DEATH CALLS MRS. N. HOLMAN END IS SUDDEN
January 6, 1916-The Oklahoma Leader-Mrs. Ned Holman, wife of the president of the First National Bank, died suddenly at 3:05 o'clock Friday morning at her home, No. 912 East Cleveland Avenue.
News of Mrs. Holman's death caused a distinct shock to the community. She had been ill but two days with pneumonia and at no times was her condition considered grave. The cause of her death was hemorrhage of the brain. She passed away in the arms of her husband. Last night Mrs. Holman was feeling much better and urged her daughter, Miss Dorothy to attend a party. She was resting apparently easy when she awakened and called Mr. Holman. A few moments later she had passed away.
Mrs. Holman was a most estimable woman, and ruing her seven years residence in Guthrie had endeared herself to the community by her manifold graces, goodness of soul and noble traits of heart and mind. She was identified with the active club and social life of the city, an esteemed guest at all functions, an admirable hostess, and withal a loving and helpful wife and kind devoted and indulgent mother. Her home was one of the most hospitable in the city and her gracious manner won for her legions of warm friends.
The Holmans moved to Guthrie about seven years ago from Comanche, Texas and at once became identified with the business and social life of the city. Willie Paine Holman was born on a plantation in Mississippi and spent her girlhood in Comanche Texas, where she was married to Mr. Holman seventeen years ago. She leaves a husband and four children, Dorothy, ages sixteen, Fred, thirteen; Victor, five and Ned. Jr. fourteen months' old; one sister, Mrs. Frank Holmsley, of Ozona, Texas, a stepson and three stepsisters.
The funeral will take place from the late home of the deceased 912 East Cleveland Avenue, at 3:30 o'clock, Saturday afternoon. The interment will be at Summit View. The sympathy of the entire community goes out to Mr. Holman in his sore loss.
