The Life of Mary (Mollie) Lawrence
MOLLIE (MARY) LAWRENCE
On Friday, January 13th, 1888, Mrs. Mollie, wife of James J. Lawrence, at her home a few miles west of Olathe, in her thirty-eight year.
No more! Gone, in the bloom of womanhood; cold and still in the peaceful quiet of death. The dark shadow fell upon the household after hours of suffering which she bore unmurmuringly with angelic sweetness of spirit and fortitude, but at last the death angel came with icy touch, chilled and throbbing head, stilling the current of life and left desolate the home she adorned, sorrowing the circle she graced and paralyzed with grief the fond husband and affectionate children and near relatives.
Mrs. Lawrence came to Kansas in 1857 from Iowa; she has a brother and sister residing in this county, E.J. McCleary, and Mrs. Francis Cranston of DeSoto, who, together with the bereaved family share the sympathy of the community. Mrs. L. leaves a family of six children, one of whom is an infant of just 2 weeks.
