|THE DEATH OF ROZILLAR KIRKPATRICK|
Mrs. Rozillar Kirkpatrick, widow of Porter Kirkpatrick, died at 7:45 o’clock Sunday evening at her country home, The Gables, located six miles southeast of the city, on the Kinney Lane. For a number of years she had suffered with asthma and some time ago complications set in, which caused her death. Rozillar McLain was born July 15, 1839, of Scotch and English parents, in the state of Maine. She came to Indiana and Lafayette at the age of twelve years. She was married in 1859 and always lived on the same farm. She was reared in the Baptist church, but of late years attended other denominations. Mrs. Kirkpatrick was one of the best known women in Tippecanoe county and was held in high regard by all. She was a warm friend of the Home hospital and a member of the Wea Willing Workers. During her long life she was the author of many charitable deeds. Her hand and heart were guided by generous impulses and she was an ideal mother in every sense of the word. Mrs. Kirkpatrick was prominent in church and social life, and was refined and cultured. She leaves three children, Mrs. (Mabel May) C. F. O’Neall; Mrs. (Lillie Eva) Charles W. Landes and Fairfax Kirkpatrick, and one granddaughter, Ruth Kirkpatrick. The funeral was held at 2:20 o’clock Wednesday afternoon from the house, and the burial was in the Wildcat cemetery.
