Ireland, Nettie (3 APR 1872 - 27 Mar 1924)

The people of Abbotsford were shocked and grieved last Thursday afternoon when Mrs. Nettie Ireland passed very suddenly to the great beyond. She had started out with some friends to make a call on a sick friend and while walking along main street began to feel ill, saying she was unable to go on. Dr. Johnston was called and a driver of a nearby car volunteered to take her home. She was home but a few moments when she passed away, the cause of her death being heart failure.

Nettie Crosby King was born at Stockton, Portage Co., Wis., Apr. 3, 1872 and died March 27, 1924 being within one week of 52 years of age at the time of her death.

On March 10, 1891 she was united in marriage to Alexander Ireland at Stevens Point and for two years made their home in that city, moving to Abbotsford the later part of 1893.

Four children were born to them, Wesley, Anna, Charles and Jessie, now Mrs. Wm. Copeland. Two of the children, Wesley and Anna, preceded their mother to the grave. Besides her husband and children she leaves to mourn her death one brother, Charles King of Mellen, one sister, Mrs. Harry Heck of Chippewa Falls, two grandsons and one granddaughter.

Mrs. Ireland was well known in this town and neighboring ones as a nurse and brought her service and kindliness made friends far and near. A host of friends are grieving now many of who will sadly miss her.

Her many friends extend heartfelt sympathy to the sorrowing ones.
