Omaha Daily Bee, September 2, 1909:

Council Bluffs News - Dr. Ruth Barstow, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. J. M. Barstow, died suddenly of heart failure Wednesday morning, at her home, 221 south Sixth street.

Miss Barstow had been in ill health for some time, but her sudden demise was a great surprise to her family and friends. Wednesday morning she was engaged with some sewing on a birthday present for her father. She suddenly became faint and said "Mamma, I'm very sick." Before her mother could reach her side to give her assistance, life was extinct.

Miss Barstow was 23 years of age. She graduated from the Council Bluffs High school in 1908 and took a course in the Creighton Medical college in Omaha, receiving her diploma in the class of 1909.

She was taken with heart trouble during her last week of school and was confined to her bed for three months, but had recently shown great improvement and her ultimate recovery was anticipated.

The funeral will be held at 10 o'clock Friday morning from the residence, the Rev. John Williams of St. Barnabas' church, Omaha, officiating.
