Doig - In Coldwater, Kansas, on Saturday, October 4, 1902, Ruth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Doig, aged 6 months and 9 days.
Little Ruth Doig was an exceedingly bright and promising child, the pride and joy of her parents and a source of constant sunshine to all. The announcement of her death early on Saturday morning was a great shock to the entire community, coming as it did with scarcely any warning. Ruth had been in rather poor health for several days, but no apprehension was felt until late Friday evening when symptoms of either pneumonia or congestion of the lungs appeared. A physician was summoned and everything was done for the little sufferer, but shortly after 5 o'clock on Saturday morning life became extinct.
Burial took place at 2 p.m. on Sunday after a brief funeral ceremony had been conducted at the residence by Rev. J. C. Fisher, of the M. E. church. The bereaved parents have the sincere sympathy of the entire community. But in such an hour of sad bereavement human sympathy, although precious, does not fully satisfy the sorrow laden heart. To Him who "doeth all things well," in whose keeping is all life, and who is able to give comfort to hearts that are heavy laden, the sorrowing parents and friends are commended.
Infant Son of J.G. & V.M. Doig, brother of Ruth Doig.
James Rolla & Agnes L. (Wallace) DOIG, parents of James G. Doig, paternal grandparents of Ruth Doig.
Vivian Maude (Hakes) Doig, mother of Ruth Doig; wife of James G. Doig; daughter-in-law of James R. and Agnes (Wallace) Doig.
