Death Came Yesterday at the Hospital Following An Operation
- No Funeral Arrangements Yet.

Mrs. Martha Ann Brown, aged 67 years, died yesterday at Mercy Hospital, following an operation which she underwent last Friday afternoon at the hospital for gall stones. The deceased had been suffering intermittently for the past seven years, but her condition and not been considered serious until about four months ago. It was believed then that relief could be obtained through an operation, but at that time her heart was not in condition to stand the ordeal, and it was necessary to wait. Her condition was so much improved last week that it was believed circumstances were as favorable as possible, and she was taken to the hospital on Thursday, undergoing the operation on Friday.

The deceased is survived by her husband, Jacob Brown, one daughter, Mrs. William H. Simpson, of 1238 East Wall Street, five sons, Jasper, of Detroit, Mich.; Harrison, of Lawton, Kans.; Thomas J., of Wichita; Gus, living at 1712 Pine Street, this city and John, of Eldorado, Kans.; also three sisters, Mrs. W.S. Lee*, of 1104 East Wall, Mrs. Robert Pryor**, of 1713 East First; and another sister** in Pueblo Colo.; and one brother, T.J. Camp(1), of Market Street.

Funeral arrangements will not be completed until definite word is received as to the time of arrival here of Jasper Brown of Detroit, the eldest son of the deceased.

The home of the deceased is at 116 South Lincoln Street.

The funeral services for Mr. Martha Ann Brown were held yesterday (March 26, 1919) at 3 o'clock from the W.H. Simpson home, 1238 East Wall street, conducted by Rev. Beloit of the Church of God. Burial was made in the Center Cemetery.
