DEATH COMES SUDDENLY TO TWO GRADEN COUNTY
WOMEN FIRST OF WEEK
Mrs. Matt Cunningham And Mrs. A.E. Musolf Are Both
Victims Of The Grim Reaper
The community around Lisco was shocked early Monday morning when it became known that Mrs. Matt Cunningham had passed away. She had been sickly for some time but at no time was it thought that her condition was serious. The Cunningham family had been living on the farm of Mrs. Lydia Wallace until recently, when they moved over south of the Platte river in the Coombs meadows, where they intended living in a tent for a time and trapping rats.
About six o'clock Monday morning she was busy getting the breakfast when she placed her hand on her head and exclaimed that she was ill and that she did not believe she could finish the breakfast. She expired within a few minutes. It is presumed that heart trouble was the cause.
Her husband and several children survive her.
Funeral services were held yesterday at Evergreen cemetery on the west table and the remains were tenderly laid to rest in the cemetery near that church a large congregation of friends attending the services.
Full obituary will be published next week if we are able to secure it. We join with the other friends of this good family in extending sincere sympathy.
