Mrs. A. E. Geer Answered Call of Death Sunday
Death came Sunday as a relief to the long and patient suffering of Mrs. A. E. Geer, a patient in the Galloway hospital at Anthony, Kansas.
Several months ago Mrs. Geer underwent an operation at that hospital and it was thought at that time that all chances for recovery were against her but she survived, returned home, and partially regained her health. She returned to the hospital a few weeks ago but all medical knowledge could not save her.
In spite of the intense pain Mrs. Geer suffered, she greeted all with a smile and bore her suffering with a brave heart. She is an old resident of near this place and has a very large number of real friends who regret to learn of her death.
Following is the obituary:
Lizzie Arabella Hampton, the youngest daughter of J. O. and Nancy Jane Hampton, was born at Eagleville, Mo., May 4, 1872 and departed this life Sunday February 17 at the Galloway Hospital in Anthony, Kansas.
At the age of five she was left an orphan. She then made her home with her grand-parents until 1887 at which time she moved to the home of her sister, Mrs. J. A. Piburn living at Kinsley, Kans. There she attended high school and prepared for teaching but accepted a position in a printing office and became an excellent typist. Here she met A. E. Geer and was united in marriage to him December 15, 1890.
To this union three children were born, on daughter who died in infancy, and two sons, george and Fred.
They continued their work editing the Kinsley Mercury for ten years and then moved to Cold Water, Kansas, and resided there until 1910 at which time they moved to a farm west of Lamont where they have since made their home.
Mrs. Geer united in young girlhood with the Christian church at Mt. Gilead, Mo. After her marriage, she with her husband, united with the Methodist church and continued to be a loyal member unti the end.
She is survived by her husband, A. E. Geer, her two sons, Fred A. of Lamont, and George A. of Southard, Okla., one sister, Mrs. J. A Piburn of lamont, one brother, A.W. Hampton of Lawrence, Kansas, one grandchild and a host of friends who will miss her many kind acts.
Mrs. Geer was a woman who truly exemplified the Christ in ther every day life. Time may make us reconciled, while we realize to the fullest extent the aching void, that such a sacrifice brings to the door of the heart, yet there is a silver lining to every cloud which we shall all see who watches and waits, and patiently runs the race set before us.
Christ in His darkest hour, in his greatest loneliness said "Thy will be done."
