Mrs. Elizabeth A. Root, widow of William Root, and of the most widely known women of Shelbyville, died at 12:45 o'clock this afternoon at her home, 610 Shelby Street. She had been in declining health for several months and her condition recently had become quite serious, although her death comes as a great shock to hundreds of friends in the community. At the time of death, Mrs. Root was sixty years, three months and thirteen days old. She was born in west Ontario, Canada, Feb. 15, 1863 and her early life was spent in that province. Mr. and Mrs. Root moved to Shelbyville about fifteen years ago and became among the best known residents of the city. Mrs. root had never fully recovered from grieving over the death of her husband six years ago. She had mingled socially in the city but most of her interest were devoted to welfare work and in caring for young women whose opportunities were few. She was a beloved woman and her memory will always be close to those who knew her. She was a member of the Espiscopal Church at Grand Rapids, Mich., where the family lived before locating here. Mrs. Root was always affiliated with the Eastern Star Lodge in this city. Surviving is one daughter, Miss Ruth Root, at home and one sister, Mrs. Owen Stephenson, of Grand Rapids, Mich. Funeral services will be conducted at three o'clock Monday afternoon, June 1, at the late home on Shelby Street. Burial will be in the Forest Hill Cemetery, in charge of Charles M. Ewing, undertaker.
