Death: May 29, 1907

Mrs. J.L. Burgess, a young prominent woman of Eagle Lake, is dead of paralysis. She was first stricken with the disease eight years ago and four years ago suffered the second stroke. The third stroke which occurred about a week ago was very serious and finally resulted in her death at noon yesterday.
Mrs. Burgess was a woman of fine character and was loved by a large number of friends. Her death is deeply regretted.
The deceased was born October 8, 1872 in Faribault County and when sixteen years of age moved with her parents to Eagle Lake where she afterward resided continually. Her marriage to Mr. Burgess took place thirteen years ago last March and the union was a very happy one. Mrs. Burgess is survived by her husband, one son, Leon Dean Burgess, aged twelve years, by her father and step-mother, a brother, and a sister. She was a member of the Christian church at Eagle Lake.
