Sympathy Saturday - Hester Chinn Trapp

MRS. TRAPP IS DEAD.  Passes away at an early hour today after long illness.
Mrs. Hester Trapp died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Frank Wheatley, 173 Jefferson street at 4 o'clock this morning. The funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock at the Central Christian Church, of which she was a faithful member, Rev. I. J. Spencer officiating.

Mrs Trapp had been ill since last winter with a serious attack of grippe and had been confined to her bed about two months. She was about 61 years old.

Mrs. Trapp was the widow of the late J. D. Trapp, who was for some years manager of the Transylvania Printing Company when that concern published the "Apostolic Times" one of the ablest edited journals of the Christian Denomination. Mrs Trapp was the sister of County Clerk Claude Chinn and Mr. A. B. Chinn, of this city, and Mr. Joseph Chinn and Mrs. Elizabeth Bowman of Lexington, Missouri. She was the daughter of the late Dr. J. G. Chinn and is survived by the following loving children:  Dr. C. W. Trapp, Mr. David A. Trapp, Mrs. Ernest Longmire and Mrs. Frank Wheatley all of this city, and Mr. William C. Trapp, of Cleveland.

Mrs. Trapp was a devoted mother and a woman of fine Christian character whose death will be deeply and widely mourned.
