Mead, Elenora (30 Jul 1844 - 24 MAY 1890)

Mrs. Elenora, wife of our esteemed townsman Egbert Mead, died at her home three miles south of this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) on Sunday last, aged 45 years, 9 months and 25 days. On March 2nd of the present year she was driving near Sterling when the horse got beyond her control, throwing her from the cutter and severely injuring her spine, causing paralysis, which finally resulted in her death. Three weeks ago she was taken to the Sisters' Hospital at Chippewa Falls, but returned here again on Wednesday of last week, having received no benefit by treatment. She was born at Dunnville, Alderman Co., Ontario, July 30, 1844, and was the mother of two children, Mrs. Joseph Parker and son Charles, by her first marriage. Some ten years since she removed with her present husband, with whom she had been united in marriage but a short time previously, to this place. Her funeral took place on Tuesday from the M. E. Church, Rev. J. E. Webster officiating, and was attended by a large concourse of friends and neighbors.
