Died

  Mrs. Ethel Cooper, nee Tucker, died at Pueblo, Colorado, Saturday, October 11th, 1890, aged 15 years 5 months and 26 days of typhoid fever.
  She was the daughter of Mr. And Mrs. M.M. Tucker of this city; was born at Wellington, Ohio, April 15th, 1875; came to Kansas with her parents in March 1885; was married to George Cooper July 21st, 1890, and passed into the mysterious future October 11th, 1890.
  It was in the midst of the second act of life; when hope was brightest with future promises; when the silver rays of life’s fair morning sun yet descended in their fullness; while the soft and balmy breezes of summertime fanned a heart full of life, full of hope, full of promise and sweet prospect that the curtain fell hiding from the gaze of a host of loving friends what might have been.
  A large gathering of sorrowing friends met her remains at the depot and followed them to her fathers house where Rev. Reynolds delivered the funeral discourse, after which all that was left of her earthly existence was tenderly laid to rest in the east park.
