Funeral services for Mrs. G. W. Markwell, who died Wednesday at her home here, were held this morning from the Slater Methodist Church, to be followed by burial at Bethany, MO. The beautiful services were in charge of the Rev. E. T. Raney, pastor of the church, assisted by the Rev. Dr. Wallace, pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Mexico, MO.

Mrs. Markwell, who was 73 years, 2 months and 1 day old at the time of her death, had been a resident of Slater since 1900 when the family moved to this place to make its home. She was born at Louisiana, Pike County, MO, on February 5, 1853, being the daughter of the Rev. James And Mary Holliday. When she was three years old the family moved back to its former home at Morefield, Hardy County, West Virginia, but when she was eight years old, the family returned to Louisiana. Mrs. Markwell grew up in that place and it was in that city that her marriage to George W. Markwell took place on September 2, 1869. Nine children were born to the union, four of whom survive the mother, and who are: R.A. Markwell of Mexico, MO., and Mrs. F.M. Meriwether, Mrs. W. C. Oliver and Fred Markwell, all of Slater. She is survived also by her husband, G.W. Markwell, who has been in a hospital at Mexico for some time, and by three brothers and one sister: R.J. Holliday of New London, MO, F.M. Holliday and H.E. Holliday of Louisiana, MO., G.O. Holliday of Kansas City, and Miss Annie Holliday of Louisiana.

The following grandchildren also survive: Oliver Meriwether of Slater, Violet Markwell of Mexico, and Lilliam Mae, Alice Irene, Laura Grace and W.C. Oliver, Jr. of Slater.

Mrs Markwell was one of the most devout members of the local Methodist Church, having joined the church when a child of 13 years living at Louisiana, and filling her long life with true Christian deeds. Despite her feeble condition for a long time preceding her death she was most reluctant to miss the Sunday services and with the aid of her friends managed to attend church without fail for the last two years of her life except for the two Sundays just past. Alice Jane Holiday Markwell was never known to refuse a hobo at her door, for she would give them a bite to eat and also a talk on Christianity. There were many hoboes then as there were many trains running through Slater.
