Beardsley, Harriet (12 JUN 1891 - 28 APR 1927)

Mrs. C. O. Beardsley, formerly well known here, died unexpectedly of throat infection, after a brief illness.

More than ordinary pathos is attached to the death of Mrs. Harriet King Beardsley, wife of C. O. Beardsley of Marinette, Wis.. Death followed a throat infection, the abscess sending forth septic poison that permeated the entire system, claiming the life of the young wife and mother at 2 o'clock in the morning of April 28, 1927, at St. Joseph's Hospital, Menomonie, Mich., where she had been removed on Wednesday from her home at 1425 Garfield Ave., Marinette.

Mrs. Beardsley was born near Granton, Clark County, Wis., June 12, 1891, being at the time of her death 35 years, 10 months and 16 days of age. She is survived by her husband and five children: Sylvia, George, Robert, Russel and William; two brothers, George King of Niagara, and Timothy King of Green Bay; two sisters, Mrs. Floy Lee of Granton, Mrs. Ethel Fulwiler of Marinette, and her mother, Mrs. Clara King of Green Bay, the father having preceded her in death two months, and one brother, Forest King, having passed away seven years ago.

The final illness was of ten days' duration. The body was removed to L. D. Martin mortuary and later was taken to the family residence. The funeral was held Saturday afternoon at 2:30 from the first M. E. Church, of which Mrs. Beardsley was a member. The Rev. Alfred Hood officiated and interment was made in Forest Home Cemetery.
