Birth: 1852
Death: Jun. 7, 1885
Dickinson County
Kansas, USA

Died, in Abilene, Kansas, June 7th, 1885, Mrs. Ella Hinman Carpenter, in her 34th year. On Sunday afternoon last our community was startled by a rumor of the sudden death of Mrs. G. W. Carpenter, which proved to be a sad and shocking truth. Mrs. Carpenter was in her usual health, had been out riding the previous evening, performed her daily round of household duties on that morning, nor had any complaint from her been heard by the family. Her husband left her in the morning engaged in household work, well, as he supposed, and in good spirits. She retired to her room about noon to take a bath, at which time her little boy was in the habit of taking a nap. He came as usual for his sleep, but her sisters tried to persuade him from going in, but he persisted, whereupon they went to the door to listen, and not hearing any sound supposed that she was through with her bath and had layed down to sleep, so they then persuaded the little fellow to go in another room. When Mr. Carpenter returned home, about 2 o'clock, he went to the room for a handkerchief and found her lying on the bed apparently asleep, not having taken her bath, but in soothing the little one on its awakening he observed her strange appearance and discoloration about the neck. Drs. King and Garcelon were called at once but all efforts to restore her to consciousness were vain. It is supposed that on entering the room she was suddenly attacked with heart disease, and lying down upon the bed, became unconscious and quietly breathed her life away, without a struggle or shadow of pain. Mrs. Carpenter was a woman of rare excellence, gentle, re fined, genial and winning. Her realm was home, and there she will be most deeply mourned and missed. Her devotion as wife and mother was the crown of her adorning, and in all the relations of life as daughter, sister, friend and neighbor, she was loving, true and kind. In her immediate family there are left to mourn an irreparable loss, seven little children, her husband, mother and two sisters, who in an unusual degree have the sympathy of all. The funeral services of Mrs. G. W. Carpenter will take place at the family residence Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Mrs. S. E. Wheeler, of South Bloomfield, N. Y. will arrive to-day to attend the funeral of her daughter, Mrs. Carpenter. A sad visit for her. (Abilene Reflector, 6-11-1885)
