THE WESTERN STAR, 16 April 1909
Obituary of ELLA A. BURR
MRS. H. I. BURR DEAD.

At 6:20 a.m. on last Sunday, Easter morning, Mrs. H. I. Burr answered the summons of the Death Angel at the home of her daughter, Mrs. C. W. Mills, in Bucklin, Kansas. Mrs. Burr went to Bucklin about three weeks
ago on a visit with her daughter. On Tuesday night of last week she was stricken with paralysis and soon thereafter became unconscious and never afterward regained consciousness. Her health had been poor for some time, Bright's disease being the principal cause. Death came apparently without pain or struggle. The funeral services were held at 1:30 p.m. on Monday and were in charge of Rev. C. E. Williams, pastor of the M. E. church of Bucklin and Mrs. Burr's former pastor here. Burial took place in the Bucklin cemetery. Deceased was born on May 11, 1845, in Akron,
Ohio. She was, therefore, at the time of her death, 63 years and 11 months old. Her maiden name was Ella A. Fuller. She was married on February 24, 1862, in Ottawa, Illinois, to Harvey I. Burr, who with five
sons and three daughters, survive her. Mr. and Mrs. Burr moved in 1883 from Illinois to Harper co., Kans., and two years later they moved to the southwestern part of what is now Kiowa co. Later they located in
Coldwater and continued to make this city their home. There were few more generous hearted or more kindly disposed women than was Mrs. Burr.
All who knew her were her friends. In her home she was devoted and faithful as a wife and mother. For over 45 years she had been a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and through her faith in Christ as her savior death had no fear for her. May the
sorrowing relatives find comfort in the many promises of the Master to the sorrow laden heart.
