Smith, George Huntington (? - July
George Huntington Smith, born in
Neillsville 84 years ago, was found dead in the bathtub at the home
of his daughter, at 939 Oxford Ave., Los Angeles, Cal.
While his daughter and her husband, Mr.
and Mrs. Robert Work, were watching television, Mr. Smith went to
take a shower. After some time passed the Works
couldn’t hear any noise. Mr. Work entered the bathroom
through a window and found him. Apparently he had slipped and
knocked a shampoo bottle in the tub, fell on the broken bottle and
severed an artery in his arm. He bled to death.
Mr. Smith came here recently from Florida
to visit his two daughters, both of whom live in the same apartment
building where he died. He was in good health and had visited
his old friend, Mrs. Elva (Huntley) Richardson, recently.
He was born in Neillsville to Mr. and
Mrs. Gus Smith. They lived on the North side. While still a
young man he went to Chicago, and later spent some time in
He leaves his two daughters, Mrs. Robert (Lucille) Work and Mrs. Florence Stoehr. Funeral services were held July 31, in Santa Monica. The body was shipped to Chicago for burial. - Lydia Barton reporter.
