Ludington, Mary (24 Jan 1853 - 28 Jun 1898)

A telegram was received from G. A. Ludington at Camp Douglas, that his wife had died suddenly of heart disease, at the home of her sister in Chicago, where she went on Monday last. The news was a shock to all who saw Mrs. Ludington at the train the day she left, as she was seemingly in good health and the best of spirits. The remains were brought back to this city (Neillsville, Clark County) on the early train today, and the funeral will take place at two o'clock this afternoon from the late home.

Died, Mrs. Mary Ludington, at the home of her sister in Chicago, last Tuesday, June 28, 1898, of heart trouble, aged 45 years, five months, three days.

Mary Teller was born at Cooperstown, Seigel County, N.Y., Jan. 24, 1853. At the age of 6 she, with her parents removed to Iowa, where after several years they located at Beaver Dam. In 1862 they removed to Black River Falls, where on Oct. 13, 1869 she was united in marriage to George A. Ludington. To this union were born four children, three of whom survive, viz.: Albert, Mrs. Carrie Lacey, and Marie.

They settled permanently in this city 21 years ago. Prior to this they had resided her for a short time, moving from Black River Falls. They also resided in Alma Center.

Mrs. Ludington's death was very sudden. She had, in company with her daughter, Mrs. Lacey and mother Mrs. O'Neill, gone o Chicago on a visit to her sister, arriving Monday. She was seemingly in good health up to within a few moments of her death, and before a physician could be summoned, had breathed her last.

The remains were brought here Thursday on the morning train, interment taking place the same afternoon, Rev. T. G. Owens, of Arcadia officiating.

Mrs. Ludington was a member of the Royal Neighbors, W.R.C. and Rebeckah's lodges, and devoted considerable work to their advancement. She was a lady beloved by the entire community, and in her sudden demise the husband is bereft of a loving helpmate, the children of a beloved mother, and the community of an energetic worker, and she will be missed from every circle.
