The 18th of October, 1931, the deceased entered into holy matrimony for the second time with Mr. Alvin Garber. A few months after her marriage she had to undergo a very serious operation from which she recovered quite will, as it appeared. But a little later it became evident that she was not so well as expected. Her health began to fail, that at times, she felt too weak to do her work. Sunday, December 29, when returning home from her uncle and aunt’s she suddenly collapsed, due to a weak heart. At first it looked as through she might recover but Tuesday towards evening her condition got worse being unconscious the most of the time from then till she departed New Year’s morning about 3:20.
