MARY LOUISE (RODWAY) RICHARDS At her home in Des Moines, Iowa, Tuesday, occurred the death of Mrs. A. L. Richards after a brief attack of Pertontis. Her mother, Mrs. Mary Harriet (Lasbury) Rodway received word Monday that she was dangerously ill, and left for that place Monday evening, but her daughter had passed before her arrival. The remains were brought here Tuesday evening for burial, accompanied by the husband and children. Mrs. Richards was born in Griggsville twenty-five years age and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Knibb Rodway. She resided here until seven years ago when she was united in marriage to A. L. Richards and went to Iowa to live. To this union were born three children, two sons, now aged six and four years, and a baby daughter now six months old. Besides the husband and children she leaves her mother, three sisters, Mrs. W. E. Doane and Miss Margaret of Griggsville, and Miss Lizzie of Peoria, and many other relatives and friends to mourn her sad and untimely death. Funeral services will be held this Friday afternoon at two o'clock at the family residence in the west part of this city, conducted by Rev. W. E. Griffeth, pastor of the Congregational church, and the remains will be laid to rest beside those of her father in the family lot at the city cemetery.
