In Memory of Mrs. Wash Grindle.
Frances E. Baldwin was born in Miami county, Ind., Feb. 17, 1856. She was the daughter of Enos and Lavina Baldwin, deceased. She was married to Jacob Ott on May 17, 1877. To this union were born four children, two daughters, both dying in infancy, and two sons, William, who passed away about ten years ago, and Tedd, who was present at this service.
She came to Kingman county with her husband and family about 35 years ago. Mr. Ott passed away in 1884.
She was united in marriage to Washington Grindle, Feb. 17, 1886 [see correction, below]. To this union four children were born, Argo, Arthur, Lola and Jured. All of these were present but Lola, who was detained on account of sickness. There are also two step-sons, Henry, of Guthrie, Okla., and Ed Grindle, of Havensville, Kans., who were present.
Besides her husband and children she leaves to mourn her death, two brothers, one sister and eleven grandchildren and a host of friends.
Mrs. Grindle was united with the Christian church early in life, and placed her membership with the Belmont church several years ago, and was ever faithful to the end of life.
Her favorite verse was the 1st verse of the 116 Psalm, “I love the Lord because He hath heard my voice and my supplications.”
She was of a sweet disposition and had beautiful traits of character. Always had a good word for all her friends and did all in her power to uplift the community. One very prominent and commendable trait that overshadowed all alse, it being her love and tender care of her husband and children. She was an excellent mother, faithful and attentive to her house-hold duties.
The deceased was well-known in this community and will be greatly missed by her friends.
She passed to her reward at the family home stricken suddenly with heart disease, April 29, 1919, aged 63 years, 2 months and 12 days.
Her greatest desire before her death was the return of her darling soldier boy.
