MRS. P. H. LINDLEY OF HAVANA DIES
Wife of Prominent Druggist Succumbs to Illness
"Mrs. Bertha Lindley, wife of P. H. Lindley, prominent druggist and postmaster at Havana, died Sunday afternoon at 4:30 following an illness of considerable duration, she having been confined to her bed for five weeks. Mrs. Lindley had not been in the best of health for several months and complications of various natures which were apparently non-responsive to medical treatment, brought an end to her suffering Sunday. She was 52 years, four months and 16 days of age.
She is survived by her husband, her mother, Mrs. Thomas Pittman of Havana, two sisters and two brothers. The sisters are Mrs. S. H. Barr of Caney and Mrs. Elbert Hunt of Havana, and the brothers are Jess Pittman of the home address and Louis Pittman of Howard, Kansas.
Hold Funeral Tuesday
Funeral services will be held from the Methodist church in Havana Tuesday afternoon afternoon at 3 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Stewart, pastor of the church.
The deceased was one of the pioneer families of the Havana neighborhood, the Pittmans being among the highly respected and influential citizens of the community. She was always active in civic and club work and also in the church, a woman who loved her home and spent her time and energy making of it a place of comfort and pleasure for those who came that way.
Reporter of Graf
Mrs. Lindley was the Havana correspondent for the Reporter and her newsy letters about happenings of that section were always important features in the day's news. At the time of the Graf Zeppelin passing this way, notices were sent out from the Reporter office to all correspondents to keep watch and notify the office if the big air cruiser appeared. Mrs. Lindley was the first to report its approach, and because of her prompt action many people of this city were enabled to see the big ship."
