MRS. CHARLES HARRIS
Mrs. Charles Harris died at her home on South Argyle Street Saturday, following a stroke which she suffered a few days before. The funeral services were held on Monday, conducted by Rev. A. A. Walburn,
and interment was made in the Hamburg Cemetery.
Mattie A Reeder was born in Hamburg, September 21, 1866, and died at her home Saturday, February 7, 1920, aged 53 years, 4 months and 16 days. She was united in marriage to Charles M Harris at
Sidney, Iowa, November 2, 1883. To this union five children were born, one dying in infancy. Those living are Mrs. Arthur Smith and Theodore Harris of Fort Collins, Colorado; Mrs. Glen McNall
of Langdon; and Myron Harris of Hamburg, all of whom were at her bedside when the end came.
Mrs. Harris was a woman of pleasing personality, a good wife and a loving mother. As a neighbor she was always ready to render assistance and say a cheerful word, and was liked by all who knew
her. A host of friends mourn with the husband and children in the departure of this noble woman.
