PECK—At the Presbyterian Hospital, Chicago, Ill., July 15, 1892, Mrs. Alma Peck, wife of Anson Peck of Cresco, Iowa, aged 38 years.
Mrs. Peck, maiden name Alma Archer, was born at Fairfield Iowa, March 4, 1854. She was married to Mr. Anson Peck at Waverly, Iowa, Sept. 15, 1875. Mr. and Mrs. Peck have lived at Albert Lea, Minn., and Waverly, coming from the latter place to Cresco, a few months ago, when Mr. P. assumed the management of the Cresco butter tub factory. They had no children and Mrs. Peck’s parents died several years ago.
Mrs. Peck was taken sick a few weeks ago while boarding at the Strother house, and was then removed to Mrs. Louisa Miles’ quiet house where in spite of the best of care and medical attention her malady grew worse and she weaker. As a last resort she was taken, on the 11th inst., to the Presbyterian hospital, Chicago, for special treatment. On Friday, 15th inst., a surgical operation was performed on her and a tumor removed. She was conscious after the operation, but did not rally from the shock, and died six hours afterward.
Her husband and her step-brother, Dr. A. J. Cole of Britt, Iowa, were with her when she died. They took her body to Waverly, her old home, for burial.
Mrs. Peck was a most estimable woman, and her sickness and suffering had touched the hearts of our people. The mourning husband has the sincerest sympathy of all in his sad affliction and bereavement.
Transcriber's Note: Cemetery search revealed she is buried in Harlington Cemetery.
