From Story County Watchman December 31, 1886
On Friday night last about 1:30 Mr. and Mrs. Hurd, of Cedar Falls, arrived on the train from the east, for the purpose of spending Christmas with Mrs. Abbott, a sister of Mrs. H. They went to the residence at once of Mrs. A., and shortly after retired for the balance of the night. About half past two Mrs. Hurd was taken with a severe fit of coughing which was followed by congestion of the lungs. Prompt attention was given but without avail, and at 3:40 she passed away to that country beyond the unknown sea. The remains were at once taken to Cedar falls for interment.--The age of Mrs. Ruth Ann Hurd was 43 years. This was a sudden and sad ending of what was expected to have been a fine visit between the families of the two sisters, but the ways of the All wise are beyond the knowledge of mankind and all have to bow in submission to His will. The sympathy of all are extended to the stricken ones in their hour of bereavement.
