Mrs. Mary E. Kingman died at her home in Thorp, Clark County, Wis. on the 20th day of June 1918 at the age of 70 years and twenty-five days.
Funeral services were from the residence on the 22nd at 2 p.m., being conducted by Rev. George Crow, pastor of the M. E. Church, interment in the Thorp Village Cemetery.
Mrs. Kingman succumbed to an attack of heart trouble after a lingering illness. She leaves to mourn her loss, a husband and six children, Mrs. R. W. Bickerstaff of Cornell, Mrs. W. H.

The deceased was born in Massachusetts May 25, 1848, having come with her parents to Sauk Co. in 1849, where they resided until 1871, when she was united in marriage to William Alonzo Kingman, of Baraboo, after which they came to Chippewa Co., where they resided for many years, moving to Thorp, Wis. in 1897, where they have since made their home.
The pallbearers were John Geiger, J. J. Hayes, T. O. Mosher, H. Leibole, J. Roth and A. Blank.
Mrs. Kingman's presence will be greatly missed both in our church and social life by a wide circle of friends, having been converted to the Methodist faith at a very early age and has ever since been a faithful follower of Christ.
