Found Dead In Bed At Her
Funeral and Burial Here Wednesday
--Leaves Only Her Husband
Mrs. Mary E. Young, a former resident of Paducah, was found dead in bed at her home in Cairo Sunday morning by her husband, Mr. Charles D. Young. Death is thought to have been the result of heart failure.
Mrs. Young had been feeling badly, but was able to be up Saturday as usual and was seen with many of her friends on the street. She was apparently in good health. She retired at her regular hour Saturday night and when Mr. Young awoke yesterday morning and tried to rouse Her, he was horrified to find her cold in death. She had died in her sleep without warning.
She ws 55 years of age and a former member of the First Presbyterian church here. She had been living in Cairo several years and has many friends both here and there. She was a member of the Knights and Ladies lodge of Cairo. The body will arrive here at 7:30 o'clock this evening, accompanied by her husband. The funeral will be held Wednesday and burial will be in Oak Grove cemetery. She is survived by no children.
The body of Mrs. Charles Young, who died at Cairo, will be brought to the home of her sister, Mrs. Joseph Wagner, 820 South Sixth street, tonight at 8 o'clock. Another sister is Mrs. W.S. Broadfoot.
