Ray, Margaret (28 NOV 1897 - 16 MAY 1928)

Many friends in this vicinity (Humbird, Clark Co., Wis.) were grieved Wednesday afternoon when word was received that Miss Margaret Ray had passed away after a short illness at 10:40 that forenoon. Miss Ray was employed at Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire, and a few weeks ago suffered an attack of scarlet fever, from which she apparently recovered. Death was caused by flu and complications. The remains were brought to this village Wednesday night, and funeral will be held at St. Joseph’s Church this Saturday morning. Miss Ray was a member of the local R.N.A. camp.
