    • OBITUARY
      A GOOD WOMAN
      ...Passed Away at Xenia, Ohio, After Long Illness.
      The following account of the death of a well-known Gallia County, girl is taken from the Xenia Daily Republican of Friday March 27, 1914:
      ...A beautiful life, full of love and tender devotion to her home and little children, came to a close today in the death of Mrs. Ada Clark Lackey, wife of Dr. Bert L. Lackey, well known dentist, who passed away at her home 20 Home Avenue, twenty minutes after ten, Friday morning. Mrs. Lackey had lain in an unconscious condition for hours preceding the end and death came peacefully and quietly. Cancer, which became apparent November 7 a year ago, was the immediate cause of death and during the weary months when she was confined to her home, Mrs. Lackey displayed a beautiful Christian fortitude bearing her sufferings without a murmur, except for her little ones, from whom death would separate her. Her husband and children have the sympathy of her scores of friends in their great bereavement.
      ...Ada Clark Lackey was born November 7, 1871, at Raccoon Island, Gallia county, and was a daughter of Hon. Amos Clark, at one time a member of the State Board of Equalization, and a prominent retired farmer, broker and merchant of that place. Mr. Clark died at the Lackey home in this city, June 4, 1912. Her mother passed away when Mrs. Lackey was but three years of age, but a step-mother gave her and her brother and sister all of the tender care of a mother. She survives and lies in Gallipolis, Ohio.
      ...Mrs. Lackey finished her education at Lebanon National Normal institute and at Ohio Wesleyan university at Delaware, where she took a special art course. For a time she taught penmanship in the public schools of Manchester and in 1891 came to Xenia where she was appointed instructor in penmanship and bookkeeping at the O. S. & S. O. Home, which position she held for nine years. It was here that she met Dr. L. B. Lackey, and their marriage was solemnized September 10, 1902. They went to housekeeping within a short time in a newly built home on Home avenue, where they had lived ever since. Mrs. Lackey leaves her husband and three little children, Clark, Dorothy and Helen, the youngest of whom is only three years of age.
      ...Mrs. Lackey united with the Clay Chapel Methodist church at Raccoon Island when but 11 years of age, and retained her membership there until she came to Xenia when she joined the First Methodist church. She was a true Christian mother, and the interests of her little family were always first in her mind. She was greatly beloved and admired in her circle of friends.
      ...Mrs. Lackey's sister, Mrs. J. B. Ewing, had been with her several weeks preceding her death, and with her brother, J. S. Clark who had frequently visited her during her illness was at her bedside when death came. They are the only surviving members of her immediate family.
      ...Funeral services will be held at the home Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock and will be in charge of the Rev. Charles W. Sullivan, of the First Methodist church. Burial will be made at Woodland cemetery. [Source: Original newspaper clipping: The Gallipolis Bulletin, March 27, 1914]
