Mrs. George A. Nichols, 78, Dies At Home Here
Heart Attack Fatal at 9:55 Tuesday Morning.

Mrs. George A. Nichols, 79, died at 9:55 a.m. Tuesday [October 31, 1944] following a heart attack suffered shortly after she had wakened from sleep and dressed for the day.

Mrs. Nichols went to Sioux Falls, S.D., several weeks ago to visit her niece, Mrs. William O’Brien, and became ill enroute there. For several days Mrs. Nichols was confined to her bed at the home of her niece and later was taken to a hospital in Sioux Falls. She arrived home Monday evening by train. She insisted she was well enough to come home by train although her daughter, Adelaide, and her doctor both urged her to come by ambulance. She had seemed much improved on her arrival.

Adelaide May Carson was born May 31, 1865, on the Carson homestead at Port Andrew, Richland county, Wis., and attended high school at Boscobel, Wis.

She was married to George A. Nichols Feb. 16, 1885, on the Carson homestead. They moved to the Dakota territory shortly after their marriage, then came to Estherville in 1891 where they lived since. For several years Mr. and Mrs. Allen wintered in Florida. Mr. Nichols died in February, 1940.

Mrs. Nichols was a charter member of the Eastern Star lodge and of the Episcopal church.

Mr. and Mrs. Nichols had three children, Herbert Theodore, Adelaide and Emma. Emma, who was Mrs. William Deming, died in May, 1937.

Mrs. Nichols is survived by Herbert and Adelaide, three grandchildren, Capt. William Deming of Trenton, N.C., Mrs. James Baldwin and Georgia Deming, by one great-grandchildren, a sister, Mrs. Rebecah Holcomb of Mundelein, Ill., and a brother, George Carson of McCrory, Ark.

Funeral services will be held Saturday at 1:30 p.m. from the Mahlum and Sandin funeral chapter and at the Episcopal church at 2 p.m. Burial will be in Oak Hill cemetery. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, November 2, 1944)
