      Mrs. A. O. Brown Died Last Night After A Long Illness With Brights Disease

      Last night at 11:20, at her late residence, No. 1600 Forrest Avenue, occurred the death of Mrs. A. O. Brown, wife of A. O. Brown, one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of Labette county. Mrs. Brown's death was not unexpected. For the past three years she has been a constant sufferer from Brights Disease and during all that time she has hardly experienced a day free from pain. For a period of four months, last winter and spring Mrs. Brown was confined to her home. About the first of last May she grew better and was for a time thought to be permanently improved. However, the hopes of her husband and friends were fruitless. Six weeks ago, the suffering lady became bedfast and never again arose.

      During all the period of her illness, up to the last, when her suffering was almost beyond human endurance, Mrs. Brown bore her affliction with a patient fortitude that is characteristic of her life. She seldom ever complained and always greeted her friends with a pleasant smile. During her life in Parsons, she has been closely identified with the growth and progress of the Methodist church. A worker for the sake of charity, with a cordial greeting for all, and her Christian spirit always manifested. This lady's death is regarded as a great loss not only to her immediate family, but to her church and the city as well.

      Nancy M. Brown was born in the state of New York, 1837, hence was 67 years of age at the time of her death. Twenty -two years later at Oregon, Ill. she was married to the husband who survives and in 1870 the couple came to Parsons, or rather to the present site of Parsons where they have since lived. For the last twenty-three years Mr. and Mrs. Brown have occupied the present home at the corner of Forrest Avenue and 16th Street. The deceased grew up with the city from its very foundation and was familiar with every important event of its history. Mr. and Mrs. Brown never had any children, and excepting two nieces - one at Herrington, Kas. and another at Lockwood, Mo. they have no relatives living nearer than New York state.

      The funeral will occur tomorrow afternoon at three o'clock from the family residence, conducted by Rev. W. C. McCurdy, pastor of the First M.E. church.

      At her late residence, No 1600 Forrest Avenue this afternoon at 3 o'clock occurred funeral services over the remains of Mrs. A.O. Brown whose death was chronicled in yesterday's Sun. The services, which were very impressive were conducted by Rev. W. C. Macurdy, pastor of the church of which the deceased was a member.

      A large crowd of sorrowing friends gathered and listened silently while Rev. Macurdy spoke briefly of the character that had grown familiar in the church and in the city. The services were very impressive and the grief was universal with those present. Followed by many former friends, the body was taken to Oakwood Cemetery and there deposited in the final rest.
