Josephine Celia (Crowe) Burkhall

The Western Star, November 22, 1918.


Mrs. R. E. Burkhall, for many years a resident of this county, died at her home near Stafford, Kansas, at 8 o'clock a.m. on Wednesday, November 6, after a two weeks' illness. The news came to her many friends in this county with a keen sense of sorrow, for she was esteemed by all and her sickness and death deprived them of one of the best of friends.

Josephine Celia Crowe was born in Iowa on April 3, 1878. On March 2, 1878, in Anderson-co., Kansas, she was united in marriage with R. E. Burkhall. Two or three years later Mr. and Mrs. Burkhall moved from Linn-co., Kans., to Comanche-co., settling six miles north of this city. There they continued to live until about three years ago when they moved to Stafford-co.

Mrs. Burkhall was a devoted wife and mother, a good neighbor and friend to all. Hers was a life of faithful christian service for her loved ones and her friends. That is why she will be so much missed in the home and in the community.

She is survived by two sons, Francis and Roy, one daughter, Mrs. Glenn Robbins, her father, Joshua Crowe, and five brothers, Dan and Guy Crowe of Kiowa-co., Jasper and Dave Crowe of Barton-co., and John Crowe, whose home is in western British Columbia or Alaska.

Interment was made on Thursday, November 7, in the Stafford cemetery.

Roy Cecil Burkhall, son of Josephine (Crowe) Burkhall.
