Decatur County Journal
September 25, l896

MISS DELLA LUNBECK, one of Emporia's brightest and most accomplished young ladies, died at the home of her parents, MR. and MRS. N.L. LUNBECK, 325 Union Street, last evening at l0:32 o'clock, at the age of 23 years. Quick consumption, accelerated by a severe cold contracted
last winter, was the cause of her death.

She has made her home in this city for a number of years past, and has during that time successfully taught school for several terms. She was for some time employed as cashier in the dry goods store of S. STRAUSS. She was engaged as bookkeeper and stenographer for MR. R.B. SHEPHERD for about a year, but was, on account of the confinement and failing health, forced to retire.

Early in the spring she sought relief in the higher altitude of Colorado, but receiving no benefit, returned to her home in this city, only to await the beckoning of the Angel of Death.

Her courage, patience and cheerfulness never deserted her. She did not fear death, but when she realized that the end was near, called her friends to her bedside and bid them good-bye, assuring them they would all meet again.

The funeral services will be held at the First Methodist Episcopal Church tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by REV. COKER, after which the remains will be taken in charge by the Royal Neighbors of which she was a member.

--Emporia, Kansas, Republican.
