Franklin County
Illinois, USA
Death: Oct. 30, 1937
Lucas County

Wife of Delmar Bryant Sollis. Daughter of William Mackey and Margaret Minton


Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, November 4, 1937


Mrs. D. B. Sollis, well known Chariton lady, died at her home in this city at an early hour, on Saturday morning, October 30, 1937, at the age of 53 years, 4 months and 8 days, after an extended illness.

Largely attended funeral services, conducted by Rev. Harry Secor, of the First Baptist church, were held at the Beardsley Funeral Home Monday afternoon, at 3:30 o'clock. The floral tributes were profuse and beautiful. Burial was in the Chariton cemetery.

Cora J. Mackey was born in Benton, Franklin county, Illinois, on June 22, 1884.

She was married in Vincennes, Indiana, on January 14, 1912, to Dr. D. B. Sollis, who survives her. Two daughters and a son, Carolyn, Delmara and Dick, were born to them, all of whom are living. Besides her husband and children, she is survived by one brother, Jim Mackey, of Norris City, Ill.

For a time, the family lived in Bedford, Iowa, and Lincoln, Nebraska, but since 1924, their home had been in Chariton.

Mrs. Sollis was active in church, community and social affairs, but was devoted to her family and home. She ever found time to minister to others. Her happiness was greatest when she could sacrifice the most. She was a woman of strong character, and her kindness and sweet disposition were appreciated by all who knew her.

For many years she had been an active and faithful member of the Baptist church. She was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War, and the American Legion Auxiliary. These organizations were well represented at the last rites.
