Obituary of MRS. E. L. (CHRIST) FRANKLIN
Prairie Home Pickings
Died, last Tuesday morning, March 15th, Mrs. E. L. Franklin, wife of B. F. Franklin, aged thirty-eight
years. Mrs. Franklin had been sick for several months with consumption. The funeral services were conducted by Elder Phillips of Larned, at the residence of the deceased. Elder Phillips also officiated at the grave in the Pawnee Rock cemetery, where the remains were interred. The deceased leaves a husband and five children to mourn the sad loss of wife and mother. Mr. Franklin and Mrs. Christ return thanks to all who so kindly assisted during the many days of sorrow. Mrs. Rebecca Christ, mother of Mrs. Franklin, was at her daughter’s bed-side when she died. Mrs. Franklin was the tenth child Mrs. Christ has buried. Her husband died several years ago. Sweetly and quietly sleepeth our husband, our wife and our children. Then they tuned their golden harps and sung. The work is done. Why should we fear that which will come to all that is. We cannot tell but all is well.
