Miss Thelma died in Oklahoma City hospital following an operation for gall stones. Miss Alford was apparently well Friday but took sick Saturday and it was determined to take her to Oklahoma City for an operation. She went through the operation but died soon afterward.
The remains were brought to Purcell by Mr. B.H. Rackley and prepared for burial. Funeral services were held Wednesday morning at 10:00 o'clock at the Christian church....
Miss Ruby Thelma Alford was born September 18, 1904, in Murfreesboro, Arkansas, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.N. Alford. She made her home in Murfeesboro until 1917 when her parents moved to Purcell to make their home here. She has made her home in Purcell since that time.
Miss Alford attended high school here and graduated May 11, 1924, and was one of the outstanding students of her class. Since graduating from high school she has been employed in the office of the county treasurer and in the office of the Guaranty Abstract company. At the time of her death she was working for the abstract company.
Miss Alford was a member of the Christian church at Purcell and took great interest in the work especially the work of the Christian Endeavor in which organization she was one of the leaders. She was baptized and joined the church when she was twelve years old. During her years in high school here and the few years since, she made many friends in Purcell....
She leaves her parents, Mr. and Mrs. R.M. Alford and three brothers besides other relatives and numerous friends to mourn her loss....
