Death of Mrs. Saltzberry

After being confined to her bed some two weeks, death relieved the sufferings of Mrs. Sarah M. Saltzberry, on Sunday morning last.

She had not been well for some months, but was only confined to the house for a short time when the end came. An affection of the throat and a weak heart was what ultimately caused her death and a week previous the doctor gave little hopes of her recovery.

On Saturday evening she was quite smart and cheerful, but before midnight she became worse and died about 5 a.m.

Mrs. Saltzberry was an estimable lady and not only beloved by her two daughters, who lived with her, but by her friends generally.

Those who survive are her two daughters, Jennie and Lillian, a son Fred, two sisters, Mrs. C. Hall and Mrs. J. W. Mott and a brother, Mr. Wm. Rammage of Toronto. The family have the sympathy of a large circle of friends.

The funeral took place Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, services being conducted at the house and the interment took place in Oakwood Cemetery in Simcoe.

The follow were the floral gifts by friends:
Mrs. Clifford, pillow;
Miss Kate Slaght, sweet peas and nasturtiums;
C. S. Walter, white carnations;
Mrs. York, star;
