Sunday Obituary: Sara Ella Gibson (nee, Gurwell, 1865-1918)

This is more of an announcement than an obit, but it is as much as she got.  From the Humboldt Union, January 2, 1919 --

Death of Mrs. Charles Gibson.
   The body of Mrs. Charles Gibson was brought here Tuesday afternoon from Augusta, Kan., and burial was in the old Ellison cemetery.  Her death is reported to have been caused by cancer.  The Gibson family formerly lived in this community.  Mrs. Gibson was a sister of Mrs. Lou Carl and R.W. Gurwell.  Other relatives live in this locality.
Sara Ella Gurwell Gibson was my great-grandmother on my mother's paternal side.
