Sad Death of Mrs. E.M. Ritter
Mrs. Louise Ritter, wife of Mr. E.M. Ritter passed away at a hospital in Greybull on Sunday last following an operation for cancer. She had been ill for some time, but many friends did not realize the seriousness of her ailment and the news of her death came as a shock to them.
Louise Rockwell was born in Illinois, and at the time of her death was 43 years of age. In 1903 she was married to Mr. E.M. Ritter of Boulder, Colo. They came to Basin about eight years ago and located on the land where they have since made their home. They have been good neighbors, thrifty people and such people as one likes to have in any community.
The husband, who is left to mourn her loss, has five little children to share his grief, and with them three brothers, six sisters and a mother will mourn her untimely death.
Funeral services were held at the Baptist church on Monday afternoon, conducted by Rev. C. Wardlaw, and the remains were laid to rest in Mount View cemetery.
