She leaves to mourn her loss, an aged husband, three sons, Clifford and William of Loyal and Dumont of Butternut, ten grandchildren, two brothers, Lawrence and Robert Hayden of Maine, three sisters, Miss Olive and Anna Hayden of Maine and Mrs. Alice Day of Boston.

Mrs. Nutting was one of the pioneers of Clark County, having lived in the vicinity of Loyal 41 years. She was a woman of strong convictions and generous impulses and never forgot the hospitable ways of the pioneer. The deceased was a good neighbor, always ready to lend a helping hand in time of need. She has been a faithful member of the M. E. Church for over 40 years. In the last illness she suffered much but always bore her suffering with a Christian fortitude, looking for the coming of her Savior.

The funeral services were held Friday afternoon at the M. E. Church, Rev. E. E. Strevey officiating. She was laid to rest in the Loyal cemetery.

The family have the sympathy of all in their bereavement.
