Obituary of BERTHA ANNETTA ELZEA
Mrs. Lee Elzea Dies at Her Home in Wilmore after Five Week's Illness.

Mrs. Lee Elzea, died at 10 o'clock a.m. on Sunday, December 6, 1914, at her home in Wilmore. Just 5 weeks before her death a son was born to her and her sickness began soon afterwards, blood-poisoning having set in. Her suffering at times was intense, so much so that her eyes having been affected by the blood-poisoning. She was conscious almost to the last,
and throughout her entire sickness she was patient, hopeful and uncomplaining.

Bertha Annetta Clark was born in Iroquois-co., Ill., on October 8, 1876. She came with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Clark, to Comanche-co. in October, 1886. This county continued to be her home. On February 4,
1900, she was married to Lee Eliza. For nearly 5 years past the family have made their home in Wilmore. Mrs. Elzea is survived by her mothers, Mrs. Henry Clark, of this city, and by three brothers - W. A. Clark of this city, J. M. Clark of Kiowa and Geo. H. Clark of Crescent City, Ill., also by her husband and 4 children. The children are: Lena, aged 13; Ethel, aged 11; George Clark, aged 5, and Lester Lee, aged 5 weeks.

Burial was made in the Wilmore cemetery on Monday afternoon, appropriate funeral services having previously been held at the Wilmore Baptist church, the pastor, Rev. J. Bert Smith, being in charge.

Mrs. Elzea was one of the most devoted of wives and mothers and in every respect a good woman. Her death calls forth from her numerous friends expressions of sincere sympathy for the bereaved and grief-stricken
relatives.
