Note: lips. Crash Injuries Result in Death for Knial Kissee. A well-known Sparta stockman and walking horse fancier, Knial Kissee, 52, died at 6:40 o’clock Sunday night in Burge Hospital, Springfield of head injuries sustained in a two car crash late Saturday night on Highway 13, north of Springfield. Mr. and Mrs. Kissee were returning from a horse show in Bolivar when Kissee’s 1959 Ford struck a 1956 Ford sedan driven by 17-year-old Robert Cunningham, 1626 South Fremont, Springfield. Highway patrolmen reported young Cunningham’s car passed a stop sign and drove from a side road into the path of the Kissee auto. Cunningham was hospitalized with multiple lacerations of the face and rib fractures and his passenger, Ruth Pyle, 17, of Springfield was treated for a gash over her left eye. Mrs. Dema Kissee, riding with her husband, suffered severe bruises, but was released from the hospital Tuesday. Mr. Kissee was a native of Christian County and a son of the late Rich Kissee. He followed his father into the cattle business and was active in the Ozark Commission Company at the Union Stock Yards, Springfield. He also operated extensively as a feeder and dairyman with his son, Knial Kissee, Jr. He was widely known throughout midwestern states as a walking horse breeder, and as owner of the famous walking mare, Black Angel, which swept honors at horse shows throughout the country. Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Wednesday in the Sparta Baptist Church, with Rev. E. N. Webb, Rev. Donald Linebarger and Rev. Eugene Roberts officiating. Burial was in Sparta Cemetery under direction of Chaffin Funeral Home of Ozark. Mr. Kissee is survived by his wife, Mrs. Dema Kissee, one son, Knial Kissee, Jr., a daughter, Miss Adeline Kissee; a brother, Ellis Kissee of Ozark; two sisters, Mrs. Elza Sherrow of Ozark and Mrs. Pearl Raper of Fresno, Calif.
