THE WESTERN STAR, 12 October 1917
Obituary of SARAH CORNELIA MALTBY
DEATH of MRS. C. E. MALTBY.

Mrs. C. E. Maltby died at the St. Francis hospital in Wichita at 5 o'clock a.m. on last Tuesday. She had gone to Wichita for medical treatment. The diagnosis of her case indicated a cancerous growth in the stomach, but her physical condition was found to be too weak to
withstand the effects of an operation, hence non was made. She bore her suffering with remarkable patience and at all times displayed that hopefulness and cheerfulness which had characterized her life.

The body was brought to Coldwater on Wednesday and funeral services were conducted in the Christian church, Rev. W. H. Osborn, pastor of Wilmore
Christian church, being in charge. Interment was in the Coldwater cemetery.

Sarah Cornelia Adamson was born in Lee co., Iowa, on January 25, 1849. At the age of three she moved with her parents to Apponoose co., Iowa, where she grew to womanhood. On March 25, 1872, she was united in
marriage with Charles Edwin Maltby. To this union six children were born, Mrs. Mary Helen Swindler (who died 15 years ago), Mrs. Amy A (Rice) Price of Coldwater, Mrs. Alice C. Howard of Wilmore, Geo. A. and Edwin Benjamin Maltby and Mrs. Effie J. Booth. The husband and father, C. E. Maltby, died on April 4, 1913. Mr. and Mrs. Maltby settled in Pratt co. nearly 35 years ago. After living there for 17 years, they moved to Oklahoma, where they lived for a while. In the year 1900 they settled in this county, where they continued to make their home.

In the death of Mrs. Maltby the community loses one of its best loved citizens. For 26 years she had been a member of the Christian church, and her life was one of willing and loving service for those about her.
Her most enduring monument will be her countless deeds of kindness, her unselfish devotion to the highest standard of true womanhood and her constant and consistent adherence to the teachings of the Christ whom she served.
