Mrs. Ada Almond of Sheridan, a sister of Mr. John W. Burns of Calhoun, died here Monday evening after a three weeks illness with appendicitis. Mrs. Almond came to Eagle Lake ill three weeks ago and was confined to her room at the Eagle Lake Hotel some time, later being moved to the Fitzgerald Sanitarium.
She was forty years old, and a woman of charming personality and many admirable traits of character. She was very poplar with all who knew her and was held in the highest esteem wherever she was known. She is survived by her husband, and three little girls, who are making their home with the family of their uncle at Calhoun since their mother's death, her father, Mr. Theo. Burns; her brother, Mr. J. W. Burns; her sister, Mrs. W. C. Terrel.
The funeral was held at three o'clock Tuesday afternoon, interment being made in the Lakeside Cemetery, Rev. Mr. Baine of Rock Island, conducting the funeral services.
The Headlight joins the people of Eagle Lake and community in extending its sincerest sympathy to the sorrowing relatives.
