      Susie Marchant, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Marchant, was born in County of Kent, near London, England, October 20, 1852.

      At the age of six years she moved with her parents to Toledo, Ohio, later settling near New London, Iowa. She was united in marriage to Joseph Franklin Hale, December 1880, who preceded her in death August 24, 1927. To this union six children were born, R. W. Hale of Enid, Mrs. J. B. Frost of Waukomis, D. E. Hale of near Marshall, C. C. Hale of Wichita, Kans., Miss Grace Hale and Mrs. Flossie Barkley of the home in Enid, all of whom survive her; also twelve grandchildren and two great-grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. Amelia Simpson of Oregon City, Oregon, other relatives and a host of friends.

      After failing in health the past few months, Mrs. Hale passed away March 28, 1935, at 1:30 p.m.

      She was confirmed in the Episcopal church in her teens. Later in years she with her husband united with the Congregational church in Hillsdale. Funeral services were held Saturday morning at the Dunlavy chapel at 10 o'clock with Rev. D. L. Doub of Barr officiating. Interment was made in the Enid cemetery. Pall bearers were her grand sons.

      You cannot say, you must not say
      That she is dead, she is just away!
      With a cheery smile and a wave of hand
      She has wandered into an unknown land,
      And left us dreaming how very fair
      It needs must be, since she is there;
      So thinking of her faring on, as dear
      In love of there as the love of here;
      Think of her as still the same, and say
      She is not dead?she is just away!

      Card of Thanks

      We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks for the many deed of kindness and the many comforting words of friends and neighbors, to the singers for the selection of songs and to Rev. D. L. Doub. May God's richest blessings rest on all who were so kind. ?Mr. R. W. Hale, Mrs. J. B. Frost, Miss Grace Hale, Mr. D. E. Hale, Mrs. Flossie Barkley, and C. C. Hale.
