Obituary - Olive Locke RANKIN, wife of Charles G. RANKIN, died suddenly at her home in Washington, D. C., Monday evening, although on the sick list a short time, her death was unexpected. Mrs. RANKIN left Orbisonia about two weeks ago, after a short visit at the home of her parents Mr. and Mrs. H. B. LOCKE. Her mother accompanied her to Washington, where she assisted in the arranging of their new home. Mr. RANKIN and wife having moved their household effects to that place a short time ago, where the husband held a position in the navy yard. Mrs. RANKIN was a victim of the grip and it is supposed her sudden death was due to effects of the same. The deceased was united in marriage to Charles G. RANKIN, of Orbisonia in the Methodist Church on Thanksgiving Day, November, 1901, deceased was a Christian lady in every respect, and an active member of the church in which she was married. In addition to the bereaved husband C. G. RANKIN and little son Louis, she is survived by her parents Henry B. LOCKE and wife, and her brother Howard, all of Orbisonia. Her father was notified of the critical condition of his daughter by telegraph, and at once departed for Washington, but her life had gone out before he arrived at her bedside. Mrs. LOCKE was present at the home when her daughter expired. Deceased was kind, indisposition[sic], and admired by all who knew her. She was aged about 21 years. The announcement of the death of Mrs. RANKIN was a great shock to her Orbisonia friends, and it cast a gloom of sadness throughout the town. The remains were brought to Orbisonia Wednesday morning, and taken to the home of the deceased parents. Interments made in the Orbisonia Cemetery same afternoon. Funeral services were held in the Methodist church and were in charge of Dr. C. E. CULVER of Mt. Union. Rev. VOUGHT the M. E. pastor being absent attending conference. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved ones.
