Alice Bumgarner Quinn
Mrs. Alice Bumgarner Quinn, daughter of Edward and Naomi Bumgarner, was born in Shelbyville, Ind., June 22, 1849, and died Feb. 17, 1920, aged 70 years, 7 months, and 17 days.
At an early age she expressed her preference for a Christian life with its attendant joys and duties. It was shortly after her marriage to Winfield Worth Quinn, in 1869, that she joined the Church of God, and later united with the Baptist church, to which she ??? at the time of her death. Throughout her long life she led a long life of self-sacrifice which was a keynote of her character. To her husband, who survives her, she was a loving and affectionate helpmate, and her children a devoted chum and loving mother.
Two of her children, Bertha Quinn and Mrs. Goldie Button, preceded her into the great beyond. Her husband, four children, a sister and three half-sisters survive her. Those who survive her are: Winfield Worth Quinn, Mrs. Della Gard, of Athens, Texas, Mrs. Mary Foster and Winnie Quinn of Terre Haute; Edward Quinn, of Bloomington; Mrs. Martha Hosier of Greenup; Mrs. Jess Pippin , of Hidalgo; Mrs. Linne York, of Casey, and Mrs. Sarah Meeker, of Jamestown, North Dakota, besides a host of relatives and friends
