Mrs. F. P. Ainsworth passed quietly away at her home on Fifth St., at an early hour Friday morning, May 11, 1928. She ad been in poor health for some years past, but had not bee critically ill until the past few weeks, during which time she was under the constant care of a nurse.

Mrs. Ainsworth, whose maiden name was Nettie Ott, was born in Madison March 7, 1856. She spent her girlhood there, and later lived in Chicago, Chillicothe, Ohio, and Wyoming. She was married to Franklin Pierce Ainsworth at Madison in January 1883.

Mr. and Mrs. Ainsworth went to Hammond, Wis., to live and remained there till 1889, when they moved to River Falls.

The daughter was with her for more than a week previous to her death and the son was here from time to time to visit her during her last illness.
