There was great sorrow in the neighborhood of South Stockbridge when it became known that Mrs. Frank Ludwig, Sr., had died, suddenly at her home on Monday evening at ten o'clock. Mrs. Ludwig was in her usual good health on that day and accompanied her neighbor, Mrs. John Schommer, to the village of Stockbridge where they picked strawberries. She returned home about seven o'clock in the evening and being fatigued from the trip and heat she retired at nine o'clock. Shortly after she felt distressed and unable to breathe without effort, where upon she arose and went out on the porch thinking the fresh air might relieve her, but instead of bettering her condition she seemed to grown worse and suddenly passed away. For several years she has been more or less trouble with an internal goiter which possibly had something to do with her untimely death. Her family was with her at the time of her passing and did everything in their power to revive her but to no avail, the spark of life had fled.
