THE SQUARE DEALER, SHATTUCK, OKLAHOMA
JULY 15, 1909
MRS. VIOLA WILLIAMS DEAD
Mrs. Viola Williams, who has been seriously ill of tuberculosis, died Sunday evening at 10:30 o’clock, at her home near Alexandra. Mrs. Williams came to this section with her husband the latter part of last March, from northern Missouri, hoping the change in climate would improve her health, and she experienced much relief in this locality, but the disease was too far advanced and death resulted Sunday evening. Mrs. Williams was 28 years old. The remains were buried in the I. O. O. O. F. cemetery here Monday afternoon.
Mrs. Williams, wife of C. F. Williams departed this life Sunday July 11. The writer conducted a short funeral service at the grave July 12-at 6 p. m. She has been suffering long with that dreaded disease, consumption. Just why she must go from us at the age of 28 years, we may not understand but we can only leave these things in the hands of a merciful God who doeth all things well. She leaves a husband three children and a host of friends to mourn her loss, but surely none will miss her so much as her dear children, but their loss is her Eternal gain. Having lived a faithful Christian life she has gone where sorrow never comes.
"Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord yea, saith the spirit, they may rest from their labor and their works do follow them." --Rev- 14:13. T. A. Butler
