Mrs. Nelson Davis Dead.
The funeral of Mrs. Nelson Davis will be held this afternoon at her home by Rev. Quirin if he returns from Wisconsin in time and if delayed Rev. Snodgrass will have charge. She had been a sufferer and bedfast for fifteen years with paralysis but was cheerful and a great lesson to those more fortunate than herself, in patience and fortitude and was resigned to the call of death. Her son Charles from Kansas City was at her bedside for several days before she died. Their son O. C. Davis died a few years ago and the other children are Mrs. Jesse Sroufe of Savannah, Arthur Davis of Vancouver, British Columbia and Mrs. Anna Waters of the state of Washington and the last two were unable to be here. Mrs. Davis had been a member of the Methodist church for many years and Rev. Quirin was her pastor. She was sixty-eight years, eight months and twenty-three days old.
