Maybell Anna Daggett was born, May 3, 1877, at Milton, Wisconsin. She died January 5 at her home in Coldwater, Kansas. The deceased was made an orphan at an early age, her father having died when she was two and her mother when she was but twelve.
She was married to Arthur Hager, July 7, 1896. To this union four children were born, three of whom survive the mother: Geo. E. of Tulsa, Okla., Arthur L. and Ruth Olive of Coldwater, Ray having died in infancy.
On July 18, 1914, the deceased was married to John Behler. The husband with the above names children mourn the loss of a mother and wife.
Mrs. Behler was a member of the Baptist Church in Tulsa, Okla.
She was for nearly three years before her death, an invalid. Her affliction, however, did not rob her of her faith and trust in God. When others would speak of her suffering she with a smile would remark: "But there are hundreds whose afflictions are greater than mine." Such attitude toward life cannot but help those who remember her.
Funeral services were held at the Coldwater Methodist Church, Tuesday afternoon at three o'clock, the Rev. C. C. Brown in charge.
Interment was in Crown Hill cemetery.
