OBITUARY-THE PAWNEE CHIEF
NOVEMBER 8, 1922

HATTIE M. RAPER, daughter of Mrs. and Mrs. J.C. Raper, was born at Pawnee City, Nebr., November 22, 1877 and departed this life October 13, 1922; being in her 48th year. She was the fourth child in a family of eight children; two brothers dying in infancy and one sister preceding her by 16 years. Her mother died about 1887, and the father in 1914.
Her girlhood was spent on the farm, the best place possible for the young, most favorable for the acquisition of the nobler qualities of life.
She was a graduate of the class of 1893 from Pawnee City high school. She was united in marriage to Charles A. Compton, July 11, 1894. Into this home thus made were born four children, namely: Charles C., Mable F., Gladys M., and Arthur F., all of whom survive her.
In 1895, the year following her marriage, she came with her husband to Illinois, to the place of her late home, and with the exception of three years spent in Iowa and one in Nebraska, has lived here ever since.
Since 1899 she has been a member od the Court of Honor of Newman, Mrs. Compton united with the Christian church when she was 14 years of age and remained a member of the same to the close of her life.
She was an esteemed member of the local Women's Missionary Society.
She was a true wife and a devoted mother, a real homemaker. Here she will be most missed.
The funeral took place at the Fairfield Presbyterian Church.
