1858 - 1931

Friends of Chandler and this community were sadly shocked Wednesday evening when they learned of the sudden death of Mrs. Mary Bouse, which occurred at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Mamie Dugan at Tulsa, at four o'clock Wednesday afternoon, following a few hours of illness.

Mary Ellen Stinson was born in Harrison County, Missouri, near Harrisonville, on March 5, 1858 where she grew to womanhood.
At the age of 16 years she was married to Francis Marion Bouse in Vernon County, Missouri. Later the family moved to Morning Star district near Chandler.
Nine children were born to this union. Frannie, James Arthur, Mayme, Elva, Bessie, George, Charlie, Mary and Etta.
George preceded his mother in death in 1908, and in 1910 the father died. In 1918 Charles Bouse was killed in battle while serving his country in France.
The surviving members of the family are Mrs. Fannie Anderson of Leavenworth, Kansas, Mayme Dugan of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Elva Beeman of Buffalo, Oklahoma, Bessie Presley of Kansas City, Missouri, Mary Ansberry, Etta Atkins and Arthur Bouse of Chandler.
Mrs. Bouse and daughter, Mrs. Mary Ansberry and Etta Belle Ansberry were returning from two week's motor trip to points in Kansas and Missouri, where they visited relatives and friends. They reached Tulsa and were visiting in the home of her daughter, Mrs. Dugan, when Mrs. Bouse was taken ill, and her condition grew steadily worse until the end came, Wednesday evening.
The body was brought to Chandler the same night.
Mrs. Bouse had lived in Chandler vicinity for many years and her friends are legion over the county. She was affiliated with the First Christian church in this city in 1914 and could always be depended upon to do her duty as she saw, and her many kind acts and words have sent a ray of sunshine into the lives of many here during her stay among us.
Funeral services were held from the First Christian church this Friday morning at ten o'clock, conducted by Rev. C. Merritt LaGrone, pastor of the Methodist church. Burial was made in Oak Park cemetery.
The sincere sympathy of a host of friends is extended the sorrowing loved ones.
