On her death record and in cemetery records her name is Julia Lowell. In the newspaper it was Julia Messer. I went with Lowell on the memorial.

Info comes from actual vital records. Death and/or birth and/or marriage records. The info is only as accurate as the person giving the information at the time.

from the Rutland Daily Herald, May 17, 1923:
On May 4th Mrs. Julia Messer, 76, of South Main street, spilled the contents of a pot of steaming hot coffee on to her right leg, burning the limb badly from the knee down.
For a week she received treatment at her home but last Friday it was though advisable to take her to the hospital. She died there yesterday as a direct result of her burns.
Mrs. Messer is survived by one son, Nelson Washburn of Rutland town. She lived alone on South Main street. Mrs. Messer underwent a serious operation at the hospital two years ago from which she never fully recovered.
She was born in Rochester but had lived seven years in this city.
[Note: Her name is spelled as "Nesser" throughout obituary, I corrected the spelling above]
