Sturner, Gladys (*1905 - 21 FEB 1926)
Gladys Sturner, the only remaining daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John V. Sturner, died Feb. 21, 1926 at 10:30 A.M. at the age of 21 years. The young lady was confined to her bed with paralysis for the past year. A few years ago, Waunetta, also a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John V. Sturner, died of pneumonia.
None but those who have sat in the shadow of a great bereavement can justly weight such a sorrow as this. Those who have gone down into the valley of suffering and stood for months by the side of a loved one, as hope after hope dropped away, as the pedals drop from a fading flower, will, no doubt, continue to long for her.
Funeral services were held this Thursday, Feb. 18th, at 1:00 p.m., Rev. Rosenan of Colby, officiating. At the close of the solemn services, all were permitted to look for the last time upon the face of the departed; then the sad cortege moved on to the silent city. Yet He who doeth all things well, makes no mistakes. The human link snapped asunder on earth is forged anew in heaver. The yearning parents mourn no as one without hope.
