Edwin Gurney Matthews was born in Arnett, Oklahoma November 3, 1911, and died at the home of his father Lord's Day morning, July 14, at 3:50 aged eight months and eleven days.
While little Edwin was with us only a few short months, yet his little life will be a bright spot in the memory of father, sisters and brothers as well as a host of friends and relatives of the family.
Our loss is his gain as he has gone home to Jesus and to that best earthly friend his mother who died last November.
The family has the sympathy of neighbors and friends.
Funeral services at the Christian Church at 4 P. M. conducted by the pastor, W. G. Azbill and the large attendance was a partial demonstration of the sympathy of neighbors and friends.
Misses Eunice Fowler, Louise Kincaid, Bernice Vandeventer, Mable Osban, Mildred and Mariam Dunlavy acted as pallbearers. Burial at the Arnett cemetery.
