Addie Taylor Warren was born at Lancaster, Texas, June 14, 1860. She was married in early girlhood to John L. Warren, a childhood friend. Their lives were closely blended and their married life has been one of peculiar devotion. Being of pioneer stock, they preferred to frontiers and settled in New Mexico where they lived until they moved to this county about twenty-five years ago. She died at the family home west of town, December 30, 1918, a victim of the influenza scourge.
She is survived by an aged father, Uncle Perry Taylor, her husband; five children: Hilary Warren of Zybach, Texas; Mrs. Charles Cross, Henry Warren, Miss Myra Warren of Cheyenne and Mrs. W.L. Chalfant of Augusta, Kansas; three brothers, Stone, Eck and Edgar Taylor, and several grandchildren, nieces and nephews all of whom will keenly miss her loving ministration.
On New Years’ Day her body was laid to rest in the Cheyenne Cemetery, Cheyenne, Roger Mills County, Oklahoma, after a brief but impressive service at the grave, conducted by the Methodist pastor, Rev. A.A. McCleskey. A rarely useful life has ended. Always a tireless worker — of unusual strength of character; with a more than kindly heart and a large store of practical wisdom, she not only reared her family with marked success, care for an invalid mother many years, shared her home with her father, mother-in-law and bachelor brother, but always found time and opportunity to assist friends and neighbors in sickness and distress, to advise in time of trouble and rejoice with them in time of happiness and thanksgiving.
To the bereaved family we extend our deepest sympathies and thank God for a life whose influence has been so wide spread and helpful.
