MAXWELL, Margaret Jennie KELLEY Shelton Cowan Simmons - Mrs. O.D. Maxwell died at her home in this city on Monday, June 17th, 1901 at 9:15 o'clock a.m., aged 64 years. Mrs. Maxwell was afflicted for several years and for the past year had been unable to care for herself. As the end drew near her sufferings increased and she was never free from pain. Death came to her not as a grim monster but rather as a friend, for she was ready to go. The funeral service, conducted by Rev. Peter Carnahan Tuesday morning, was largely attended by friends and acquaintances. Interment at the Odd Fellows cemetery followed immediately after the service.
