"Mrs. Lindsley Dies Suddenly At Home Here

Mrs. William R. Lindsley, early local resident, although ailing for some time was able to be up and around the house, died suddenly of old age complications about 5:30 o'clock Friday afternoon, less than a day before her 84th birthday anniversary. She was born Nov. 2, 1851, at Hamilton, Ontario, a daughter of Paul and Margaret Schaeffer, and came to this country as a child with her parents to live at Beaver Dam where 66 years ago next December 29, she was married to Mr. Lindsley. Her maiden name was Elizabeth Schaeffer.

Mr. and Mrs. Lindsley came to Sturgeon Bay about 1870 and in 1872 built the home which they occupied until the present on Sherman street. The former was a carpenter by trade.

Besides the husband, who is the last surviving charter member of the local post of the G. A. R., Mrs. Lindsley leaves two sons, Chester of Long Beach, Cal., and Sidney of Fort Dodge, Ia.; one daughter, Mrs. William (Edith) Pieper, Davenport, Ia.; one sister, Mrs. Julia Wright of Landsdown, Pa., and five grandchildren.

The funeral was held Monday afternoon from the home with the Rev. T. H. Runyon officiating. Pallbearers were Walt Kimber, Paul Lavassor, C. W. Sanderson, H. J. Sanderson, Edward Squire and C. P. Bassett. Interment was at Bayside.

Those from outside attending were Mrs. William Pieper and daughter Katheryn of Davenport and Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Lindsley and son Sidney of Fort Dodge. Mr. Lindsley, now 93, will make his home with the latter."
