gloom was cast over the community on Tuesday when
it was learned that death had claimed a resident of Windham in the
person of Miss Nellie Mudge.
Miss Mudge was in her usual
health until midnight Saturday, when she was seized with severe pain
in the stomach, followed by vomiting.
Dr. Zumstein and Dr. Tisdale
of Dehli were called at once, and late Dr. Hicks of Brantford
operated, in the hope of saving the patient's life, but death ensued
on Tuesday, at the age of 45 years.
The late Miss Mudge was a
woman who held the respect of all who knew her, and will be greatly
missed by many warm friends in the neighborhood.
The funeral took place on
Friday from her late residence to Windham. Services were conducted
by Rev. Hurlbut
of Delhi. Six lady friends of the deceased acted as pall bearers.
Miss Mudge is survived by
the following sisters and brothers:
Mrs. Kelly of Hamilton, Mrs. Whitrock of Blandford,
Mrs. J. W. Broughton, Mr. J. Mudge of Delhi,
Mr. C. Mudge of Innerkip, Mr. O. Mudge of Burford,
Mr. F. Mudge of Tain, and William and Ollie at home.
The floral tributes were
very beautiful, consisting of tokens from the family and numerous
friends. The sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved.
