The entire Arnett community was wrapped in sorrow, Friday morning, September 28th, when the word was passed among the people that Mrs. Hannah Denton, has passed away and the Denton home, three miles east of Arnett.
Mrs. Denton, was born at Hutchinson, Kansas, May 30th, 1893, and died at the age of 30 years, 3 months and 28 days.
She was married to Osborn C. Denton on February 25, 1908, to this union were born six children, Pauline, Joe, Sophia, Wilson, Ina and O. C. Jr.
Besides the husband and these children, she is survived by a mother Mrs. J. W. McCormick and one sister Mrs. Maggie Jenkins, of Cochise, Arizona.
Mrs. Denton was one of the finest women, kindest mothers and best neighbors we have ever known. Her sweet face made sunshine in a shady place. If strangers felt the charm of her rare courtesy and joyous, sunny temperament, how much more so the member of her own household upon whom she lavished all the sweet earnestness and careful culture of her mind and nature. Strong and potent was the influence of this loving heart which gave of its gifts so generously. The spirit of her love was not weakness but strength. Gently, almost unconsciously, it coerced those coming in contact with it to strive for if not to attain the realization of her high idea. Life will never be the same to the many friends or to those loved ones who are left to mourn the departure from this life of this good woman, while those who were nearest to her will long for her with unuterable longings--long for the mother's counsel and advice, and a wife's gentle and loving sympathy. She was a woman of strong character: patient, loving and self-sacrificing.
Funeral services were conducted at the home Saturday afternoon by Rev. S. A. Smith, pastor of the Nazarine Church of Woodward, and interment made in the Harmon Cemetery.
