THE WESTERN STAR, 7 June 1907
Obituary of EDITH RITCHEY
Mrs. Edith, wife of Wilber Ritchey, died about 11:30 a.m. on Monday, June 3, 1907, at the home of Mr. Ritchey's mother, Mrs. A. W. Ritchey, of this city. About 7 months ago, Mrs. Ritchey took sick at their home in Wyaconda, Missouri, with the dread disease, consumption, and with the hope of benefiting her health they moved to this city. The disease, however, was beyond the power of medical skill to check. The body was embalmed, and on Tuesday was taken to Wyaconda, Mo., for burial.

The deceased would have been 23 years of age next July, had she lived. She was married last October to Wilbur Ritchey. A 5 year old son, Arthur, by a former husband and Mrs. T. J. Wooldridge of Wyaconda, Mo., with whom Mrs. Ritchey made her home during her girlhood days, were present with the husband and other relatives at the time of death.

Since she was 14 years of age, deceased had lived a consistent Christian life and she died with her faith fixed upon Christ as her Savior and Redeemer. She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church. As a wife
and mother she was faithful to every duty, patient and forbearing in her affliction, kind to all, and "in all things showing forth a spirit of the blessed Master whom she served."
