THE GARBER SENTINEL, November 7, 1901
Little Alma Chenoweth, aged five years, died at her home near Garber, Oklahoma, October 28, 1901.
Little Alma was a model child, bright, sweet tempered, always pleasant, "scattering smiles and sunshine" wherever she went, thus making friends of all with whom she came in contact. In her home she was the idol of the family, in school she was loved by all as only a little girl with her gentle, winning ways could be loved. When her pleasant face did not appear at the school house door many anxious voices asked, Where is Alma? In her play she was unselfish, always trying to make others happy. Many times during the last month did her sweet voice, marry laughter and kind remembrances lighten the teacher's care and create a cheerful spirit among the scholars.
We shall miss Alma, but we know the Lord has only gathered another of his precious jewels home.
