The Crawfordsville Review
Thursday, Jan. 5, 1911 pg. 6, col. 3

Mrs. Ollie Remley Stafford, wife of Charles O. Stafford, of this city, died at 3:30 o'clock Saturday morning at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Remley of East Jefferson street, from a complication of diseases with which she has been a sufferer for 10 years. Her illness, it is thought, was caused primarily by a fall which she sustained about 10 years ago and from the effects of which she never fully recovered.

Mrs. Stafford was 36 years of age. She was born May 22, 1874, while her parents were living on their farm east Crawfordsville. She was married in 1896 to Mr. Stafford. Her husband and three children --- Ruth, aged 12 years; Ruby, aged 11 and Weldon, aged 8 ---survive. She is also survived by her parents, Daniel and Angie (Stout) Remley; one brother, Albert J. Remley, living south of the city, and one sister, Miss Ethel Remley, of this city.

Although suffering with sickness for so many years, Mrs. Stafford bore her affliction with remarkable patience and Christian fortitude. Throughout the 10 years that she was ill, during a part of which time she was an invalid, she never complained. Her life was an inspiration to those who knew her. During the past week, when it became known the end was so near, she expressed sorrow because she would be called away from her family and her children, yet she said she would die happy.

Mrs. Stafford was a member of the Presbyterian church for 24 years, joining when a little girl 12 years of age. For many months she made her home with her parents as she was unable to do household work. A year ago, she was taken to St.Petersburg, Fla., in the hope that the southern climate might prove beneficial, but the trip, it seemed, was in vain. Since May 8, Mrs. Stafford had been paralyzed in her lower limbs.

Funeral services in her memory will be held at the home of her parents, at 10 o'clock Monday morning, conducted by Dr, Leon P,. Marshall, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, of this city, of which Mrs. Stafford was member. Interment will be in Oak Hill cemetery.

The funeral will be private. Friends desiring to view the body of Mrs. Stafford may do so at any time up until Monday morning.
