Bright Seven Year Old Daughter of Ex-Governor Is No More

Little Elizabeth Hunt, daughter of ex-Governor and Mrs. Frank. W. Hunt, died yesterday at 1:30 o'clock of spinal meningitis. She was born in Boise, September 15, 1897.

She was taken ill the early part of last week and remained unconscious from Thursday evening until the time of her death.

The funeral will be from the family residence on Warm Springs avenue Monday at 2 o'clock.

Little Elizabeth was a precocious child, and a most beautiful character. For one so young, she was unusually conscientious and patient. She was always kind and obedient. She never failed to give her whole attention and energy to every duty. Her short school life endeared her to her mates and teacher and she was always loving and painstaking with every task assigned her.

She was both the music and sunshine of her home. The harmony is ended. The sun has set. Her many friends sorrow with her loved ones.

Gravesite Details Father's published biography has her death year as 1907. That is not correct. Her death notice appears in the newspaper in 1905.
