Dies in Colorado
A message was received here just before noon Tuesday telling of the sudden death of Mrs. Mary [Norris] Davis of this place who went to Colorado a short time ago to visit at the homes of her sons at Sterling and Fleming.

She had gone to Denver to visit her sister-in-law, Mrs. John Norris, and was stricken suddenly Tuesday morning with a heart attack, passing away about nine o'clock. A message was sent at once to her son Wm. Davis at Fleming, Colorado, who immediately called Miss Evadne Norris here by long distance telephone stating that he was leaving for Denver and would bring the body here for burial.

Mrs. Nellie [Robinson] Norris, mother of Mrs. Davis died at her home here December 10,1935, and her sister, Mrs. Happy Ginn, died last spring at her home in Lenox.

Miss Evadne Norris immediately on receipt of the telephone message wired for instructions regarding plans for the funeral service here.

LATER—The funeral will be held in the Christian church at two o'clock, Friday afternoon.
