The host of friends of that pioneer citizen, W. M. Blitch, will be deeply pained to learn of the death of his life-long companion. Mrs. Blitch was stricken with influenza and pneumonia followed, resulting in her death, which occurred at her home in Santa Fe Monday morning at 9 o'clock. The funeral will occur Wednesday at 9 a.m. and the burial will be in the family graveyard at New Hope.
Mrs. Blitch was the oldest daughter of Eli Futch, deceased. Besides her husband, she leaves a son, Edward, at Santa Fe, and two daughters, Mrs. Johnson, at Hawthorn and Mrs. Roberts, at LaCrosse; also grandchildren, children of Mrs. Joseph Rivers, deceased, in Gainesville, and three brothers in this county, J.
