Mrs. Mary Dorothy POUTCH
The estimable wife of Charles W. POUTCH, died Saturday evening at her home, 150 Lower Main street, after an illness of several weeks. Several days before her death it was decided that her condition was such that a surgical operation would be necessary as a last resort. The operation was performed but she slowly sank until death released her from her sufferings. Mrs. POUTCH was born in this city nearly forty-one years ago. Her marriage to Mr. POUTCH occurred in 1881. She leaves one daughter, Miss Edna POUTCH, and one son, William POUTCH. She also leaves a sister, Miss Mae HERMAN. She was a member of Wesley chapel and was an esteemed Christian woman. The funeral services were held Monday afternoon at Wesley Chapel and there was a large concourse of sorrowing friends gathered to pay their last respects to the memory of the dead. The services were conducted by the Rev. E. R. Vest, of Seymour, formerly pastor of Wesley Chapel. The relatives and family of the deceased have the sympathy of all who know them.
