THE WESTERN STAR, 9 June 1916
Obituary of CATHERINE GRIFFIN
DEATH OF MRS. JAMES GRIFFIN

After a lingering illness, during which time she was a sufferer from tuberculosis, Mrs. Catherine Griffin, wife of James Griffin, died on last Sunday evening at her home a few miles east of Wilmore. The body was taken to Kiowa for burial. The funeral services were in charge of Father Dei of Ashland, assisted by Father Kennealiy of Danville. The deceased had long been a faithful member of the Catholic church. The entire funeral services were very impressive and were attended by a
large number of friends.

Catherine Stanfield was born in Kentucky 42 years ago. The family moved to Kansas several years ago and settled in or near Kiowa. In that city deceased was united in marriage with James Griffin. About four years ago Mr. and Mrs. Griffin moved to this county and continued to make their home near Wilmore. Mrs. Griffin was a woman much respected by all who knew her. In her family circle she was a splendid example of the devoted and faithful wife and mother. Her sole purpose seemed to be to promote the happiness and comfort of those about her. She will be greatly missed
in the entire community. The husband and four children survive, and to them the heartfelt sympathy of all is extended in this their hour of severe affliction.
