OBITUARY: Mrs. A. W. Carmichael

Almira Morgan, daughter of Thomas and Mary Ann Morgan, was born on a farm one mile north of Webster on January 14, 1860 and passed away at her home in Webster on November 28, 1944 at the age of 84 years and, 10 months, and 14 days.

She was united in marriage on May 5, 1878 with A. W. Carmichael. They lived together on a farm near Webster until January 8, 1919 when they moved to their home in town. To this union four children were born. They are, Curtie, who died in infancy; Mrs. Frank Funk, who passed away July 23, 1938; Mrs. John Roby, who passed away February 22, 1944; and Iva who resides at home.

Mrs. Carmichael was a member of the Methodist church for many years. She was a good neighbor, a gracious friend, and one who was ever ready to extend a kindness to someone in need. She was a great lover of home and found great delight in the care of her garden and flowers.

Besides her aged companion [husband] and her daughter Iva, she is survived by one brother, T. A. Morgan of Long Beach, Calif. Many other loved ones and friends will also mourn her passing.

Funeral services were held from the Webster Methodist church on Friday afternoon, December 1, at 2 o'clock, conducted by the Pastor, the Rev. E. L. Pullman.

Music for the service was furnished by a mixed quartet including, Mrs. E. E. Starry, Mrs. Orvil Heaton, Earnest Sturdevant, and John Rugg, with Miss Margaret Herrick at the piano. They sang, "Safe in the Arms of Jesus," and "Going down the Valley." Mrs. Starry also sang very beautifully the specially requested solo, "Welcome for Me."

Burial was in the Sorden Cemetery.
