Mrs. Elmer Dennis, a former well known and much loved Town of York resident died at her late home in Woodville, Wisconsin, about 4 o'clock last Tuesday morning as the result of an auto accident suffered the afternoon before when she, with her neighbor friend, Mrs. Holdback, were returning from a trip to St. Paul in the latter's Ford car, with Mrs. Holdback driving, and at a sharp curve in the road having another car crash into them with the result that Mrs. Dennis was thrown out and suffered such internal injuries as to cause her death. Mrs. Dennis was taken to a St. Paul hospital directly following the the accident and there rallying she did not think she was much hurt, medical examinations too, not revealing the extent of her injuries, she was allowed to return home with a friend that evening. The car which was little damaged was easily driven home by Mrs. Holdback. Mrs. Dennis not appearing well although complaining little, Mr. Dennis had their family physician attend her and he not discovering the seriousness of her injuries quieted their fears, while with the morning's dawn her soul took its flight to higher realms and left mourning in her immediate family, Elmer D. Dennis and their two sons, Eddie and Fred. Mr. Dennis and sons brought the beloved one's body here for burial Wednesday morning. Funeral services were held in the York Center church with Rev. Scott, the M.E. minister from Neillsville officiating. Interment was made in the York church cemetery beside the bodies of four of their children who preceded her in death. Deceased united with he Methodist church years ago at Sycamore, Illinois, and ever afterward continued a devout member. She was 54 years old and a dearly beloved wife and mother, an appreciated friend and neighbor who will be sadly missed by a very large circle of admiring relatives and friends. The pall bearers were chosen from among their old neighbors and were Webb Winn, A.W. Hales, W.J. Davis, John Pietenpol, Ed Soles, T.F. Lee.
