The death of Mrs. K.W. Kingsley occurred Wednesday afternoon at her home on West Mission Street. Mrs. Kingsley had not been well for some time but was always up and around most of the time until about two weeks ago when she confined to the bed.
Miss Cordelia Delight Beebe was born in New York Oct. 6, 1870 (sic). She was united in marriage to Kirk W. Kingsley at Hamilton, N.Y. The next spring they began farming near Delaware, Iowa, and continued until the fall of 1876 when they came to this place which has since been their home.
Three daughters were born to this union, Lula and Grace, who passed away in infancy, and Carrie, now Mrs. F.H. Slagle. Mr. Kingsley passed away May 31st, 1920.
Mrs. Kingsley was an active member of the Congregational church and the Ladies Aid Society. Besides her daughter, she leaves a granddaughter, Cirila Slagle, who was a close companion to her.
Funeral services were held at the home Saturday afternoon at two o'clock, conducted by her pastor, Rev. W.W. Maxwell. Interment took place in the family lot in our cemetery.
Among those from out of town who attended the funeral were Mrs. Utley and Mrs. M.J. Yoran of Manchester and Mrs. Delight Meader of Cedar Rapids.
