Funeral of Mrs. Hutchins of Latham.
A large concourse of sorrowful people gathered at the darkened home of Bert Hutchins, near Latham Park yesterday to do the last rites to one who had been the light and joy of the home. The faithful wife and loving mother of four little daughters. Clearly Mrs. Hutchins was the favorie of the entire community, and freely did tears flow - and indeed was the parting.
Mrs. Hutchins was the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dudley Lyford of Roscoe and sister of Mrs. Dr. Rhodes of this city. This death was the break in the grown up family of seven children. That the parents and husband have the sympathy of all, was evidenced by the very unusual offering of flowers and assistance.
The decoration at the grave by the skillful hand of Mesdames Taft, Atwood, McDowell, Curtis, and other ladies, and were beautiful and unique, especially the large pillow covering the grave box with name "Nellie" in large floral letters. Reluctantly the friends retired leaving the loved form carrying with them however sweet remembrances of her beautiful lise.
