MRS. G.N. KILLION RITES.

Rev. R.O. Penick Paid Tribute to Centerville Lady Thursday.


The funeral of Mrs. Effie Belle Killion, widow of George N. Killion, was held Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the Centerville church, conducted by the Rev. R.O. Penick of Fort Scott. A large concourse of friends and relatives from Fort Scott, Devon, Redfield and Mapleton attended.

There was a beautiful array of flowers, including the block inscribed "Mother," a token from the Centerville Ladies' Aid Society and pieces from numerous relatives and neighborhood friends.

W.H. Gross, Mrs. Lola Johnson, Miss Minnie Stewart and Earl Konantz, accompanied by Mrs. Harry Warren, sang "Rock of Ages" and "The Old Rugged Cross." Mr. Konantz rendered the song, "Tell Mother I'll Be There."

Mr. Penick used a text which Mrs. Killion had marked in her Bible, as she had marked many gems of scripture. It was from Rev. 2:10: "Be thou faithful unto death."
