The deceased was about eighty-four years of age, and was one of the early residents of Galena. Her husband was in the grocery business in Galena for a number of years, and will be remembered by many of the older residents of the city. Besides her son Ernest, at whose home she died, Mrs. Sanders is survived by a son, Henry, of this city, a daughter, Mrs. Al. Hansing of Menominee. A daughter, Mrs. Fairweather, died about two years since. The remains will arrive in Galena on the afternoon Central train on Thursday and will be taken to St. Matthews Lutheran church from whence funeral services will be held. Rev. John Klindworth officiating. Interment will be made in Greenwood cemetery.
