      Obituary
      -----
      HELEN REBECCA NICHOLS MOFFAT
      -----

      Helen Rebecca Nichols Moffat was born near Brockport, New York, Dec. 18,1845, and departed this life Jan. 25, 1921. Age 75 years, 1 month and 7 days.

      Miss Helen Nichols moved with her parents to Wisconsin when 18 years old, was united in marriage to Cyrus Moffat, Dec. 28, 1870 and with her husband moved to Fairmont, Nebraska in 1878, and from there moved to Curtis, Nebraska; and then to Custer County, Oklahoma in 1898.

      To this union was born the following children, Mrs. Grace Delaney, of Thomas, Oklahoma; Mrs. Maud Estes, of Leedy, Oklahoma; Mrs. Marcy Harmon, deceastd; Frank J. Moffat, deceased; Mrs. Elizabeth M. Wagner, of Sebastopol, California; and Edgar C. Moffat, of Stoneham, Colorado.

      The married life of the deceased was 50 years and 28 days.

      In addition to the above living children, the deceased leaves ten grandchildren and one great grandchild; one sister, Mrs. Scharlet Ripson of San Francisco, California; and one brother, A.L. Nichols, of Curtis, Nebraska.

      Mrs. Moffat's kindly christian life, in all its simplicity of goodness, always striving to her utmost to alleviate the sufferings of others, her ready help, always offered to the needy and afflicted, and her kindly disposition will ever be a guiding star to all who knew her, and to know her was to be her friend, and her friends are countless, who with the immediate relatives will mourn the loss of Grandma Moffat, as her guiding hand was always a comfort. The consolation is ours to know that her soul is resting in blissful peace, where she will await her loved ones and friends.
