Mrs. Ed Carter passed away at her home in the city of Owen early Saturday morning, October 1, 1947, at the age of 76. She had suffered for the past several months from a lingering illness for which there was no hope of recovery. Despite the seriousness of her illness, she still mustered enough strength to enjoy her close relatives and companions in her last moments of life.

Funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon, October 14, 1947, from the Griebenow Funeral Parlors with the Rev. M. Glick reading the final rites. Internment was made in the Riverside cemetery. Pallbearers at the service were: Julius Johnson, Harry Randall, Shirley Grimes, Russell Johnson, Dr. C. M. Toraason and Arnie Larson.

Edith Carter, nee Edith Tuttle, was born on July 22, 1881, at Wrightstown, Wisconsin. On December 25, 1887, she was united in marriage to Ed Carter at Glenwood, Wisconsin. Shortly after their marriage she and her husband moved to this city where they have since made their home establishing themselves as pioneer settlers of the city and by their righteous living have won the love and respect of its inhabitants.

Surviving her are her husband, a sister, Mrs. Nick Grimes, Owen, and a daughter. Mrs. Cressie Elliott, of Chicago. One daughter, Mrs. Gertrude Johnson, preceded her in death.

The only Edith Tuttle listed in the Lt. John Crozier Book was the fifteenth child of the third marriage of William S. Tuttle who was the second child of Renselear and Clarissa (Crozier) Tuttle. The book says she was born in Wrightstown, Brown County, WI on 22 Jul 1870. In re-reading the obituary I note that it says she was born in 1881 and married in 1887, which I think is a wee bit impossible. However a birth date of 1870 sounds a bit better. The Crozier book has only a birth date--no further information. Ol' Billy S. had a total of 19 kids from 3 marriages; 2 each from the first two marriages and 15 from the third. Edith's mother's maiden name was Hannah Brown. William was first married in 1835 to Lucy Ann Harriman; his second was in 1838 in Ohio to Lucy Parmelia Gray and the third in 1842 to Hannah.
