YORK

Mrs. Luco Beach, wife of Solomon Beach, aged 70 years, died very suddenly Saturday morning, the 21st. She got up in the morning and went across the house; then called her husband and told him he had better get up and milk the cows before they went off into the woods. He arose and she went back and laid down on the bed. He noticed that she was breathing very heavily. He thought she was asleep and her head was off the pillow. He thought he would fix the pillow so she would rest better and took hold of her and tried to wake her, but could not. He called to his son Walter, who was upstairs, and told him to come down and wake his mother, as he could not. She only breathed a few times and was gone. She was buried today in the cemetery at York Center. Sermon by Rev. James Conners.
