"Mrs. Thomas E. Short, formerly Viola Winenger [sic], daughter of Phillip Winenger [sic] and wife, died Saturday at their home near Toto of cancer of the liver. She had been seriously indisposed only a short time and her death was a great shock to her large circle of friends. Funeral at Round Lake, one of the largest ever seen in that vicinity. Leaves on child, boy, four years old, too young to fully realize his great loss."
