Last Rites For Mrs. F.V. Wiles
Funeral services for Mrs. F.V. Wiles were held Friday afternoon at the Methodist church, conducted by the Rev. J.R. Williams, and the many beautiful floral offerings show the high esteem in which Mrs. Wiles was held in the community. Mrs. Wiles was one of those persons who richly deserve the cognomen "salt of the earth." She was a wonderful wife and mother, a good neighbor and a faithful friend. She was essentially a "home body" very rarely seen outside the confines of her abode, but many visitors found their way to the Wiles' home to bask in the warm hospitality of this fine farm family. Though we may no longer feel the touch of this good woman's hand, her influence will live in the community for time untold.
Cassie May Hart, daughter of Lovica and Joseph Hart, was born near Corydon, Iowa, Nov 26, 1874 and passed away March 14, 1944 at the age of 69 years, 3 months and 17 days. She was the ninth child of a family of 13 children, all of whom have preceded her in death except one sister and two brothers.
When a small child, she accompanied her parents to McPherson county, Kansas. She grew to womanhood near Galva, Kansas, and was united in marriage with Frank V. Wiles on Nov 13, 1895, at Canton, Kansas. To this union three children were born; one son, Lester Ray died in infancy. She is survived by her husband, Frank V. Wiles; 2 children. Hugh C. Wiles, Ponca City, Okla. and Beulah A. Wiles of the home address; one sister, Mrs. Sarah Scott of McPherson, Kansas; two brothers, Albert C. Hart of Corydon, Iowa and Elmer A. Hart of Wichita, Kansas; 2 grandchildren, Miss Margaret Wiles of Washington, D.C. and Hugh D. Wiles of Ponca City, Okla.
In 1913, she with her husband, moved to Labette county, and she has resided on their farm northwest of Mound Valley, since that time.
