THE LARNED EAGLE-OPTIC, 7 April 1899
Obituary of PEARL DAVIS
Death of Pearl Davis

The hearts of many friends were saddened this week to learn of the death of Miss Pearl Davis, daughter or Mrs. M. J. Davis, of this city, of consumption, aged twenty-three years.

Mrs. Davis came with her daughter to Larned from Jerseyville, Illinois, about two years ago, and located here, in the hope that the change of climate would allay the dreaded disease, consumption, which was slowly wasting away the life of her young daughter. For a short time Pearl seemed to improve, but after a few months a noticeable decline marked its way in the young life. Last summer she visited with relatives in Ottawa and at her former home in Illinois. When she was brought back to Larned, a few months ago, she was very weak and the ravages of the disease had made marked headway. It was then apparent to friends and loved ones that her passing to a brighter and better home was only a matter of a short time.

Pearl was a sweet and attractive girl, in the full bloom of lovely womanhood and her death leaves vacant a place in the affection of those who knew her that will never be replaced. She was a devote Christian, and, when her health permitted, was an active and enthusiastic worker in the Baptist church.

The funeral was held Thursday, afternoon, from the Baptist church and was largely attended.
