Hettie Ann (Haines) Stoner

Death of Mrs. John A. Stoner

Hettie Ann Haines, daughter of David and Jemima Haines, was born in Tiffin, Ohio, September 27, 1842, and passed away at her home in Larned, May 30, 1929, at the age of 86 years, 8 months and three days. She was united in marriage March 25, 1862, to Mr. John Alexander Stoner, who died in 1910. To this union were born three children: Raleigh G., who died in 1905; Jesse Lee, who died in 1912; and Mrs. Mertie Ammerman, who resides at the family home in Larned. The family moved from Tiffin, Ohio, to Larned in August, 1878, residing on a farm northeast of town for several months, then moved to the city where they have since resided.
Mrs. Stoner was converted to the Christian faith when a very young girl, and united with the Presbyterian church when coming to Larned. During her early pioneer days she was a very devoted and active worker. On account of her failing health she had been unable to leave the house much in recent years, but was always interested in the present day affairs and was eager to converse with friends on current events. During her years of failing health she was a patient sufferer and always had a smile and a witty remark for all who came. Her last illness was of a month’s duration. She had a fall five weeks ago and the shock was so great to her she never recovered from its effects.
In addition to her daughter, who has cared devotedly for her mother during her declining years, Mrs. Stoner is survived by two grandsons: Mr. Frank Stoner, of New York City; Mr. Lloyd Stoner, of Liberal, Kans., two granddaughters, Mrs. Ruth Slaybaugh, of Parsons, Kansas; Miss Marjorie Stoner, of Long Beach, California; and one great granddaughter, Marjorie Louise Stoner, of Liberal, Kansas.
Funeral services were held at the family home last Sunday afternoon, and were conducted by Rev. J. C. Everett. Interment was in the Larned cemetery.
