Word has been received here by Mrs. Kate Roby of North Seventh street, today telling of the death of her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Oliver Fossett. Mrs. Fossett's death occurred at her home at 730 Cherry Street, Hammond, Indiana.

She had been ill for some time but it was not thought that she was in an immediately critical condition. Mr. Fossett had written to his mother here telling of his wife's illness and saying that an effort was being made to admit her to sanitarium treatment. Then followed the news today of her sudden death.

Mrs. Fossett was formerly Ruth Hart of Centerville. She united in marriage with Oliver Fossett as a young girl and 20 years ago had moved with her husband to Hammond. She is known to many here and news of her death comes as a shock and sorrow.
