OBITUARY, published in the Ulysses News, 8 Jan 1953

Hattie Eudora Staples Anderson, daughter of George and Allie Staples was born August 30, 1870 in Brown County, Indiana, where she grew to womanhood. On January 1, 1889 she was united in marriage to Alonzo W. Anderson. To this union seven children were born. She moved with her husband and family to a ranch in Grant county, Kansas in 1907 where she lived for twenty years. Besides performing her duties as a wife and mother, during these pioneer days, she was active in community affairs such as church, school and health programs and was never too busy to assist a neighbor. In early girlhood, she dedicated her life to her Saviour and remained a faithful Christian to the end. For the past twenty-five years she has been an active member in the Church of God at Ulysses, Kansas.

In 1920 her husband passes away. In 1927 she moved to Ulysses, where she made her home until failing health made it necessary for her to live with her children. On December 29, 1952 she passed this life at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Ora Carter, Lakin, Kansas at the age of 82 years and 4 months.

She is survived by six of her children: Charlie, Lamar, Colorado; Bertha Carter, Lakin, Kansas; Joe, Ulysses; Alta Ogilvie, La Canada, California; Mary Davis, Fair Oaks, California; Allen, Ulysses, Kansas; and one brother, John Staples of Indianapolis, Indiana. She was preceeded in death in 1923 by one daughter, Maggie Kiistner. She is also survived by twenty grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends.
