Mary Francis Tinker, the young daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Tinker, who live three miles northwest of this city, died on last Friday, September 19, 1919, after an illness resulting from summer complaint and complications. Funeral services were held at the home on Sunday afternoon and were in charge of J. T. Wheeler, pastor of the Christian church of this city. Interment was in the Coldwater cemetery. Little Mary was a dutiful and lovable child and her death brings to the home a keen sense of sadness and evokes for the bereaved family the most sincere sympathy. She is survived by her parents and by three brothers, Alvin, Forest and John, and by two sisters, Donna and Doris. At the time of her death Mary's age was 1 year, 9 months and 12 days.
