submitted by Yolanda Campbell Lifter
Miss Alma Haxel Jarrell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kessler Jarrell, died at her home near Wakefield, Saturday evening. Her death was caused by tubercular meningitis which developed after a fall from a fall from a bridge in February. She and a younger brother were in a buggy, and as it was dark, drove off the bridge.
Miss Jarrell was born September 29, 1902, in West Virginia and left her native state two years ago and came to Ohio with her parents. She taught school the year before leaving West Virginia and when her services were not needed at her home in Ohio she was employed at Portsmouth.
Miss Jarrell had a very kind disposition and won many new friends in Ohio. During her illness she was taken care of by her parents and kind friends and neighbors. She was converted before she died.
On Monday short services were held by Rev. Maxwell at the home before the family left for West Fork, W. Va., where interment was made. Besides her parents, two brothers and two sisters, a host of friends in Ohio, she leaves many relatives and friends in West Virginia to mourn her loss.
