Death of Mrs. R. K. Soper

A death that was not entirely unexpected and yet was a sudden shock to her many friends occurred at 8:45 p.m. Monday [13 Nov 1897] when Mrs. R. K. Soper breathed her last. She had been ill for nearly a year, caused from a cancer in the stomach. Everything was done for the deceased that could possibly ease her sufferings but to no avail.

Mrs. Cynthia J. Soper was born February 14, 1843, at Mt. Vernon, this state, making her 54 years, 9 months and one day of age at the time of her death. February 11, 1867 she was married to R. K. Soper and moved to this county in 1883 where she has resided up to the time of her taking away. A woman of bright mental attainments Mrs. Soper became a favorite among her associates. She was a devoted member of the Free Baptist church of this city and always took an active part in church work as long as her health would permit and will be greatly missed by her co-workers. Her death will be lamented by a wide circle of friends and all extend sincere sympathy to the bereaved husband, sons [Rufus D. and Harry J.] and daughter [Celinda.] The funeral services will be held at the house at eleven o'clock today conducted by Rev. J. I. Brown and the remains interred in the West Side (Oak Hill) Cemetery.
