She had been married for 50 years and from this happy union she leaves three children, Willard, John and Mrs. S. (sic) Barnett. Funeral announcements will be made later.
It is with deep regret we today chronicle the news of the death of Mrs. Mary Featherston, of 416 East Taylor street, who quietly passed through the portals of life to a happier beyond at 9 o'clock this morning, after an illness of over twelve months.
Mrs. Featherston was a highly respected pioneer resident of Moberly and was a good woman, a kind neighbor and a loving wife and mother, who, believing in the holy teachings of the Bible, instilled a love for our Savior in her children and those near and dear to her.
She was 71 years old on July 1, and for almost fifty years had been a dutiful, thoughtful, loving wife. She is survived by her aged companion, "Uncle Jack" Featherston, and the three children born of the union, they being Mrs. M. S. Barnett, Willard M. and John Featherston.
The funeral arrangements will be announced tomorrow.
