Mrs. Doggett Dead

Well Known Woman Passed Away At 1 O'clock Today.

Came to This County Many Years Ago and Located Near Jefferson - Was Stricken With Paralysis Last Friday.

Mrs. S.T. Doggett died at 1 o'clock this afternoon at the family home at 409 North Tenth street, after an illness which began last Friday noon when she was stricken with paralysis. She was unconscious almost from that time.

Sadie Yates, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Yates, was born May 25, 1856, in MacDonough county, Illinois. She was married February 15, 1876, to Silas Doggett at Prairie City, Ill. To this union eight children were born. Two of whom preceded her to the grave. She leaves to mourn her death her husband, four daughters and two sons, two brothers and six sisters. The daughters are Mrs. Emma Barber of Gary, Ind., Mrs. T.S. Wharton, Mrs. Charles Sharpless, and Mrs. Clyde H. Knox and the sons are Less and Orville Doggett, all of this city. The two brothers are R.C. Yates of Estancia, N.M., and M.C. Yates of Park City, Utah. The sisters are Mrs. Mary Wallack of Tomora, Neb., Mrs. M.A. Stone, Mrs. Bell Hattan, Mrs. Emma Pitts, Mrs. Josie Frost and Mrs. Will Barnes of this city.

Mr. and Mrs. Doggett moved to this county many years ago and lived for a time on a farm near Jefferson where several of their children were born. They then moved to Independence and have lived here many years. Mrs. Doggett was very active in the work of the Soldier's Mothers club, having two boys in the service, one of them overseas for two years.

Mrs. Doggett was a fine Christian woman who lived her religion in her daily life. From childhood she was a member of the Christian church. She Was dearly beloved by all her close friends and idolized by her children and other relatives. Among her many beautiful traits of character were kindness, frankness and service for others, and if ever a woman earned a rich reward in the Great Beyond by service for those she loved on this earth, Mrs. Doggett did. She was strong in her Christian faith and it supported and comforted her through all the many trials of early life in Kansas, when she was rearing a family. To this faith she clung to the end and she passed away, though unconscious, with the sustaining power of her faith in God as strong as ever.

Funeral arrangements have not been made.
