Obituary (Oct. 3, 1940) (Clark
Ethel N. Wibright was born in Fort
Cobb, Oklahoma, May 12th, 1910, and came to Ashland with her parents when
eight years of age. She entered Ashland schools and graduated with the class
of 1931. After finishing her school work she engaged in such employment as
she could obtain. She was especially adept in home work and the thoroughness
of her work is highly commended by those who were fortunate enough to obtain
her services. She was taken sick a few weeks ago and unexpectedly died in St.
Anthony's hospital last Wednesday evening.
Ethel is survived by her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Wibright: her 5 year old daughter, Delores Gene Wibright:
four sisters-Mrs. Hazel Dalton, Ashland, Kansas; Mrs. Thelma Cline,
Protection, Kansas; Katherine and Geraldine of the home; three brothers Harry,
of Dodge City; Edgar and Gerald of the home. Three sisters and two brothers
have preceded her in death.
Our lives are albums written
With good or ill, with false and
And as the blessed angels turn
The pages of our years,
God grant they read the good
And blot the ill with tears.
