The death of Mrs. J. E. Evans occurred last Monday at the family residence near Brooks. It will be remembered that this paper stated last week that the lady was very low of heart trouble and dropsy, and no hopes were entertained for her recovery. The death is particularly sad from the fact that the home has been under quarantine for six weeks, for smallpox. Mrs. Evans had the disease in a light form and had recovered from that but in her weakened condition succumbed to an old trouble of long standing. The funeral will be held at a later date, when the family are released from quarantine. A short service was held over the remains Tuesday at 11 o’clock in the yard at the home, and was conducted by Rev. J. Owen Smith of Brooks. Interment was made at the Brooks cemetery. Nora Brown, was born in Illinois, July1st, 1871 and was 40 years and 17 days old. When a young lady she came to Iowa with her parents and was married to J. E. Evans, January 12, 1881, in this city. Six children, four girls and two boys were born to them and are all at home. They are Jessie, Mary, Walter, Bessie, Dora and Johnnie. Mr. Evans and his mother, Mrs. Eliza Evans both have the smallpox, but the lady who is 78 years of age is able to be up most of the time. Miss Jessie who had employment away from home, decided that she was needed by the family so went home to care for the afflicted members.
