Well Known Union Township Resident Dies After Long Illness

Mrs GH Burrill, of Union township, died on Wednesday morning at the home of her parents, Mr and Mrs Tullis, in Merrill. Mrs Burrill had been sick for the past five years and had suffered much. Several times she has been at the point of death during her long illness and her life despaired of. During the time that she had been in ill health she had been faithfully and tenderly nursed by her loving husband and children who had spared no pains nor labor to make her remaining years as happy and peaceful as possible. The best of medical aid had been secured to no avail.

Six weeks ago she was brought to the hospital in this city and was given the most skillful treatment, but her already frail body was fast beginning to sink, and it was finally known that she had but a short time in which to be upon this earth. She was then taken to the home of her parents, Mr and Mrs William Tullis, where she might spend the last few days with those who had reared her from infancy. Although the long months had been fraught with pain and suffering, the deceased had tried to make the lives of those about her as happy as possible and had always tried to lighten the burdens of those who were taking care of her.

Mary Burrill was married to GH Burrill, in this county, on April 28th 1889. She had resided in this county since 1882, during which time she had made many friends by her gentleness and willingness to help others.

Besides her husband she is survived by six children, all of who are girls. They are Pearl, Eva, Florence, Fay, Martha and Clara. Three sisters and two brothers and her parents are also alive. Her brothers and sisters are: Wm Tullis, who resides on a claim in South Dakota; Mrs. John Eberhardt, residing at Wessington Springs; Mrs Insinger, of Walnut, Kansas; and Frank Tullis, who resides in Plymouth township.

The funeral will be held at Merrill this afternoon from the Methodist church at two o'clock. Interment will take place in the Merrill cemetery by the body of a brother, who died last fall from injuries received from burns.
