Smith, Charlotte Myrtle (21 NOV 1880 - 11 AUG 1902)

Mrs. George J. Smith whose illness was noted in our last issue died at her home on the North Side (Neillsville, Clark County) at 8:35 o?clock Monday evening, Aug. 11, 1902. A brief ceremony was held at the residence Tuesday afternoon, Rev. A.V. Ingham officiating, the remains being taken on the midnight train for funeral ceremonies and burial at Clintonville, Wis., the home of her parents, accompanied by the bereaved husband, his father and uncle T.H. Barber, and relatives of the deceased. Charlotte Myrtle Huff, wife of Geo. J. Smith, was born at Randolph, Dodge County, Wis. Nov. 21st, 1880. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.J. Huff, who now reside at Clintonville. She was a lady of education and refinement and of a lovely Christian character. She was graduated from Clintonville High School and the Northwester Division High School of Chicago, and later attending the University of Minnesota. She was a musician of excellent taste and training, possessed of a loveable disposition, winning friends wherever she went. She was a member of the M.E. Church and had just had a letter to transfer her membership from Clintonville to the church in Neillsville, a short time previous to her death.

Last May, less than three months ago, she was married to George J. Smith and came to make her home in Neillsville, where she has in a brief time made a circle of warm friends who mourn her early death and who extend sympathy to the bereaved husband and relatives. She leaves a father, Mother, two sisters and two brothers. The remains will be laid to rest in Clintonville Cemetery at the sied of a brother who did two years ago at El Paso, Texas, and was brought home for burial. The father and mother, a sister of Mrs. C.W. Wright of Chicago and the brothers arrived before her death in time for a parting recognition.
