Sudden Death of Mrs. Jas. Doyle

Another home is saddened and many hearts are aching with sorrow by the passing away of a beloved wife and mother. Mrs. James Doyle went to her heavenly home Saturday night at 11:30 after a week of suffering following an operation for appendicitis. Her life was a living example of rare Christian duty and fortitude. Her every action showed loving thoughts of a pure womanhood. She was a model wife and mother. All who knew her mourn her sad demise sincerely and her place on earth can never be tilled in the hearts of her loved ones.

Hattie M. McCulla was born in Howard county, Iowa, February 11, 1863, and died May 1, 1915, aged 52 years, 2 months and 20 days.

She had suffered intensely from appendicitis and was operated on at the Harcourt Hospital Monday, April 26th, but she had waited too long and skilled hands could not save her. She died Saturday at 11:30 p. m. May 1st. The funeral services wore held at the Catholic church at 9:30 on Tuesday morning.

She leaves to mourn her a husband, one daughter, one brother, Fred McCulla, and five sisters, Mrs. Geo. Allen, Mrs. Jack Wilson, Mrs. C. W. Crim, of this city, Mrs. Cook of Albert Lea, and Mrs. Gowdy, of Cresco.
