THE WESTERN STAR, 31 October 1896
Obituary of TOTILLA A. SKINNER
DEATH of MRS. L. M. SKINNER.

Some three months ago, Mrs. L. M. Skinner, accompanied by her husband and two youngest children, left Logan township for Greensburg, Ohio,
where it was hoped the former could be successfully treated for cancer. For a time she was reported to be improving, but the tide changed and she gradually grew worse until death relieved her of her suffering on
Saturday, October 17. She was buried at her home at Greensburg.

Miss Totilla A. Greenwood was married to L. M. Skinner at Greensburg, Ohio, 24 years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Skinner came west in 1884, and had resided in Comanche county 11 years. Three children survive her - the youngest 2 years old, the eldest 21. The deceased was 40 years of age, at the time of her death. She had been a member of the U. B. church for 10 years. Her friends were many because she was true and good. Only in the prime of life, she was called to the spirit world. Her part in the life of earth will be missed. Peace to her ashes.
