Ella Harper Obituary
Clark County Clipper, June 10, 1898
Mrs. Ella Harper wife of Emmet Harper departed this life at their
home in Clark county, Thursday, June 2nd, 1898, after a lingering illness of
many months. Deceased was 28 years old, she leaves a husband and three
Mrs. Harper brought his wife to this county from near Harper, Missouri last
March in the hope that she might recover her health. For a while she improved,
but finally like all who suffer with consumption, the reaction set in and the
end was hastily reached.
The husband and father with the little ones have the sympathy of the entire
Card of Thanks.
I desire to express my sincere thanks to the friends who so kindly assisted
us during the sickness and death of my wife. Being comparatively strangers here
the kind sympathy expressed and the many kindness shown are all more than could
reasonably have been expected, and will always be a fond remembrance to me.
