Mrs. W. H. Foote Passes Away
Death Came After a Serious Operation in a Minneapolis Hospital
A Long Time Resident Here
The Remains Were Brought to This City for Burial Last Thursday

Word of the death of Mrs. W. H. Foote of this city came as a sudden shock to the many friends of the Foote family who reside in this city.

It was known that Mrs. Foote who has been in Minneapolis for the past few months for treatment was seriously ill but it was not thought her condition was critical. About a week ago she was taken to the hospital to undergo an operation. Her physical condition was such she was unable to withstand the strain. For several years Mrs. Foote has not been in the best of health but has been able to be about until a short time ago.

The Foote family have been residents of this city for the past thirty years and have a wide circle of acquaintances. Mrs. Foote has always been an active worker in the Eastern Star and has been a leader in the social world of this city. From this circle she will be greatly missed.

The remains were brought to this city for burial Tuesday afternoon and services will be held Thursday.

The deceased is survived by her husband and three sons, Arthur, Wallace and Claire and one daughter, Mrs. Grace Cain. None of whom reside in this city. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, July 4, 1917)
