Obituary ~ Elizabeth Cherrington
1817 ~ 1897
Decatur County Journal
Leon, Decatur County, Iowa
December 23, 1897
MRS. ELIZABETH CHERRINGTON died very suddenly Sunday morning at the residence of her daughter, MRS. G.W. MORRIS. She arose as usual in the morning, but complained of a chilly sensation and her back hurting her. Her daughter, by using some simple remedies, relieved her and she, lying down, went to sleep, from which she never awakened. A physician was called and everything was done that could be done, but to no purpose. She was about 80 years of age.
Her funeral took place Tuesday afternoon from the M.E. Church.
[Interment was made at Garden Grove Cemetery, Garden Grove, Iowa.]
