Popular, Young Matron Passes Away in That City From What is Believed to Have Been Typhoid.

Mr. and Mrs. A. Spitler received a message announcing the death of their niece, Mrs. L. Y. Sherman, who passed away at her home in Springfield at 12:30 o'clock this afternoon.  It is supposed that death was due to an attack of typhoid fever, although the message did not so state.

The funeral services will be held in Montrose, near Effingham, on Thursday afternoon, and the rites will be attended by Mr. and Mrs. Spitler and their three daughters, Misses Olive, Merle and Leah.

The deceased before her marriage two years ago last November to Mr. Sherman was Miss Stella Spitler of Montrose, a daughter of Mrs. Mary Spitler.  Upon her marriage she went to Springfield to make her home.  One child, Mary Virginia, sixteen months old, and the husband survive, together with the mother and one sister and one brother, Miss Cora Spitler and Clyde Spitler of Montrose.

Mrs. Sherman, as Miss Spitler, often had visited at the Spitler home in this city, and she numbered among her acquaintances a large number of the young people of the city.
