"SUDDEN DEATH AT AN EARLY HOUR THIS MORNING OF MRS. CLEMENTINE CUNNINGHAM BRICE, HEART DISEASE BEING THE CAUSE OF HER TAKING OFF. WAS ONE OF LIMA'S
OLDEST RESIDENTS BEING THE SECOND BABY BORN IN THIS CITY.
Leaves but two children, Mrs. O. B. Selfridge and City Engineer John Brice – Funeral Saturday afternoon at One O'clock. From the Residence.
Mrs. Clementine Cunningham Brice, stepmother of the late Senator Calvin S. Brice, and mother of City Engineer John Brice and Mrs. O. B. Selfridge, died suddenly this morning about 2:30 o'clock of heart trouble, from which she had
suffered several attacks during the last year.
Deceased is the daughter of Dr. William Cunningham, one of the pioneer families of Lima and lived at the old homestead, corner of Elizabeth and Elm streets. She was born September 15th, 1832, and was the second baby
born in Lima, and Allen County for that matter. She spent her girlhood days in Lima and in February, 1853, married W. K. Brice. For the next seventeen years she lived with her husband at Columbus Grove, he officiating as pastor
of the Presbyterian church at that place. Two years after his death, which occurred in 1870, she returned to this city and has resided here ever since, living at 714 west Market Street.
Mrs. Brice was prominently identified with church and mission work during her active years. She was a sister of the late Doan Cunningham and the only remaining one of her generation is Mrs. Josiah Williams, whose place of
residence is on south Main street.
The funeral will be held Saturday afternoon at one o'clock from the late residence on west Market street, and the funeral services will be preached by an eminent Presbyterian Divine, Dr. Samuel Palmer, pastor of the Broad Street Church in Columbus. He was a Sunday school pupil of Mrs. Brice at Columbus Grove and was baptized by Rev. Brice. The burial will be in Woodlawn cemetery."
