Never were the people of this community more shocked and saddened that when they learned last week of the sudden death of Mrs. Burton E Tuttle at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Lydiksen in the town of Unity.

With but a few hours of warning a happy home was robbed of its brightness, a loving wife was torn from the fond embrace of a devoted husband, three precious little children were made motherless by the unrelenting hand of death.

On Thursday the deceased attended a meeting of the Maple Grove Ladies Aid and was appranetly enjoying good health, Friday morning however she was not feeling well but accompanied her husband to the home of her parents where he was doing some work. Her condition became worse and as Dr. Clark was out of town. Dr. Strayer of Spencer was called. Everything that medical skill and kind hands of loving relatives and friends could do was of no avail, she grew rapidly weaker and at 11:30 Saturday she closed her eyes to things of this world ; her spirit had gone to its maker.

Researcher’s Note - She died on Saturday, Nov 19,1904.
