Gallia Native Dies In Iowa City

Mrs. Dora Blessing, wife of Morgan T. Blessing and native of Gallia county, died Sunday at her home in Rolfe, Iowa, which had been their home for many years. The message containing the news of her death came to her niece, Mrs. W.W. Sigler, who with Mr. Sigler and another niece, Mrs. H.W. McHenry, left Monday to attend the last rites.

Relatives here had known of Mrs. Blessing's illness of a heart condition for which she had been treated at the Mayo clinic at Rochester, Minn., but the news of her passing came as a great shock, never the less.

She was the daughter of the late Ansel Northup and of her family there survives three sisters, Mrs. Jacob Baker of Northup, Mrs. Mary Pickens of Springfield, Ill., and Mrs. F.C. Smith of Los Angeles. She and Mr. Blessing had no children.
