Mrs. William McKay
Mrs. William McKay, a former resident of Ritzville, passed away at the St. Luke's hospital, Spokane, on Friday, Oct. 3rd, at 10:10 a.m., following an operation for gall stones.

The funeral services were held at Smith and Co.'s Spokane, on Sunday afternoon conducted by Rev. H. A. Luckenbach, pastor of the Pilgrim Congregational church. The remains were brought to Ritzville on Monday and laid to rest in the family plot at the local cemetery.

Mrs. McKay's maiden name was Patience Tull. She was born in Indiana, Nov. 2, 1852, and was thus nearly 67 years of age at the time of her death. She with a brother and sister were left orphans in Civil War times. She grew up in Indiana, removing when about twenty years old to Nebraska. She engaged in the profession of teaching and for a good many years followed this calling.

She was unitedin marriage to Mr. William McKay at Ritzville in 1893. They continued to make their home here until about 1904 when they removed to Spokane. Mrs. McKay has been in poor health for several years. Two years ago they spent the winter in California hoping that the change would be beneficial.

Everything possible was done in the attempt to restore her to health but the encroachments of disease finally overcame her resistance.

Mrs. McKay is survived by her husband, Mr. William McKay, who was a pioneer settler of Adams county, her aged mother, Mrs. Catherine M. Davis, now in her 84th year, of Rushville, Nebraska; a sister, Mrs. J. H. Edmunds, also of Rushville; a brother, A. I. Tull of St. Paul; a half brother, W. J. Davis of Arizona; and a half sister, Mrs. William Pratt, Holly, Colo. Her sister, Mrs. Edmonds, was with her in the last illness. She feels her loss very deeply, inasmuch as they had been very close to each other from childhood when their father their father died.
