DEATH BRINGS RELIEF TO GOLDEN CITY WOMAN
Mrs. Harry Hurrel Had Been in Poor Health for Months.
Her Last Days Were Full of Suffering. Funeral and Burial Monday, Sept. 3, 1934.
Death brought relief to Mrs. Harry Hurrel of this city on September 2, 1934. Mrs. Hurrel had been suffering intensely for several weeks. She developed a cancer on one her breasts and about a year ago it was decided to have her examined by specialists. She was taken to specialists in Carthage and Joplin, who pronounced her case as incurable inasmuch as it had gone so far that medical science could do nothing to effect a permanent cure. Later her husband in an effort to prolong her life took her to cancer specialists at Savannah, Mo. Her condition was such that they would not attempt to take her case.
Still later she was taken to Springfield were an operation was performed. For a short time it seemed as if it would be successful, but not for long. Her system was permeated with the germs of the dread disease and it was not long until it spread. During the last days of her life she suffered greatly, but bore her suffering with true Christian fortitude. Her husband and her mother cared for her tenderly, but their heroic effects to prolong her life were of no avail.
