THE LARNED EAGLE-OPTIC, 1 September 1899
Obituary of MARY P. DITSON
Death of Mrs. Jesse Ditson

Mary P., wife of Jesse Ditson, died at her home in Denver, Colorado, last Saturday evening, after a lingering illness, in the thirty-seventh year of her age. Her husband brought the remains to this city for burial, the funeral occurred at the Methodist church Monday afternoon at half past two o’clock, and the remains were laid to rest in the Larned cemetery by the side of those of her father and four children who died in this city some years ago. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. C. D. Hestwood, and were marked by the attendance of a large number of friends, and the contribution of many beautiful floral tributes to the memory of the deceased. The bereaved husband, Messrs. Allen and John Ditson, and Miss Daisy Ditson, of Galena, were the chief mourners at the funeral, but they had the sincere sympathy of a large circle of personal friends.

Mrs. Ditson was for many years a resident of this city. The family removed to Denver some years ago on account of her failing health. For a time it was believed the change would restore her health, but the hope was doomed to disappointment, and after gradually growing weaker and feebler the end finally came and the tired spirit went to its eternal rest. The bereaved husband and motherless children have the sympathy of many friends here who knew them during their residence in Larned.
