Denver was startled Friday morning when the news was spread that Mrs Jerry Burkholder had passed away at her home in South Denver during the early hours of the morning. Mrs Burkholder has been in failing health for a number of years but was up and about the house and assisted with the lighter household duties. Her condition was not considered alarming, and her death coming as it did, was a shock to the family and friends.
On Thursday evening she was feeling unusually well for her and spent the evening with her family seemingly in the best of spirits and health. At bed time she retired as usual and slept all night. In the morning her daughter, Esther, who was sleeping with her, was aroused from sleep by the heavy breathing of her mother. She at once called her father who had gotten up just a little while before and was at the barn doing his morning work. When Mr Burkholder reached the house the other daughter, Mable and a son-in-law, Calvin Stump, of Syracuse, who had spent the night with them, had carried Mrs Burkholder down stairs but life was extinct before anything could be done.
It is thought that heart failure was the cause of her death. This loving mother will be sadly missed, especially in the home when she was always doing what she could to make her family and those about her happy and comfortable.
The funeral services were conducted by Rev Melton at the Baptist Church Sunday afternoon at two o'clock and interment in the Mt Zion cemetery northwest of Denver.
