THE WESTERN STAR, 19 March 1909
Obituary of LEARA MINNIE BLACK
LEARA BLACK

Death has, for the third time in as many months, entered our neighborhood and each time claimed one of our esteemed neighbors for its victim. This time it is our esteemed neighbor, Mrs. Daniel Black. Leara Minnie Heaton was born in Marion county, Illinois on June 16, 1882, and died March 10, 1909, at her home near Coy, Okla. Her age at the time of her death was 26 years, 8 months and 22 days.

She was united in marriage on September 7, 1901, to Daniel D. Black at Anthony, Kansas. One little
daughter, Nellie, aged three years, and the husband and many relatives are left to mourn the sad loss. Mrs. Black had suffered for several months with that dreaded disease, consumption, but bore her suffering patiently and cheerfully and was fully prepared to die. She was a good christian woman, and devoted wife, a loving mother and a good neighbor, and to know her was to love and respect her. She will be sadly missed from our community. But we know she has gone where there is no sorrow, grief or pain,
