Blakely, Gladys (6 Apr. 1894 - Jan. 1916)
MRS. ALBERT BLAKELY DIED WEDNESDAY NIGHT
A great deal of sympathy is being expressed by local people for Mr. Albert Blakely over the death of his young wife, which occurred at the Blakely home near this city Wednesday night. The death of Mrs. Blakely, while not entirely unexpected, she having been ill for several weeks, is indeed a great shock to her many local friends and the community as a whole, as she was a sweet-dispositioned, generous and lovable lady, well liked and respected by all who had gained her acquaintance during her residence of a little more than a year in our community. Mrs. Blakely was born on the 6th day of April, 1894, and came to Bayfield a little more than a year ago with her husband, to reside upon the farm property he had purchased just west of here.
Funeral services for the deceased will be conducted tomorrow, the Rev. F. L. McKean officiating, and interment will be made in Greenwood cemetery.
The Press joins with all Bayfielders in extending sympathy to Mr. Blakely and other sorrowing relatives.
*** Note: Gladys spent part of her childhood in Clark County, Wisconsin. Her maiden name was Ladd.
