Mrs. Howard Reed Dies Unexpectedly
Mrs. Howard (Mary) Reed, 56, nurse’s aide at Holy Family Hospital for the past several years, died suddenly in her sleep early yesterday morning after having been admitted as a patient to the hospital Thursday evening.

She rested at home until Thursday evening when friends took her to the hospital.

Mary Turner was born July 4, 1904 in El Paso, Ill., the daughter of Jobe and Elizabeth Turner. She received her education in the El Paso schools and attended the Estherville High School after moving to Emmet County.

Mrs. Reed was a member of the Estherville Christian Church. She also was a member of the Pythian Sisters lodge. For the past several years she had worked as a nurse’s aide at Holy Family Hospital, much of that time spent on the third (surgical) floor.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother.
