THE WESTERN STAR, 9 July 1915
Obituary of LUCY J. CRITES
MRS. LEE CRITES

The sad news reached this city on Tuesday afternoon, July 6, that Mrs. Lee Crites had died at 2 o'clock p.m. on that day in St. Francis hospital in Wichita, where she had been taken about 10 day before. On July 2 she underwent a critical surgical operation, and on last Sunday a second operation was found to be necessary. From that time her condition gradually grew weaker. The body was brought to Coldwater on Wednesday
and funeral services were held at 3 p. m. on Thursday in the Methodist Episcopal church, the pastor, Rev. Ralph W. Wyrick. being in charge. The services were peculiarly impressive. While all felt that the family and
the community had been deprived of a good wife, mother, neighbor and friend, they all knew that she was fully prepared for the event of death. Interment was made in Coldwater cemetery.

Deceased was Kansas born and at the time of her death was 38 years and 11 months of age. Her parents died when she was quite young and she was raised in a family by the name of Fuller, and it was by that name (Lucy J. Fuller) that she was known until her marriage to Lee Crites, which occurred on February 14, 1894. To this union 3 children were born-Charley, aged 18; Ray, aged 15 and Mary, aged 4 1/2. The children
and husband and father all survive.

Deceased was an earnest and devoted christian woman. She was devoted to her family and true to every instinct of wife, mother and friend. She will be greatly missed, and to the bereaved family the sincere sympathy of the entire community is extended.
