Mary Louise Armstrong, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Armstrong, near Lewis, passed away at her parents home. Tuesday evening, March 4 th, 1919, aged 4 years, 5 months and 9 days.
A brief funeral service was held at the home Thursday morning, March 6, at 10 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Ostdiek, of Griswold. Many of the relatives and friends of the sorrowing family were present and as they looked upon the sweet placid little body in its white casket and surrounded by beautiful and fragrant flowers -- yet not more beautiful or pure than the face within -- their hearts swelled in sympathy for the bereaved family. But let us not think of Little Mary Louise as dead, but as living; not as a flower that has withered, but as one that transplanted and touched by a Divine hand, is blooming in richer color and sweeter fragrance than those of earth.
The little body was brought to Walnut and laid softly to rest in the Catholic Cemetery.
