THE WESTERN STAR, 26 November 1898
Obituary of ALICE L. KIRK
At the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. McCune, in this city, on Wednesday morning, November 18, 1898, Alice L. Kirk, aged about 45 years. Miss Kirk had been sick but a short time. About two weeks ago she came to this county with her parents from Corydon, Iowa, and expected to become a permanent resident of this county. Just before reaching here, Miss Kirk was seized with a severe nervous attack. Upon her arrival, she was carried from the train and taken to the home of her sister, Mrs. W. E. McCune, where she was tenderly and lovingly cared for; but she never fully rallied. After lingering in a prostrated condition from day to day, she was finally compelled to yield to the conqueror, Death. her aged parents, two brothers and two sisters and many friends here and elsewhere, feel keenly the loss of one who was near and dear to them, and to these sorrowing and bereaved friends the sympathy of the entire community is extended. The interment took place on Thursday in the Coldwater cemetery, after impressive funeral services had been conducted by Rev. C. M. Gray, of this city.
