Thayer, Alice (25 Aug. 1889 - 26* April 1932) * Could be off

Mrs. W. J. Thayer, aged 63, died suddenly of heart failure Tuesday morning at her home on a farm near Curtiss.

Deceased was born at Loyal, her maiden name being Alice Dutcher. She was a successful teacher for several years before her marriage to W. J. Thayer, which took place Aug. 25, 1889. For a number of years Mr. and Mrs. Thayer had charge of the County Farm and were very successful in its operation and in the care of the poor people. Later they moved to Granton where Mr. Thayer engaged in the hardware business. In 1925 they sold out and moved to Abbotsford and later to the farm near Curtiss.

Mrs. Thayer was a lady of fine qualities and had many friends. Besides her husband she leaves four children: Edward of Albuquerque, New Mexico; Perry of Winona, Minn.; Mrs. Josie Thiede of Granton and Mrs. Alva Muhlenhaupt of Curtiss. One son died in infancy.

The funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Friday in Abbotsford; the Eastern Star of which she was a member, will take part in the ceremonies.

Burial will take place at Colby.

Mr. Thayer is in a hospital at Chippewa Falls, having suffered a stroke of paralysis about a month ago.
