Mrs. Elizabeth Mitchell Hutcheson, widow of Thomas Hutcheson, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. S. C. McClellan, Olathe, Kans., October 12, 1916, in the 85th year of her age. She was born November 3, 1831 in Muskingguire County, O.; was married in Logan County, O., to Thomas Hutcheson in August of 1852; moved to Kansas in 1865, and settled on the place where she finished her earthly course. She was the mother of eleven children, seven of whom survive her: J. A. of Montesano, Wash.; Matthew of Morning Sun, Ia.; Dr. Robert of Kansas City; William of Sterling, Kas.; and S. Rutherford, Mrs. J W. McGee and Mrs. S. C McClellan of Olathe. She is survived also by two brothers and one sister: W. S. Mitchell of Olathe, Dr. Matthew Mitchell and Miss Maggie Mitchell of Topeka. She leaves to mourn her death thirty-two grand children and sixteen great grandchildren. She was a life long member of the Reformed Presbyterian Church. Born of Christian parents and surrounded by religious environment, she has said that she cannot remember the time when she did not love the house of God. Conscious of short-comings, she relied on the blood of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins. The closing years of her life were passed in weakness and considerable suffering, yet in Christian faith and fortitude. She waited patiently for the Lord. The funeral service was conducted from the house on Saturday afternoon, by her pastor, Walter C. McClurkin, assisted by J. A. Monteith, and interment was made in the cemetery near Pleasant Ridge.
