Quietly and apparently without a struggle, Mrs. Isaac spicher, a well known woman of Shellsburg, was called to the great beyond last night. The lifeless body was found early this morning by the aged husband. She had retired last night apparently in good health and made no complant during the night of not feeling well. The husband heard no struggle. The body was cold and death had taken place several hours before the discovery was made.

Mrs. Spicher was the mother of Mrs. Geo. Hanover and Mrs. Fred Furry of this city and word of the mothers death was telephoned them early this morning. They were taken to Shellsburg by auto. Mr. spicher has been in very poor health all summer and the children were fearful that the shock of the wife's death might prove fatal to him.

No arrangements have been made for the funeral at this time. There are six children surviving, three sons and three daughters. The daughters are Mrs. Hanover and Mrs. Furry of this city and Mrs. Hill of Des Moines. The sons are Elmer of Mt. Auburn and Edward, and Bert of Cedar Rapids.

Mrs. Spicher was a good woman devoted to her home and children. Her death is sincerely mourned by her family and by her many friends.
