    MRS. ALICE LEMON
    Alice Victoria Kirby, daughter of Samuel J. and Carolina Elizabeth Kirby, was born May 14th, 1862 in Carroll County, Virginia.

    At an early age she moved with her family to Kansas and located on a farm near Topeka.

    On April 12, 1888, she was united in marriage to Charles Lemon and to this union were born five childrenó Cecil Calvert, Edna Blanch, Erven Edward, Troy Samuel and Alverta May.

    She passed away August 24th at the farm home northwest of Rossville to which she came as a bride.

    Mrs. Lemon was a faithful member of the Rossville Christian Church and attended services as long as health would permit.

    Her husband and two sons have preceded her in death. Mr. Lemon passed away June 7, 1927; Erven on February 26, 1899 and Cecil, June 26, 1948.

    She leaves to mourn her passing, two daughters, Mrs. Edna Wade of Silver Lake, Mrs. Alverta Carrel of Rossville and one son, Troy Lemon of St. Marys. There are fifteen grand children and fifteen great-grandchildren. Three sisters and three brothers also survive: Mrs. Laura DeGraff of Shawnee, Okla., Mrs. Fannie Howerton of Gentrie, Arkansas, and Mrs. Minnie Dolan, of Lamont, Okla; John Kirby, Guy Kirby and Troy Kirby, all of Lamont, Okla.

    To have known this good woman was a privilege and she leaves many friends and neighbors to mourn her passing.

    Funeral services were held Saturn day afternoon at 2:30 at the Christian Church with Mr. Orel Newbrey, of Downs, Kansas, in charge.

    Music was furnished by Mrs. Maxine Trimble and Mrs. Lorene Parr, with Edith Higginbotham at the piano.

    Pallbearers were eight grandsons, including Harold Lemon, Virgil Lemon, Clyde Lemon, Don Lemon, Jas Wade, Benjamin Wade, Thomas Wade, and Leslie Carrell. Burial was in the Rossville Cemetery.
