MRS TINA BALDWIN DIED AT TULSA LAST THURSDAY
Funeral and Burial in Neodesha Last Friday Afternoon
Mrs. Tina Baldwin, wife of the late W. D. Baldwin, passed away at the home of her sister, Mrs. E. C. Burton, 1104 East 21st Place, Tulsa, Okla., Thursday April 14, 1932, at 9 o'clock a. m. , aged 76 years, 3 months and 21 days. Mrs. Baldwin accompanied her sister home last June for a visit. Soon thereafter her health began to fail and she had not since been able to return to her home in Neodesha. For the past six months she was bedfast with intestinal trouble. All that medical skill and loving hands could do was done, but to no avail.
The body was brought overland from Tulsa to Neodesha last Thursday evening.
Tina Shipley was born and reared in Tennessee near Memphis, and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. M. Shipley. When Tina was a small child the family moved to Iowa, where they resided a few years and in 1869, traveling overland, settled in Kansas, near Altamont, where the Shipley family lived on their homestead for many years. Tina, with the rest of the children, attended the rural school there. Later Tina finished her studies in the schools of Oswego, Kansas. She then entered the teaching profession and among her first years of teaching was in her home school. Later she entered the millinery business at Oswego. In the early 80's she came to Neodesha and for several years was in the millinery business here, after which she took up school teaching and taught several terms in the Neodesha schools. In 1894 she was married to W. D. Baldwin, who for many years was in the grocery business in Neodesha. Mr. Baldwin died in 1917.
Mr.s Baldwin lived a life of usefullness from her girlhood on until the time of her death. She was instrumental in rearing three families of children, although she had no children of her own. After the death of her parents she served as father and mother to the younger children of the family. Her life was a life of sacrifice. She was always mindful of those about her. Their worries were her worries. Their troubles were her troubles. Their happiness was her happiness. Mrs. Baldwin was indeed a frontier's woman. Having come to Kansas in an early day, she saw the hardships and handicaps and experienced all the trials and privations of the frontier people who settled up Kansas and made it possible for us to enjoy the privileges and pleasures that are now ours. To such women as Mrs. Tina Shipley Baldwin the world owes a debt of gratitude. To such women the world pays tribute justly done. Such women wherever they may be God bless them. Mrs. Baldwin was one of the noblest of God's children and the memory of her goodness will be cherished in ithe hearts of many for years to come.
