MRS. LESTER W. SCHULTZE OF RANSOM
DIES AT ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL
Residents of Ransom and vicinity are grieving today over the untimely death of Mrs. Helen E. Schultze, who passed away at St. Mary's hospital in this city at 2:40 p.m. Thursday, November 8th, following a brief illness of uremic poisoning. An infant born shortly before the death of the mother, also passed away.

She was a general favorite in and around the Ransom and also had many friends in Streator who are shocked at the news of her death. While it had been realized for several days that her condition was serious, it had been hoped that her splendid vitality would be able to combat the disease.
As Helen E. Hagi, Mrs. Schultze was born in Ransom on May 7, 1898, the daughter to Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hagi, her father being in the undertaking business. She has resided in Ransom all her life and was married on June 19th, 1918, to Lester W. Schultze.
