Nora (Stokes) O'Connell d. January 17, 1902


Mrs. Nora (Stokes) O'Connell, wife of John M. O'Connell, a telegraph operator, died at their home in Rolla at 1 a.m., Friday, Jan. 17, 1902, of an abscess and pulmonary complications, and was buried in the Jerry O'Connell family lot in the cemetery near Frank's, Saturday afternoon Jan. 18. Rev. J.B. O'Laughlin reading the funeral service and making a brief and touching address. There was a large attendance of sympathizing neighbors, friends, and relatives of both the deceased lady and bereaved husband. They had been married but little more than a year, and a couple of months ago had with resignation given up their babe to Almighty God.

Deceased was a daughter of Mrs. Sallie Stokes, of Crocker, and granddaughter of Mrs. E.G. Williams, of Waynesville. Deceased had, by virtue of the sacraments of baptism and matrimony, entered upon the Christian life, but had not become a communicant. She had ever lived according to the light vouchsafed her. May perpetual light shine upon her.

1902 Pulaski County Democrat
