THE WESTERN STAR, 23 November 1900
Obituary of ELIZABETH BRADY DUNN
Elizabeth Brady Dunn
DIED
Dunn - In Coldwater, Kansas, on Saturday, November 17, 1900, Elizabeth Dunn, wife of John W. Dunn, of Kiowa tp.. Kiowa co., Kansas.

The news of the death of Mrs. Dunn came like a pall over the entire community. She had been sick but a short time and no fears were entertained as to her recovery until late Friday evening. About a week
before the time of her death she was taken sick at her home in Kiowa co. - the former Mills ranch. On Monday of last week she was brought to Coldwater in order that she might be nearer medical aid and also that
she might be with her daughter, Mrs. T. C. Bibb, whose home is in the city. The tender care of loving friends and the best medical assistance obtainable seemed powerless to save her life when she took a turn for
the worse in Friday evening. Death occurred at 5 a.m. on Saturday. The cause of her death was pronounced to be hernia of the intestines. The funeral exercises took place at the M. E. church at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Rev. C. M. Gray preaching an impressive and appropriate sermon, after which burial took place in the Coldwater cemetery.

Elizabeth Brady was born November 14, 1857, in McDonald co., Mo., and was married to John W. Dunn on August 15, 1877. The family moved to Comanche co. in 1884 and lived for several years in the eastern part of the county. In 1893 they moved to Woods co., Oklahoma, where they lived until a few months ago, when they moved to their newly-purchased home in
the southwestern part of Kiowa co. Mrs. Dunn became a member of the Baptist church when 14 years of age and had lived a devoted and consistent Christian life. The husband and eight children - three boys and five girls - are left to mourn the loss of a loving and devoted wife and mother, and to them many friends give words of cheer and of sympathy and bid them rely upon Him who alone can comfort the troubled heart, and who in His wisdom, "doeth all things well."
