Georgia M. Dale Daily Obituary

Ashland Clipper, April 22, 1927



Georgia M. Dale, daughter of William and Nellie F. Dale, was born February 20, 1879, at Industry, McDonough county, Illinois, and departed this life April 26, 1927, in Ashland, Kansas, at the age of 48 years, two months and six days.

She moved with her parents to Sumner County, Kansas in 1885, and to Comanche County in 1886.  She was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Frank Daily, November 30, 1898, and lived on their farm in the Lexington neighborhood in Clark County for twenty four years, and moved to Ashland in 1922 so that she could be with her daughter, June, who was in high school.

She was the mother of six children, three of whom proceeded her, two in infancy and their little daughter, Frances, who died of diabetes at the age of eleven years, January 7, 1913.  She had two sisters who preceded her, one in infancy and Mrs. John Moore, of Protection, Kansas, in 1914, leaving four daughters, Mrs. Bair of Minneola, Kansas, Mrs. Ester Culberson of Pampa, Texas, Miss Hazel Moore, who is a Senior in Kansas State Agricultural College and Miss Carol Moore of Stephens College of Columbia, Missouri.

When questioned by the pastor about her future welfare, she stated that she was perfectly ready to go.  A few hours before her death she called the family and a number of friends and gave very wonderful advice to the children.  She also quoted the Scripture from St. John 11:26, "I am the resurrection, and the life," and from chapter 14:2 and 3.,  "I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself."  She was a very true and devoted wife and mother and always did what she could to make her home pleasant for her family.  She was also a member of the Eastern Star Lodge.

She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, three children, Marguerite, Frank Edward, Jr., and June Elizabeth; her mother, Mrs. W. L. Dale of Protection, Kansas; one sister, Mrs. Helen Tinkler of Protection, Kansas; four brothers, Fred J. Dale of Jackson, Wyoming, Ernest S. Dale, Chester W. Dale and Karl S., all of Protection, Kansas, and a host of other relatives and friends.

The funeral service was conducted in the Ashland Methodist Church on Thursday afternoon, April 28, 1927, at 2:30 by Reverend E. S. Corrie and the pastor of the church, Reverend, R. L. Foster, and interment made in the Highland cemetery.
