Death of Mrs. Christoper; Highly respected lady passes away from effect of paralysis. Mrs. Mary J. Christopher, died at the family home about five miles west of Adams, yesterday at 4 o'clock, after a long illness. Mrs. Christopher had been afflicted with paralysis for over eight years, and was in a weakened condition physically, so that when a short time ago she contracted a severe cold which resulted in pneumonia, she was unable to withstand the ravages of the disease and death came quickly to end her suffering.

The deceased was 68 years of age at the time of her death and had lived in this county for over 26 years. She was the wife of Peter Christopher, and was a Finn by birth, coming to Michigan 35 years ago. She was the mother of 12 children, six of whom are now living. She was a devout member of the Lutheran Church and the funeral will be at the residence, under the direction of the pastor of the Lutheran church. The interment will be in the Greasewood Cemetery, near Adams. The funeral will be held on the arrival of a daughter from Seattle.
