Mrs. Famuliner became seriously ill July 4 and was removed to Christian Hospital in Kansas City. Her condition did not improve, however, and she was brought to Joplin last Monday.

He later accepted the pastorate of the Villa Heights Christian church, where he remained six years. Later he went to Carterville and was pastor of the Christian church there for two and a half years. He resigned and on June 1 accepted the pastorate at Wichita.
Illness prevented Mrs. Famuliner from joining her husband at Wichita.
