Mrs. Emily Matilda Randol
Mrs. J. P. Randol died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. H. J. Dray early Wednesday morning after an illness of several months time. Mrs Randol came to Custer county with her husband in the spring of 1898 and settled on a homestead near Custer City. For a number of years she has made her home in Weatherford and was on of the best known and liked women in Weatherford. Mother Randol, as she was widely known, was one of the women who are never happier than when they are doing things for the loved ones of their family. Her last illness confined her to her bed for a few short weeks, but she had been frail for a number of years, but her optimism and cheeriness never waved.

Funeral services were conducted from the H. J. Dray residence Wednesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. L. L. Shaw, interment being held in Greenwood cemetery. Great masses of flowers covered the casket and filled the room in which the services were held.

The obituary follows: Emily Matilda Gilliland was born in Cope Girardeau, Mo., October 1, 1842 and died in Weatherford, Okla., June 17 1925. She was married to John P. Randol December 20, 1860, to this union were nine children, five boys and four girls, all of whom are living. A brother, sister and thirty-three grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren survive together with her husband, J. P. Randol to mourn her departure.

Early in life, at the age of 12 years, Mrs Randol accepted Christ as her Savior, joining the Methodist church known as McKindery Chapel, the oldest church west of the Mississippi river. Her splendid christian life has blessed all who have come in contact with her during her long and useful life. The entire community join in extending sympathy and hope to the sorrowing relatives at the passing of this good woman.
