The Caddo Herald
November 2, 1928
Mrs. W. R. Crossett
My mother is dead- the woman who bore, who cared for me, who nourished me- has gone the way of all the earth. She lived a useful life, one of kind deed as well as kind words. Nine children still live to call her blessed. She lived a busy life. The toll taken by time and toil finally sapped the strength of a sturdy frame.
Mrs. W. R. Crossett died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. L. M. Wood, in Caddo at 8:40 am. Thursday. Had she lived until Sunday she would have reached the age of three score and nineteen, seventy-nine years. She is survived by Mrs. J. W. Gardner, Mena, Ark.; Mrs. H. I. Enos, Wilmar, Calif.; Mrs. Odus Ford, Konawa, Ok.; Mrs. H. S. Shackelford, Wynnewood, Ok. ; Mrs. W. E. Schooler, Hugo, Ok. ; Mrs. B. Payne, Wapanucka, Ok.; Mrs. L. M. Wood, Caddo, Ok.; Roy E. Crossett, Soper, Fay L. Crossett, Davis, and Guy A. Crossett.
The funeral will be held in the Methodist Church at Davis, Okla. Friday afternoon at 3 o’clock, burial beside her husband in Davis Cemetery.
Mrs. Crossett had lived here most of the past eight years since the death of her husband, though making frequent trips to see the other children.
She was a consistent member of the Methodist Church, active in its work- she loved its institutions, and revered its teaching- and her children all followed in her footsteps.
She was the best woman that I ever knew. Henceforth there is laid up for her a crown and a home not made with hands.
