Mrs. Hooper, widow of Henry Hooper died at her home in Livermore on Friday, Oct. 19, 1900, of inflammation of the bowels, aged 63 years. Mrs. Hooper’s maiden name was Mary Jane Mitchell. She was born in Cornwall, England, in 1837, and was married to Henry Hooper on March 12th, 1858, in Cornwall, England. That same year she removed with her husband to America, locating at Mineral Point, Wis. In 1870 they removed to Grundy county, Iowa, and in 1884 to Humboldt county, managing a farm southeast of Livermore till 1890, since which time she has resided in Livermore. Her husband died on Jan. 9, 1899.
There were born to Mr. and Mrs. Hooper four children,--three girls and one boy, as follows: Louise (Mrs. Houck) now in Lyon county; John H., whose home is in Ottosen; Jessie (deceased); and Mary J., (Mrs. Ed Spafford) in Chicago.
Mrs. Houck and J. H. Hooper were notified of their mother’s sickness in time to arrive before her death. Mrs. Spafford arrived from Chicago on Saturday morning. Aside from these there were in attendance at the funeral from abroad J. H. Hooper’s brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Editor Parkin and Mrs. A. J. Struthers, both of West Bend. Also Mr. Hundertmark and Will Worster of Wacousta. Mrs. Hooper’s sickness was of only a week’s duration.
