The people of our community were surprised and shocked last Wednesday by news of the death of Mrs. Cooper (nee Miss Erah Parker) the daughter of Lieut. J. F. Parker, which occurred at Villa Ridge that day. Mrs. Cooper had been making her home in this city for the past six months and was taken to her father's home at Villa Ridge only a few days before her death. She leaves an infant child. Mrs. Cooper was very well known by a large number of our people and stood high in their estimation. She was for many years a prominent teacher in the schools of our county. She was married about a year ago, but her matrimonial venture was not a pleasant or profitable one, Her husband deserting her under such circumstances as to bring upon himself the odium of all who knew the circumstances. The remains were interred in the Villa Ridge Cemetery Thursday afternoon.
