Death of Miss Flaude Bennyworth

Miss Flaude E. Bennyworth died at her home in this city Wednesday evening, March 20, at 9 o’clock, of tuberculosis. She had been a sufferer for several years, but the acute stage of the disease was not reached until Monday of this week, from which time she failed rapidly, although conscious until within a few hours of her death.

Flaude Ella Bennyworth is the daughter of Mrs. Eva Bennyworth. She was born July 7, 1875, and died March 20, 1907, aged 31 years, 8 months, and 13 days. She leaves her mother, three sisters and two brothers to mourn her death. Her sisters are Mrs. Hiram Jones, Mrs. Solon Burgess and Miss Eva Bennyworth, all of this city. Her brothers are Martin Bennyworth of Larned and Frank Bennyworth of Topeka. They have been unable for two days to reach Frank by wire either at Topeka or Kansas City and at this writing are still unable to get word to him.

Flaude Bennyworth grew to womanhood in this city. She was a member of the Methodist church, and until her health failed an active worker in the young people’s society of that church. Her genial manner and Christian character endeared her to all who knew her. The sympathy of her many friends has gone out to her in her brave struggle with pain and suffering. To those of us who have known her from childhood, through girlhood to young womanhood, her death comes as a personal loss. The sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved mother, sisters and brothers in their time of sorrow, with the assurance that her friends share with them their burden of grief.

The funeral will be held from the house Friday afternoon at 2:30. The services will be conducted by Rev. Wm. Baron of the Methodist church.
