Mrs. Kinney Dies Suddenly

She Passed Away at 2 O'Clock Wednesday Morning

Mrs. C. L. Kinney died at her home in this city at two o'clock Wednesday morning. Leakage of the heart was the cause of her death. She became very ill quite suddenly on Sunday evening and her condition remained critical for the day following. She was much better on Tuesday morning but later in the day she suffered a relapse and she continued to get weaker until life ebbed away. The news of her death came as a shock to her many old friends in this community.

Funeral services will be held in the Presbyterian church in Grundy Center Friday afternoon at 2:30. The home will be open from 10 until 2 o'clock on Friday for friends who wish to call.

A complete account of Mrs. Kinney's life will be published in the next issue of The Register.

Obituary of Mrs. C. L. Kinney

Mrs. C. L. Kinney passed away at her home in Grundy Center, Iowa, at three o'clock on Wednesday morning, January 6th, 1926.

She had been seriously ill only since the previous Sunday evening when she had a serious attack of leakage of the heart and she continually grew worse until she passed away. Although she had been in failing health for several years, her death was sudden and unexpected.

Kate Estelle Anderson was born in Lime Rock county, Wisconsin, October 11th, 1859, and at the time of her death was aged 66 years, 2 months and 25 days. She lived with her parents on a farm until her marriage to Charles L. Kinney, on December 29th, 1886. After her marriage Mr. and Mrs. Kinney lived for several years at Whitewater, Wis., and also at Fort Atkinson.

In the spring of 1897 they moved to Perry, Iowa. Two years later they moved to Hubbard, Iowa, and in the spring of 1903 came to Grundy Center, where they have resided continuously since.

Mrs. Kinney was the type of woman devoted to her home and family, and one whom all could call a friend, ever ready to respond to the needs of others whenever she could lend a helping hand. She will be missed in the home and the hearts of her many friends. Her's has been a mission well fulfilled and now that her earthly cares are over she sleeps in peace where troubles never come and sorrow is unknown. It is difficult to pay a fitting tribute to the memory of so noble a woman--one whose every day life was embellished by the charming and lovable attributes of her sex.

She leaves to mourn her passing a faithful husband, one sister at Whitewater, Wis.; and a brother at Milwaukee, Wis. One child was born while the family was living at Whitewater, but it died in infancy.

The only near relatives who were able to be present at the funeral were her two nieces, Mrs. Helen Lansing Smith, of Sheldon, Iowa, and Mrs. Mable Smith, of Chicago.

Mrs. Kinney joined the Methodist church at Whitewater in young womanhood. Since coming to Iowa she has been a member of the Presbyterian church.

Funeral services were held at 2:30 on Friday afternoon, Jan. 8th, from the First Presbyterian church of this city, Dr. H. C. Chambers, pastor of that church, officiating, assisting by Rev. David Alexander, of the first Baptist church. Interment was in the Grundy Center cemetery.
