Following many months of suffering, Mrs Ezra Chipman passed away at her ranch home in the Mason Creek Community last Sunday, when death came to relieve her of her trials. Some time ago Mrs. Chipman fell and sustained a broken hip and was taken to the hospital in Kerrville where she spent many months. After she improved and was able to be in a wheel chair she was brought home where she remained until she became ill again, to pass away Sunday.
Blanche Joiner Chipman was born on August 17, 1874 in Washington County, Texas, to Mr. and Mrs. William N. Joiner, Texas pioneers. With her parents, she moved to Bandera when she was a small child, and grew to lovely young womanhood in Bandera County. She was happily married to Ezra Chipman on January 15, 1896. Though no children were born to this union to bless their home, they reared her deceased sisters' three Mobley children, Mrs. Stella Hubbard of Temple, Texas; Mrs. R. L. Martin of Lake Charles, Louisiana; and J. E. Mobley of Los Angeles, California, who also survive, along with one sister, Mrs. Mark Davenport, of Bandera; and her life's companion for over 63 years, her devoted husband, Ezra Chipman; and other bereaved relatives
Funeral services were conducted at the Plummer Funeral Home Chapel on Monday afternoon, February 2, 1959, at 3 p.m. with W. V. James, pastor of the Bandera congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses officiating. Interment was made in the Bandera cemetery. Pall bearers were County Judge O. O. Adams, Ray F. Wyatt, C. Moore, Ace Radabaugh, Sidney Skinner and J. E. Ryan.
Mrs. Chipman was a devoted wife and mother, a good neighbor and friend and her passing will be mourned by a host of friends and relatives.
