Mrs. George A. Blackwell
Mrs. George A. Blackwell of Riverside was called by death last Saturday morning at 5 o'clock, after an extended illness. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon, the services being in charge of Rev. George F. Graham. Several auto loads of friends from Okanogan attended the funeral.
We quote the following biographical sketch from the Riverside Argus: "Abigail Wells Blackwell was born in Chicago, April 4, 1849. She was married in that city to Mr. Blackwell, June 4, 1875, removing to Tacoma in 1886. Mr. and Mrs. Blackwell came to Conconully in 1891, removing to Riverside in 1905, where they have since made their home. She leaves her husband, George A. Blackwell, sister, Mrs. Annie Kelly, of Denver, Colo., and son, C. E. Blackwell.
"Mrs. Blackwell has been an active church worker all her life. She was devoted to her flowers, which she shared generously with everybody, and for which her garden was famous, was very fond of music and all dumb animals.
"For many years Mrs. Blackwell sang in concerts and at charitable entertainments. Her most notable achievement in that line was at the great concert given by the associated churches in Tacoma in the late 80s, for the benefit of the Johnstown flood national relief fund. All of her helpful life has been spent in assisting others.
