Huntzicker, Mrs. Victor #2 (1876 - 10 MAY 1899)
The brief announcement in last week’s Times of the death of Mrs. Victor E. Huntzicker was based upon telegraphic information, which proved to be true. Her remains and those of her baby, who had died two weeks before, were brought here (Neillsville, Clark Co., Wis.), arriving Saturday, accompanied by the husband and father, Mrs. H.M. Root and Miss Ollie Huntzicker, from Salt Lake City, and were buried Sunday afternoon, the services being held a the Root residence at 2 o’clock, Rev. Moran, pastor of the first Episcopal Church of Eau Claire, officiating. The ladies’ club attended in a body, presently cream roses. Mrs. Huntzicker was a highly valued member of the club.
Mrs. Huntzicker had a large circle of friends here who deeply mourn her death and the peculiarly sad circumstances. Accompanying it - the loss of her babe, also the death, during the preceding year of other relatives in the eastern part of the state. To Victor the community gives its entire sympathy. The gentle soul who has departed had won her way into the hearts of all who met her, for she was all that a lady could be, possessing in a large measure, sweetness of character, brightness of mind and most amiable disposition.
The last services were attended by a very large concourse of friends from this city and Greenwood, also relatives from abroad.
The Salt Lake Herald of Thursday, May 11, contains the following:
"The sudden death of Mrs. Victor E. Huntzicker of First St. will be a very great shock to her friends. Although they have been residents of the city but a few months, Mr. and Mrs. Huntzicker have made many friends, who will sympathize deeply with the family in its bereavement.
Mrs. Huntzicker has only been ill for about three months. About the end of January she suffered from la grippe. On Feb. 14 her daughter was born, and following this the mother suffered from a malignant attack of puerperal sepsis. From this she never recovered, although the immediate cause of her death was acute tuberculosis.
It had been hoped by her friends and by those who have attended her that she would rally, until the past few days, when she seemed to lose strength rapidly.
The deceased was born in Berlin, Wis., and was only 22 years of age. She leaves, besides her husband, her mother, Mrs. Margaret J. Millard, who is entirely prostrated over her daughter’s sudden departure.
The little daughter died a few weeks ago, and since that time Mrs. Huntzicker has failed rapidly.
The remains of mother and child were taken to Neillsville, Wis. this morning. Mr. Huntzicker will accompany the bodies, together with his mother, Mrs. Root, and Mrs. Willard. After performing his ??? return to Utah to dispose of some business maters that await his attention.
Mr. and Mrs. Huntzicker had only been married two years, and have been residents of Utah for less than six months.
