Balch, Grace L. (9 AUG 1870 - 28 FEB 1906)

The people were greatly shocked Wednesday to learn of the death of Mrs. Fred Balch, who passed away at 4:30 in the morning. Her death was due to pneumonia, and she had been ill only about two weeks.

Death, always sad, is much more harrowing when the young are claimed. Mrs. Balch was a beautiful young woman, a devoted wife and a loving mother. Her death is indeed a crushing blow to family and friends.

Grace Balch was a daughter of James Flynn. She was 35 years of age. She leaves a husband and one little son, Cleon, and her father and two brothers and two sisters, Floyd of Marshfield and Arthur and Mrs. Claude Sturdevant and Miss Hazel Flynn of this city (Neillsville, Clark Co., Wis.).

The time for the funeral had not been set at the hour of our going to press, but it is likely that it will occur Saturday.
