Lucy Dora Haggard Churchill was born in Lincoln County, New Mexico on May 3, 1886. She removed with her parents to Day County (now Ellis County), Oklahoma in 1894. She was married to R.A. Churchill November 6, 1907. Died November 4, 1917, aged 31 years, six months and one day.
Practically all of her life from the age of 8 years was spent in the same community where her jolly disposition and her big kind heart endeared all who knew her.
For several years her health was very poor. Many times she seemed at death’s door both before and after an operation that seemed to finally result in complete recovery of her health. Then how great the shock to her friends when on Sunday evening, November 4th she was suddenly taken with a severe nervous attack resulting in the rupture of a blood vessel and with barely time to summon a doctor and a few nearest neighbors, she passed away.
She knew the end had come, bade her friends good bye and assured them that she was prepared and ready to go.
She leaves to mourn her loss, a husband, a father, a mother, three sisters and a brother.
