Last week in reporting the death of Helen, 7 year old daughter of Rev. and Mrs. Louis De Poister, we spoke of the critical condition of her mother, and shortly before going to press Mrs. De Poister passed away after an illness of little more than a week of the same affliction, typhoid fever, she having died at 12:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21st.
Funeral services, conducted by Rev. John R. Golden of Decatur, assisted by Rev. Hugh R. Davidson, were held at the Christian church this city at 2:30 p.m., Saturday. Interment was made in White Hall cemetery.
Mrs. De Poister's maiden name was Olive May Adcock, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. G. Adcock, and was born at Nilwood, Ill., Feb. 10, 1885, and was at the time of her death 32 years, 7 months and 10 days of age.
Jan. 2, 1902, she and Louis F. De Poister, who survives, were married. To this union were born two children, Helen Naomi, who passed away Sept. 16th; and Mershon, aged five, surviving. She is also survived by two brothers and four sisters: Charles Adcock, of Nilwood; Thomas Adcock, Litchfield; Mrs. Benj. Drake and Mrs. Roy Mayfield of Nilwood; Mrs. T. E. Jennings and Mrs. Acy Pritchard of Girard.
Deceased was a member of the Christian church, also of the Royal Neighbors and Rebekahs. She was a kind and affectionate wife and mother and will be sadly missed by a large circle of friends. Interment in White Hall cemetery.
Marshon, the 5 year old son of Rev. Louis F. Depoister, who has been suffering with typhoid fever for the past several weeks, has about recovered and is able to be up and about the house. As soon as he is fully restored to health he will accompany his father to Cushing, Okla., where Rev. De Poister is pastor of the First Christan church.
