Mrs. V. AURIT
Mrs. V. Aurit passed away at her home in this city Friday at 6 p.m., after an illness of over two years, her death being caused by cancer. Two years ago last August Mrs. Aurit first became aware of the danger that threatened her. Medical assistance was sought at once, and two or three operations were performed during her sickness which relieved her for a short time only. She hardly saw a well day from the time she was first taken sick. She was a great sufferer most of the time, but bore it patiently. Everything that medical skill could do for her was done, but she gradually became worse until the final summons came.
The subject of this sketch was born at New Diggins, Wis., January 10, 1847, and was at the time of her death seventy-two years, three months and fifteen days old. She was married March 31, 1869, to V. Aurit. To. this union were born eleven children all of whom are living and were all here to attend their mother's funeral except Mrs. John Schemmer who was unable to come. The children are Henry of Iona, Minn., John, New Diggins, Wis, Joe, Inwood, Jerry, Chris, Ben, and Cleve and Mrs. Cora McElroy, Mrs. Elsie Stengel, Miss Marie of Rock Valley, and Mrs. Kate Schemmer of Kansas City, Mo.
With her husband and children Mrs. Aurit came to this county in the spring of 1877, They settled on a farm east of Rock Valley where they lived over thirty-three years. On account of his wife's failing health Mr. Aurit sold the farm and moved to town last fall.
Funeral services were held from St. Mary's church Tuesday forenoon conducted by Rev. Father O'Reilly. The services were largely attended. The bereaved family have the sincere sympathy of many friends.
