Stricken suddenly in an Indianapolis hospital where she was taken the first of the week for an operation for cancer, Mrs. George W. Akin died at 10 o'clock Wednesday night. She had been in very poor health of late as the result of illness extending over ten years and Monday was taken to Indianapolis by her son, Dr. Raymond Akin where an operation was performed Tuesday by Dr. Noble.

She was a devout member of the Kirkwood Avenue Christian church and a lady of a beautiful Christian life. Her husband and two children, Dr. Raymond and Miss Ida Akin, survive her. The funeral is to be Friday afternoon from the residence at 7th and Dunn street.
The funeral of Mrs. Akin is to be Friday afternoon and it is to be private, only the family and immediate friends to be present. The service will be in charge of Rev. Todd, of the Christian church. In the morning the body will lie in state from 8 until 12 o'clock. Pall bearers: M. Brake, George Walker, James Ridge, Gilbert Ridge, Dr. Bert Thompson and L. D. Faulkner.
