Other relatives who were present were Mr. Ralston of Conrad, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Bowers of Liscomb and Cornelius Bowers of Liscomb. Funeral services were in charge of Rev. G. W. McMichael. Burial was made in the Oakland cemetery beside her husband, who died eleven years ago. Pallbearers were Herman Bein, E. G. Elliot, Rudolph Untiedt, and D. B. Simms.
Mrs. Wells had been suffering from high blood pressure for some time and her death was caused by apoplexy. She died at her home in Minneapolis.
