Mrs. E. H. Dodd Dies Suddenly New Year's Day
She Had Been In Usual Good Health Until A Few Hours Before Her Death
Acute Indigestion Cause
Follows Her Husband in Death Within the Short Period of Thirteen Weeks
Not in a long time has the community received such a shock as it did on the afternoon of New Year's Day when it became known the Mrs. E. H. Dodd had passed away at her home in this city at about 3:30 that afternoon.
Mrs. Dodd arose in the morning feeling in her usual health, but about ten o'clock she remarked to her daughter, Miss Sue, who was at home with her, that she was not feeling well. Shortly afterwards she fainted and a doctor was called who pronounced her trouble as acute indigestion. Even then it was not thought by members of the family that her condition was serious, but that her illness would soon yield to treatment. Later in the afternoon, however, she showed every symptom of growing worse and the doctor was again called, but she continued to grow weaker and nothing that loving hands and medical skill could do could forestall the inevitable.
What makes the death of Mrs. Dodd doubly sad is the fact that only thirteen weeks ago Sunday (Sept. 26th last) Mr. Dodd passed away after an illness that extended over a period of nearly two years.
Thus within a space of only a few short weeks the children have lost a kind and loving father and mother, and the community two of its most honored and highly respected citizens.
Funeral services will be held from the home this (Thursday) afternoon at 2:30, conducted by their former pastor, Rev. L. P. Krome, of Lisbon, assisted by Rev. H. C. Chambers, of the First Presbyterian church of this city. Interment will be in the family lot in the Grundy Center -unreadable-
