long time a member of the Christian church and had lived faithfully according to the Master’s teaching. She was of a retiring disposition, a woman who loved her home and her friends, big hearted, hospitable and thoughtful of others, and she will be greatly missed by those nearest and dearest with whom she was content to spend her life. The funeral service was held at her home Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock, conducted by her pastor, Rev. E. B. Bourland, assisted by Rev. M. S. Clark, of the Methodist church and she was laid to rest in the family lot in Spring Hill Cemetery beneath a wealth of flowers, sent by sympathetic friends of the family. None will miss her more sadly than the mother whom she leaves, whose constant companion she has been. The brothers and sisters who survive are Messrs. J. F., John I., Muscoe, E. Buford and D. P. VanArsdall, all of this city; Mrs. Thomas VanArsdall, Mrs. Abe Sharp and Mrs. Margaret Owens, of Wichita, Kansas; Mrs. J. B. Anderson, of Chanute, Kansas, and Miss Minnie VanArsdall, of this place.
