Powell Tribune no. 25 August 29, 1919, page 1:

DEATH OF GLADYS RICHARDS

An occurrence of extraordinary sadness was the death at the Whitlock Hospital last Tuesday morning, August 26th, of little Gladys Richards, eight-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lynn E. Richards, formerly of the Garland community but now living on a homestead near Deaver. The little girl was taken ill with appendicitis on Thursday of last week, and on last Thursday evening was brought to Powell and taken to the hospital, where it was at once recognized that her condition was too critical to permit of any hope of saving her life. Lingering but a few hours after the operation, she died Tuesday morning. The remains of the little girl were taken back to the family home at Deaver, and laid to rest in the cemetery of that place, Wednesday afternoon, the funeral being conducted by Rev. Taylor, of Powell, from the Deaver community church. Present from Powell at the sad burial were Mr. and Mrs. Lee Jones, Mr. and Mrs. Lee Richards, Mr. and Mrs. Newell Richards.

In this hour of their bereavement over the loss of a child so dear to them, Mr. and Mrs. Richards desire through the columns of the Tribune to express their gratitude to the people of Powell, Garland and Deaver, who did so much to help make lighter the load of grief that they have been bearing during the past week. They truly appreciate these many acts of kindness which make the loss of their dear little girl, the more easy to bear.
