Death of Mrs. Maggie Cline

After three months of suffering following a stoke of paralysis the first of March, Mrs. G. Polk Cline died at the home of her brother in Fayettesville, Missouri, Saturday morning, June 1st. It has been known for several weeks that she could not recover, much of the time she was unconscious.

Mrs. Cline was stricken early in March and made two trips to Excelsior Springs in the hope of benefiting her health, but at the last trip her physicians told her that there was little hope for her and advised that she come home. Before coming home she went to visit her brother and it was while there that she became so low that she could not be brought home and it was there that she died.

Maggie Ward was born in Warren county, Iowa, May 10, 1853. She was married to G. Polk Cline July 26, 1874, in Davis county, Mo. To them were born four children, two of whom are dead, and two daughters, Maud and Nellie, together with the husband survive her. She leaves three sisters living in Iowa and one brother in Missouri.

The family came to Kansas in 1875 and first located in Great Bend but later went to Rush county and were there during the early hard years. They moved to Larned in 1885 and have lived here since.

Mrs. Cline was a woman of culture, a wide reader and a valued leader in the Portia club, W.R.C. and other organizations of the city. She was the mainstay of the home and was everything to her children. In belief Mrs. Cline was a thorough spiritualist, and had no doubts as to the future life.

The funeral services were held from the residence Monday afternoon at 2:30, Rev. Wm. Barton officiating. Judge C. E. Lobdell made a few appropriate remarks during the service. The interment was in Larned cemetery.
