Obituary – Franklin Joseph Avery

Funeral services for Frank J. Avery were held last Friday from the First Christian church in Larned, conducted by Rev. C. J. Miller, of Hutchinson, and interment was in the Larned cemetery.
Franklin Joseph Avery was born near Chillicothe, in Livingston county, Missouri, January 3, 1891. He came to Kansas with his parents in November, 1905, and grew to manhood in Pawnee county.
May 28th, 1912, he was united in marriage to Mabel Vera Thompson. Of this union, two children, Glenda and Leslie, survive their father.
Franklin Avery was a man of many sterling traits of mind and heart. His attractive personality had endeared him to a large circle of friends, by whom his death is deeply mourned. He had been an invalid for the past nine months and the end was not unexpected. He departed this life October 1st, at the age of thirty-eight years, eight months and twenty-eight days.
He leaves to mourn his death his sorrowing wife, two children, Glenda and Lesley, aged 16 and 13 years; his mother, Mrs. Maggie Avery of Larned; four brothers, William H., Freeman and Samuel of Larned, and Bryan, of Garden City; one sister, Mrs. Oscar McComas of Larned, and many friends.
