|Death: ||Dec. 21, 1894|
Mrs. Irvin N. Starbird, of 231 Hazle Avenue, died this moning shortly before 10 after an illness of prolonged duration from heart disease and dropsy.
She was aged but 25 years and a few months and was married to Mr. Starbird a year and a half ago.
Deceased was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. I. P. Long and blessed with many womanly virtues.
While several of the years of her young life were years of suffering, she was wonderfully patient and frequently cautioned those nearest to her not to worry on her account - that all was well with her. She was especially devoted to her home and husband, her only regret in leaving this world for a brighter and better one, was that there were loved ones here whom it was necessary for her to leave behind.
Mrs. Long is survived by her husband, her father and mother, brother, Willard, and sister, Miss Florence. She was a niece of C. Bart Sutton deputy sheriff, and Editor Bogert, of the Leader.
