|Birth: ||Jan. 24, 1889|
|Death: ||Dec. 30, 1909|
Daughter of Andrew J and Mary Ann (Britting).
Sister of Margaret R "Maggie", John Harvard, Pearl G, Essie E, Arthur Guy, Inez B, Goldie R, Tracy Ernest, Leonard "Lennie" E, and Sylvia L.
Loving hearts were made sad at 9 o'clock, Dec. 30, 1909, when the death angel came into the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Shiell and took therefrom obedient daughter and a loving sister.
Tinnie was born in Green County, Mo., and moved to the Sherman neighborhood with her parents when a very small child and where she ever afterwards lived. Tinnie was 20 years, 11 months, and six days old. She was confined to her bed only a few days. Medical aid was at hand, friends and neighbors made heroic efforts to ease the suffering one, but the disease was of too violent a nature and death seemed to be the only relief. She had been in poor heath for some time and her suffering was no doubt greater than any of her friends realized, yet she complained little and bore it all with patience.
Tinnie was a cheerful girl and always had a good word for everybody and looked on the bright side of life. She had a number of friends who will miss her sunny disposition. Tinnie was appointed postmistress at Sherman about two years ago. In this work she proved herself competent and reliable. She also assisted her father in the mercantile business. She will not only be missed here and in the home but in the community and in Sunday school as well. Tinnie was faithful in the Sunday school, her deportment was always good and her lessons always prepared. She went through life as a sunbeam, and though her life was short, we feel the world is better for her having been in it. Her father, mother, four brothers, and five sisters were by her bedside when the end came. Mrs. Pearl Parker of Dodge City, another sister, arrived in time to attend the funeral. Brother Dolshen of McCune, delivered the funeral sermon, after which the remains were laid to rest in the Sherman cemetery. It is indeed sad to think of the "Sun going down whilst it is yet day," but while we realize her life was short we feel that it was well spent and believe she is now resting safe with Jesus where the storms of life are passed.
