      Death of Mrs. Edgar Ripley

      Mrs. Edgar Ripley, aged 72 years, died Thursday morning, September 25, 1919, at 4:00 o?clock after an illness extending over a period of three and one half years. Funeral services were conducted from the home, 477 East Park street, Friday afternoon, September 26, at 2:00 o?clock by Rev. J. D. Edgar, and the body was laid to rest in the family lot in Olathe cemetery.

      Rachel Matilda Ferguson was born at Milton, Ohio, August 17, 1847. She was married to Edgar Ripley at Newton Falls, Ohio, on February 11, 1867. In April of 1868, she, with her husband, came to Kansas City, Mo., making the trip by boat, and in 1871 they removed to Johnson county, Kansas. They lived on a farm until the fall of 1896 when they moved to this city, where they have since resided.

      From early childhood, Mrs. Ripley was reared in the Christian, or as it was known then, Campbellite, faith, but after movingto Olathe she united with the First Presbyterian church here.

      Early in March, 1916, Mrs. Ripley was stricken with rheumatism and neuritis and was bedfast for a year suffering the most intense pain. She regained her health sufficiently, however, to be able to take charge of most of the affairs of her household. For several weeks she had been steadily failing and on the afternoon of September 14 she suffered a relapse from which her feeble strength would not permit her to rally. On Thursday morning, September 25, at 4:00 o?clock she passed quietly and peacefully into the Great Beyond.

      Besides the husband, her companion for nearly 53 years, Mrs. Ripley is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Cora Hubbard, Kansas City, Kan.; Mrs. Jennie Taggart and Mrs. Nellie McCulley, of Olathe, and three grand children, Roy R. Hubbard, Kansas City, Kan., and Nellie and Helen Taggart. A son died in infancy.

      Mrs. Ripley was a woman of wonderful personality and charm; a good neighbor, especially so in the early days of the farm when neighbors were peculiarly precious, a patient sufferer, bearing her affliction with fortitude and cheerfulness; a splendid wife and mother.
