Sexton, Lizzie G. (23 SEP 1858 - NOV 1907)

Miss Lizzie Grace Sexton, daughter of George Sexton, died at their home on Vine St. on Friday of last week after a short illness, of congestion of the lungs. Though ailing for some time, Miss Sexton has not been ill and her death came as a sudden shock to friends and neighbors. The funeral was held at 1:30 Monday afternoon from the home of W.A. Sexton, Rev. Postelthwaite conducting the service. The pallbearers were J.F. Bole, E. E. Winch, I.P. Tiffualt, C.S. Vedder, Chas. Foster and E.M. Deming.

The deceased was born at Spring Lake, Wis., Sept. 23, 1858, and after spending her early youth in the schools, taught for several years. She came to this city with her parents in 1893 and has since devoted herself to the care of her mother, now deceased, and her father whose health is feeble. Her death closes a life of usefulness and responsibility, generously consecrated to the welfare and comfort of others. Miss Sexton is survived by her venerable father, her sister, Mrs. E.V. Kautsky of Colby, Clark Co., Wis., and her brother, W.A. Sexton. (Marshfield Times)

Mrs. Kautsky was with her sister at the time of her death. The family was down to attend the funeral.
