THE WESTERN STAR, 28 October 1921
Obituary of EVA DEAN SANDERSON
DEATH OF MRS. D. SANDERSON.

After a lingering illness, Mrs. David Sanderson died at her home in this city at 2:30 p.m. on last Sunday, October 23, 1921. Several weeks ago she became quite ill and was taken to a Wichita hospital, where she remained for about four weeks. A surgical operation revealed the fact that her ailment was cancer of the stomach, and the operation did very little good in the way of bringing relief to her. She returned home, and her vitality gradually became weaker. Her suffering required on her part the utmost patience, yet she bore it all with scarcely a murmur or complaint. Throughout all her sickness she showed a perfect readiness to meet her Savior, her faith in Christ having long sustained and comforted her. She had for some time been a member of the Presbyterian church, and throughout her life had, in many ways exemplified the true Christian spirit.

Funeral services were conducted from the Presbyterian church ar 2:30 p.m. on Monday, and were in charge of the pastor, Rev. A. Frank Johnson, assisted by Rev. J. B. Handy.

Eva Dean Johnson, daughter of Everett and Mary Johnson, was born in Chillicothe, Ohio, on September 29, 1875. Her age at the time of her death was 46 years and 21 days. At Bainbridge, Ohio, about 27 years ago she was united in marriage with David Sanderson. To this union five children were born - two sons and three daughters, as follows; Lloyd Vernon, aged 22, Everett William, aged 18, Clara Elizabeth, aged 16, Mary Emma, aged 12 and Grace Pearl, aged 9, all of whom with the father survive. The family came to Coldwater about 12 years ago and continued to make this city their home, except for about nine months, during which time they lived in Arkansas.

Deceased was a faithful wife and mother, a kind mother and a true friend to all. She will be missed in the home, but the memory of her kindly ministrations will linger long with all who knew her.
