Passing of woman Pioneer
Mrs. C.M. Alexander died Friday evening about 7:30 at Milford. Deceased had been in very bad health, for nearly a year. Along last February, just after an attack of the influenza, Mrs. Alexander began to suffer greatly from one of her kidneys. She continued to suffer until late in the summer, she was taken to one of the hospitals, in Kansas City, and examined by the specialists.
It was found that the patient suffered from a floating kidney. The kidney was removed, and it was hoped that Mrs. Alexander would be restored to health. But she did not improve, and she continued to suffer a good deal.
Mrs. Alexander was seventy eight years old. She is survived by her husband, C.M. Alexander, who is eighty four years of age, and who is in quite vigorous health. She leaves two sons, our well known fellow citizen, Ed Alexander, of Ozark, and Mr. Ira Alexander of Milford. Mrs. J. M. Blake of Paul’s Valley, Oklahoma, Mrs. Chas. Hubbard of Milford, and Mrs. Chas. Faubion of Milford are daughters of the deceased.
Funeral services were held at the home, at 2 o’clock, Saturday afternoon, followed by interment in the Howell cemetery.
