Sorenson, Mamie (28 MAY 1891 - 16 MAY 1914)

(Ft. Scott, Kansas Tribune)

Miss Mamie Sorenson, who has made her home with the family of Robt. B. Barr for about three years, passed away at Mercy Hospital this afternoon at 2 o'clock of typhoid fever, following an illness of a couple of months. The deceased had really not been in good health for a year. Fever came upon her after an attack of rheumatism. She had been taken to the country about two weeks ago to recuperate and while at the home of Mr. Holmes north of Fulton typhoid symptoms developed and she was brought to the hospital, where she was given every care that could be suggested, but her conditions was such that the patient could not yield to medical treatment. Miss Sorenson's father, until last fall, lived west of Fulton for years and was a thrifty farmer. Miss Sorenson, with her two sisters lived in town here, one sister with the family of C. D. Sample and the other now with Mr. Barr's family. The deceased would have been 23 years old on May 28, 1914, and was born in Phillips, Wis. Her death is lamentable to many Fort Scott people who had met her in the Barr home. She was an unusually lovable character, faithful in every respect and in time of need in case of sickness proved herself a shining star. It is regrettable that such a worthy life as hers should have ended just when it was in the fullest.

Her father was called here Wednesday from Dorchester, Clark County, Wis., and together with her two sisters, were at the bedside when the end came. The deceased was a member of the Methodist Church of Fulton. She is survived by a bereaved father, step mother, two sisters and three brothers.

The remains will be taken to Dorchester for interment beside those of her mother who preceded her to the grave some years ago.

A short funeral service will be held at the home of Mr. Barr at 12:30 tomorrow, conducted by Rev. Scott of the First Methodist Church, and the remains will be taken to Dorchester on the 1:25 Frisco train tomorrow.
