Death of Mrs. Sarah Funk

Mrs. Sarah Agnes Funk died at her home in this city Tuesday, May 7th, at 7:30 p.m. Her death was due to cancer from which she had been suffering for some time. An operation was performed several weeks ago in the hope that she might be benefited but the hope was not realized.

Sarah Agnes Bartley was born in the state of New York, October 22, 1850, and died May 7, 1907,
at the age of 56 years, 6 months and 15 days. She was married to Daniel Funk March 4th, 1886.

Three sons were born to them, Rufus, John and Abraham. The second son died several years ago,
but Rufus and Abraham are at home here in Larned.
Mrs. Funk has conducted a millinery store in Larned for the past twelve or fifteen years and is well known throughout the county. She was a devout Catholic and the funeral services were conducted under the rites of that church by Father O’Sullivan of Great Bend.

The services were at the house Wednesday and interment at the Larned cemetery Thursday afternoon.
