Mrs. George Alden
Mrs. Melda Marie Alden, born June 30, 1898, died in the Oil City hospital at 3:30 p.m., April 9. She was the daughter of Oliver A. and Nettie Long, of Kossuth, Pa., and was married to George Alden six years ago. Besides her husband and parents she is survived by three children; Merl and Earl, twins, aged three years, and Dorothy, aged four. Also the following sisters and brothers; Gertrude, Ethel and Charles of Kossuth; and Lloyd, of Van. Mrs. Alden was taken sick on December 23, and had been a continual sufferer ever since. One month ago she was taken to the Oil City hospital and operated on for what proved to be a tumorous growth. For some days her life was despaired of, but recently she made rapid improvement and on April 7 her husband was notified that she was doing finely and would surely recover. On April 9, at 6:30 p.m. her heart weakened and the friends were notified. The husband and the father reached the hospital in time to be recognized and received her last message. She realized that she was dying and expressed her readiness and requested that her mother take her three little children and not separate them. The body was removed to Osenider's undertaking rooms, where it was prepared for burial and then brought to the home of the parents on Sunday.
The funeral services were conducted in the Valley church on Tuesday by the pastor, Rev. Haynes, who used the text, Hebrews 18:14: "For her have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come." The church choir sang "My Jesus, As Thou Wilt." "Does Jesus Care??" and "Shall We Meet Beyond the River?".
The floral tributes were beautiful and numerous. Interment was in the Valley cemetery with the following acting as pall bearers; Burt Fox, Charles Weeter, Arthur Wenner, Clifford Bell, Ray and Kenneth Weaver. The death of this esteemed and beloved young woman has caused widespread grief and deepest sympathy.
