Twelve years ago, in 1936, she left this community, moving to Brillion, Wis., in Calumet Co., where she resided for nine years before moving to Merrill, Wis., where she has made her home with her son Roy for the past three years.
She succumbed to a long lingering illness on Friday morning, May 7th, in the hospital at Merrill where she had been a patient for the past six months.

McGrady of Rockridge, Ohio, Mrs. Jack (Emma) Stiverson and Marth, who also reside in Ohio; two brothers, Pearl Kuhn and Lewis, who homes are also in Ohio, and four grandchildren, Betty, Richard and Bobby Blair, and Alice Wittrock.
