Margaret L. Faulkner

 

Mrs. Margaret L. Faulkner died at the home of her sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Sullivan, at 5:20 a.m. December 27, (1937).  She had been as arthritis invalid for nearly five years and her death was caused by this disease and its complications.

 

Before this fatal illness, Mrs. Faulkner had been living in San Antonio, Texas, since 1920, having business connection with the San Antonio Coffee Company.  Mrs. Faulkner was a member of the Business and Professional Women’s Club of San Antonio.  She was an active writer in newspaper work, and also an artist of marked ability, her work having won honors in the State of Texas Art Exhibit at Houston.

 

Mrs. Faulkner was stricken with acute arthritis at her home in San Antonio, in February 1933.  Her condition developed quickly into arthritis deformities, rendering her a helpless invalid.  She was brought back to New Castle in June, 1933.  Since then she lived alternately with her sisters, Mrs. Elizabeth Sullivan and Mrs. Mattie Y. Smith.  Through all the long years of her intense suffering Mrs. Faulkner retained her natural brilliance of mind, an ever buoyant hope for recovery, and always turned a bright and smiling face to all her friends – a cheeriness that to them was inspiration of greater courage.

 

Her funeral was held in the Funeral Parlors of McCarty and Ricketts in the residence of Mrs. Smith.  The funeral services , conducted by Rev. James Highfield, was beautiful in its simplicity – the reading of the 23rd Psalm and prayer, at her request.
