Mrs. Ella Gilchrist Towner

Mrs. Ella Towner of near Lexington in this county departed this life at Brazil, Ind. the 12th. inst.

Deceased was the wife of C. C.

The following is from the Daily Times of Brazil of the 13th:

Mrs. Ella Towner of Lexington, Kansas, died at 10 o'clock yesterday morning in this city, aged 39 years and two days.  She has been ill of tumor for a long time, and recently came to this city in the hope that the change and medical attention of local physicians would bring help.  Despite every effort made even an operation, in which there was but a tiny thread of hope, she grew worse and died.  The deceased was a sister of Mrs. Andrew Spear, Sr., of this city.  She leaves a husband who was with her when the end came, but no children.  The remains will be taken to Lexington, Kansas, tomorrow morning at 1:04.  The funeral will occur there next Tuesday.
