LOCAL WOMAN DIES SUDDENLY - MRS. W. E. ALVEY FOUND DEAD IN BED AT HER RESIDENCE WEDNESDAY MORNING.
MRS. IDA MATTINGLY ALVEY, 56, widow of W. E. Alvey, was found dead in bed at her residence on the St. Rose Pike a short distance from town Wednesday morning at 5:45 o'clock. Although a physician had attended her the preceding evening, her condition was not considered critical and her passing came as a severe shock to members of her family and her friends.
She had suffered with a heart ailment and complications for nearly three years and upon the advice of her doctor had spent considerable time in rest. However, she had not been confined to her home until recently when she complained of extreme weakness and inability to sleep. Her daughter, Miss Anna B. Alvey, a switchboard operator at the Southern Continental Telephone Co., stated that her mother was breathing in apparent comfort when she left the home Wednesday morning about 5:30. She was notified of her death when she arrived at the telephone office a few minutes later.
Mrs. Alvey was a daughter of the late Bernard and Anna Flanagan Mattingly and was born on February 7, 1887, in Lebanon where she had spent practically all of her life and where she obtained her education. At St. Charles Church on November 28, 1905, she was united in marriage to Mr. Alvey, who, for many years prior to his death last August, was a farmer and member of the Lebanon Police Force. He also served twelve years as county jailer and with his family moved to Lebanon from the county when first elected in 1922. Surviving Mrs. Alvey are seven daughters and one son. They are Mrs. William A. Blandford of St. Mary, and Mrs. Alex Osborn, Mrs. John B. Hayden, Misses Anna B. Alvey, Agnes Alvey, Ida Alvey and Lyda Alvey, and Joseph William Alvey, all of Lebanon. One daughter died in infancy.
Also surviving are a sister, Mrs. Liburn Flanagan of Evansville, Ind., and three brothers, Bernard and Thomas K. Mattingly of Louisville and Wallace Mattingly of St. Mary.
Mrs. Alvey was a devout member of the Catholic Church and was affiliated with the Christian Mothers and Altar Society, both church organizations. Companionable, kind, generous and thoughtful, she had a wide circle of friends.
Requiem High Mass will be sung at St. Augustine's Church this morning at 9 o'clock, the Rev. Joseph D. Gettlefinger serving as celebrant, and burial will take place in St. Augustine Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Willie B. Buckman, John Cowherd, Ed Blandford, Spalding Mattingly, Paul Spalding and Leon Blandford.
