      MRS. LOIS GRACE CHESTER

      Miss Lois Grace Slawson was born September 4, 1881, in Henry County, Ill., and died at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. H.E. Slawson, in Bedford, on Sunday, January 31, 1909.
      In 1883 she moved with her parents to Bedford, where she grew to young womanhood, beloved by all. In 1901, she united with the Baptist Church, and she has since been a faithful member. In 1903 she was united in marriage to Mr. A.B. Chester, and they then moved to Kansas City. She was the mother of two children, ruth and Raymond, the former dying in infancy. In 1907 she was seized with pneumonia, which later developed into tuberculosis. When these symptoms became apparent, they moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where for a time it seemed that she would be able to throw off this dread disease, but it was not to be and she returned to Bedford two weeks ago, to die amid the home scenes of early life.
      She leaves a fond husband and parents and one child, to mourn Her death, also two brothers and one sister.
      The funeral was held Monday afternoon at the Baptist Church Tuesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. McMasters. The interment was in the Bedford Cemetery.
