Death of Mrs. R. C. Stone
Mrs. R. C. Stone has passed away such was the news that saddened our community last Friday morning. She was ill but a short time with pneumonia, which developed from influenza. Her passing was at the family home, surrounded by her husband and all her children.
The funeral services were held from the Christian church on Sunday afternoon, with Rev. Charles Addleman, of Clarkston, officiating, assisted by the Rev. H. A. Vicker, of Asotin. Interment was had in the Clarkston cemetery.
In token of respect, with which this pioneer women was held, the funeral was attended by friends from near and far, bring and sending foral offerings that were many and beautiful.
She is survived by her husband, six daughters and two sons: Mrs. Harvey Hostetler, Asotin; Mrs. Elmer McGee, Craige; Mrs. Claude Talbott, Anatone; Mrs. E. H. Jones, Clarkston Heights; Mrs. Clarence Brumpton, Clarkston; Mrs.
William Anderson, Lewiston; Cress R. Stone, and Jacob Stone, Asotin.
Mrs. Stone was born in Montevidio, Minnesota, on October 24th, 1869, being the fourth child of Morrison and Lucinda McMillan, and named Kate Edith. When she was
twelve years old the family crossed the plains and settled in Oregon, later coming to Asotin county and settled on Montgomery Ridge. On July 4th, 1885, she was united in marriage to R. C. Stone. They made their home on the farm until about twenty years ago when they moved to Asotin, in which place they resided until the time of her death.
When yet a girl she united with the church, and on coming to Asotin she became an active and faithful member of the Christian church. For many years she was superintendent of the Sunday school and for years her consecration to the work held the Sunday school together. Not only was she active in church work, but in all local affairs for the betterment of the community, she was a conscientious and willing worker.
To know Mrs. Stone was to love her. She was a good wife, mother, and friend. She will be greatly missed throughout this whole community. She will be missed in her social circles, and in church work, but she will be especially missed in her home. Though gone before, she has left a rich heritage to her family and frinds. For them, yet will live in memory the generous hand, the hear of gold.
