Waters, Elizabeth (1915? - 9 FEB 1920)

Elizabeth Waters, the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Willard Waters of Humbird, Clark County, Wis., died Monday Feb. 9, 1920 at the home of her grandparents, Mrs. and Mrs. Wm. Free. About Jan. 10th, Mr. Waters went to the hospital in Rochester, Minn., for a surgical operation and his wife being there with him a part of the time, their little girl aged about four and a half years and their little boy about two years, were brought over here to stay at their grandparents' home. Both children became sick with the measles and Sunday night the little girl was taken with croup, and although every method known to medicine was used to relieve her she died Monday afternoon. Mrs. waters had been here several days, but Mr. Waters, who had recently returned from the hospital was slowly convalescing at his home in Humbird. Elizabeth was a bright and beautiful little girl and her sudden and unexpected death has cast a deep gloom, not only in the home of her parents, but in the home of her grandparents as well, where she was a great favorite. The deepest sympathy is felt for all of them in this community. The little body was taken to Humbird for burial.
