Lawrence, Chas. Mrs. (1864 - 24 Mar. 1910)

Warren Lafee received a dispatch, last Thursday night, from Walton, Marinette county, announcing the death of his sister-in-law, Mrs. Chas. Lawrence, and on Friday left, accompanied by his son, Ress, to attend the funeral, which was held on Saturday, at Menomonee, Mich., where she died in the hospital following an operation for appendicitis. Mrs. Lawrence was known to some of the older settlers, having visited here with Mr. Lafee’s family. They returned home Monday.

Mr. Lafee informed us that his daughter Hazel, Mrs. Sawyer, was also in a hospital at Marinette and might have an operation for appendicitis. She was feeling much better when he left for home.
