Mary Louise Capps
Birth: May 5, 1919
Granby
Newton County
Missouri, USA
Death: Jun. 17, 1931
Ritchey
Newton County
Missouri, USA

Mary Louise Capps was born in Nevada Missouri on May 5 1919 to Paris Pzaro Capps and Minnie May Moore Capps. The youngest of 7 children, Mary was very loved. As she grew, she was always noted as being a very loving child and very pretty. Her hair was a beautiful shade of red.

On June 16 1931 while driving up a hill on the way home to Ritchey Missouri, their car overheated at the top of a hill near their farm. Her father was working on the car and letting it cool while Mary, who was only 12 years old played at the foot of the hill near some trees.

The car unlodged and rolled down the hill, catching Mary between it and a tree; crushing her skull. She died several hours later on June 17.

Her shoes that she wore that day were in my grandparents (her oldest brother, Lewis Capps) well house for as long as I could remember, and is now in my house as well as a lock of her hair.

One of my goals was to find a picture of her one day. I am very glad to have found her photo. The third picture at the right (which is on the second page of photos) was taken while she, her mother and two sisters were in a garden. I would have to say it was taken sometime in May or June of the year she died .

Thank you so much to Michael Dunn for sponsoring this memorial and that of Mary's mother and baby sister. He has to be one of the nicest, sweetest guys at findagrave.
