Pneumonia Ends Life of Husband Last Night
The death of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Cosner, both within three days, the two will be buried side by side in Rose Hill tomorrow at two o'clock-a double funeral, victims of influenza. Mr. Cosner was first stricken and in the meantime the wife, who had at first given him such careful attention, became ill and died, and in his delirium he never knew of her fate.
Mrs. Cosner died Saturday night at 8:30 and Mr. Cosner died Tuesday night at 9:30. He had been ill for over two weeks while the disease proved fatal to the wife in half the time. However, his final end was so apparent that the burial was delayed and the body of the wife lay in an adjoining room awaiting the end. Mr. Cosner's condition had been dangerous for over a week, but as with Mrs. Cosner, all efforts against the disease were without avail.
Mr. Cosner was aged 36 and Mrs. Cosner aged 30, and there are two little children-Idus, aged 5, and Charles, Jr., age 2. Mrs. Cosner was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Pasquel Giles, and he is the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Cosner, the father having died a few months ago. Both were born and raised in Bloomington, and both were popular and much loved among their acquaintances. Mr. Cosner has four sisters, Mrs. William Spriggs of Bedford; Mrs. G. G. McDarmond of Williams; Mrs. Lita Adamson of Bedford and Miss Idus Cosner of this city; and the mother to mourn the death. The mother of Mrs. Cosner also survives. She was a member of the Christian Church, but he was not associated with any organization. For several years Mr. Cosner has been in the photographic business and had proved a very successful man, honest and straightforward in all his dealings. Especially sad is the loss to the two children-both left orphans in less than a week's time.
This afternoon the two caskets are side by side at the home on West 4th Street, and the friends may call tonight or tomorrow morning. Tomorrow at two o'clock the funeral will be held at the residence, and the double burial will be at Rose Hill. The bodies will be placed side by side-the wife first and on the left side--in separate vaults, but in the same grave. The pallbearers are to be L. W. Hughes, Verley Clark, Charles Wylie, H. A. Dixon, Floyd Belcher, Gilbert Shaw, Fred Thrasher, Charles Bender, Albert Carpenter, Howe Martin Roy Bryant and Elmer Bender.
