Mrs. Amos Show Dead
Mrs. Amos Show, born Christiana Tjaden, daughter of Mrs. T. Tjaden of Wellsburg, died at her home in Morrison Monday about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, after a lingering illness. The cause of death was believed to be cancer.
Mrs. Show was about 42 years of age and leaves a family of 8 children, one of the daughters being married. She was born in Germany and came to Grundy county when young, living in this county ever since, while at home and after her marriage.
The funeral will be held at Morrison on Friday at 1 o'clock and the body will be brought to Wellsburg for interment in the cemetery here.
Mrs. Show was a great sufferer in the later months of her sickness and her death comes as a release from intense pain, which was relieved as far as possible by the use of anesthetics.
The deceased was well known hereabouts and the family and relatives have the deep sympathy of all in their loss.
