Obituary  (Oct. 3, 1940) (Clark County Clipper)
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 through
With good or ill, with false and true;
And as the blessed angels turn
   The pages of our years,
God grant they read the good with smiles,
And blot the ill with tears.
