Taylor, Olga (2 MAY - 15 OCT 1934)

Mrs. James W. Taylor died at the Luther Hospital, Eau Claire, Monday morning, following a week’s illness of peritonitis. For the past year or more Mr. and Mrs. Taylor have been making their home on a farm near Redwood Falls, Minn., and came to the Eau Claire institution seeking relief from her illness. She was 44 years of age, and leaves to mourn, besides her husband, one son and one daughter.

Mrs. Taylor for several years owned and operated the store at Wolter’s Corners, southwest of the village of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), and it was only a little more than a year ago that she was united in marriage.

Funeral services will be conducted this afternoon from the Wolter’s Corners Chapel with the Rev. W.P. Powell, pastor of the Congregational Church of Owen officiating, and burial will take place in Riverside Cemetery.

The bereaved family have the heartfelt sympathy of a large number of relatives and friends.
