THE WESTERN STAR, 29 June 1917
Obituary of GRACE ROSEBERRY
Death of Mrs. M. Roseberry.

Mrs. Grace Roseberry, wife of M. O. Roseberry, died at 9:50 p.m. on last Friday, June 22, 1917, at the home of her aunt, Mrs. U. G. Wheeler, a few miles northwest of this city. Mr. Wheeler is an uncle of Mr. Roseberry. Mrs. Roseberry had been a sufferer for a year or more from Hodgkin's Disease. She had spent several months in Kansas City, receiving treatment from a noted specialist. The nature of the disease was such that the best of medical skill could not check it, hence she
grew gradually worse. Last October she was brought to this county to be with Mr. and Mrs. Wheeler, and in their home she received the best care that sympathetic hearts could suggest or loving hands could give. At last, death came as a welcomed release from her long suffering, which had been so patiently borne. She died with her faith in Christ as her savior.

Grace Jackson was born near Centerville, Linn co., Kansas, on February 11, 1889. On June 15, 1909, in Bozeman, Mont., she was united in marriage with Mathias Roseberry, who, with one son, Thomas, aged 5, survives her. Mrs. Roseberry was a devoted wife and mother, and her death, although not unexpected, brings a keen sense of sorrow to all who knew her.

Funeral services were held on Sunday forenoon in the Prairie Vale Friends' church, the pastor, Rev. Chas. Hunt, being in charge. Interment was in the Coldwater cemetery.
