THE WESTERN STAR, 6 December 1912
Obituary of KATHERINE ELIZABETH NORRIS
Katherine Elizabeth Wolf was born in Barton county, Missouri January 6, 1890, and departed this life at Liberal, Kansas, on November 26, 1912, aged 22 years, 10 months and 20 days. With her parents, she came to Kansas in 1893. After finishing her education, she taught for 2 years in the Stafford county schools. At the age of 13 she united with the United Brethren church, and at the time of her death was a member of the New Hope Willing Workers Sunday School class.

On August 18, 1909, she was married to Robert J. Norris, and to this union was born one son, Earl Allen. One sister and three brothers have preceded her to the better land. She leaves behind, besides her husband
and little son, three aged grandparents, father, mother, two brothers, three sisters and a host of relatives and friends.

Mrs. Norris was a dutiful and loving daughter, wife and mother and her loss is mourned by all who knew her.

She had so lived that when the summons came "To join the innumerable caravan that moves to that mysterious realm, where each shall take his chamber in the silent halls of death," she went "not like the quarry slave at night scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed by an unfaltering trust, approaches his grave like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him, and lies down to pleasant dreams."

Deceased was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Wolf, who live on one of the Joe Thomas farms, southeast of this city. The sincere sympathy of all is extended to the bereaved family.
---------
Ben and Miss Leone Wolf returned on Wednesday from Liberal and St. John where they and their parents and sister, Miss Bessie, had been called by the death of Mrs. Norris, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wolf. Mrs. Wolf and Miss Bessie have not yet returned.
