Emma Atchley, 39, wife of Nando Atchley, had been suffering from cancer for the past two years and even went to Houston, Texas for treatment about six weeks ago. She seemed to have improved for a while, but last week her condition suddenly took a turn for the worse and Nando went to Texas to bring her home.
They arrived in Lebanon, but Mrs.Atchley felt too ill to travel on to their home in the Candock neighborhood, so they stopped at the home of a cousin, Mrs. John Tyler, where Mrs. Atchley died.
Funeral services were held 10am Wednesday at the family home with Rev. J.E. Hinkie officiating. The Candock Choir sang,"Jesus, Lover of My Soul", "This Strange Land" and "Sometime We'll Understand".
Burial was in the Atchley family graveyard.
Emma Atchley, the daughter of Joseph and Sarah (Elder) Stidham, was born about 1875 in Illinois and came to Missouri with her parents as a small child. She married Nando Atchley twenty years ago.
She is survived by her husband, Nando; one son, Abe; mother, Sarah; four brothers, William P. Stidham of Lebanon, Fate of Lebanon, Tom of Joplin and Robert of California.
