Swarthout, Eva Marion (5 Sept. 1857 - 24 Apr. 1939)

Mrs. Eva M. Swarthout died Monday morning at Spencer at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Lottie E. Brown, old age complications being the cause of her death. The past two months she had been confined to her bed. Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at the Swarthout Funeral Home, Rev. George R. Carver of Marshfield, Wisconsin, pastor of the M. E. church officiating, and burial was made in the Colby cemetery beside her husband, E. L. Swarthout, who preceded her in death twenty-five years ago.

Mrs. Swarthout, nee Eva Marion Hugoboom, daughter of the late Sullivan and Amelia Hugoboom, was born in Hancock Sept. 5, 1857.

Later she moved with her parents to Oshkosh, where her father was a member of the police force. After the Oshkosh fire, her parents moved to Dorchester and operated a hotel there. She was musically inclined, and also taught school before her marriage to E. L. Swarthout Jan. 26, 1880.

After her marriage she lived in Dorchester and Colby, and when her husband died, she moved to Abbotsford, Wis. For the past five years she has been making her home with her daughter. Mrs. Swarthout had been actively engaged in the Methodist Episcopal church activities, and the Sunday school.

Surviving relatives include a daughter, Mrs. Lottie E. Brown, Spencer, two sons, Joseph R. Swarthout, Milwaukee, and Blaine C. Swarthout of Spencer; a brother, R. W. Hugoboom, Dorchester; and 10 grand children and four great grand children.
