Death came suddenly at 8:00 o'clock Saturday evening, following a coronary attack six minutes earlier, to Mrs. Hattie D. BARLOW, 75, prominent church, lodge and community leader in the Argos vicinity for many years. Mrs. Barlow appeared in usual health until the fatal attack.
She was born Jan. 6, 1877, at Fort Wayne, the daughter of John and Frances WITWER, and was united in marriage in Chicago with Isaac BARLOW on August 10, 1916.
An ardent worker, she was very active in a number of religious, fraternal and community activities over the years. She was a devout member of the Argos Christian church and was presently serving as president of the Philathae class in the church school as vice-president of the Ladies' circle.
Other activities included a long and busy affiliation with the Maxinkuckee lodge, No. 844, IOOF, where she served three terms as Past Noble Grand. She served also five years as president of the Ladies' Auxiliary of the Izaak Walton League, and during those active years made a legion of fast friends who were shocked by the sudden announcement of her demise.
Survivors include the husband, Argos; a sister, Mrs. Pearl VOLLMANN, Chicago; and one nephew, John BELL, Winnetka, Illinois.
The body will rest at the Grossman funeral home in Argos until noon Tuesday when removal will be made to the Argos Christian church, where it will lie in state until the funeral hour at 2 p.m. The Rev. J. Robert COOVERT, church pastor, will be in charge with Maxinkuckee lodge conferring the degree service. Burial will be in Maple Grove at Argos.
