THE WESTERN STAR, 29 September 1916
Obituary of LEOTA McLAUGHLIN
DEATH OF MRS. BRUCE McLAUGHLIN.

After an illness of about 7 months, during which time she was a sufferer from tuberculosis, Mrs. Bruce McLaughlin died at her home in this city at 10:50 a.m. on last Tuesday, September 27, 1916.

Funeral services were conducted from the home on Wednesday forenoon, Rev. Ralph W. Wyrick of the M. E. church being in charge. Interment was in the Coldwater cemetery.

Leota Dowell was born in Ventura, Calif., on February 12, 1895, her age at the time of death thus being 21 years, 7 months and 14 days. When she was but 5 years of age, her mother died, leaving her wholly to the care of a father. At the age of 11, she was brought from California to Spivey, Kansas. About 5 years ago she came to Coldwater and continued to make this city her home. On January 23, 1914, she was united in marriage
with Bruce McLaughlin. Two children - a son and a daughter - were born to this union, but both children died at birth.

Mrs. McLaughlin was a patient sufferer, and for some time before her death realized that the end was not far away, and she appeared to be prepared for the event of death. To the bereaved husband the sympathy of all is extended.
