Last Friday just as the day was
dying Miss Stella McConnell, who has been a constant sufferer for
the last two years, succumbed to death.
Stella was born on the farm now owned by Mr. Frank

last, on May 24, 1872. At time of death she was 41 years, 8 months
and 6 days old. She is survived by a mother, two sisters and
Services were held over her remains at the residence
last Sunday at 12:30 P.M. Rev. John Foster, pastor of the Sherwood
Congregational church had charge of the services and the singing was
taken care of by all male voices. M.E. Buck had charge of the burial
which took place in the Pleasant Hill cemetery shortly after the
ceremonies at the house. The pall bearers were B.H. Tooze,
Chester Tooze, John Owens, O.A. Todd, W. P. Fish and Will Smith.
As far as the writer has heard Stella had no known
enemies, being a friend to everybody and everybody were her friends.
She was kind, gentle hearted, even tempered and always willing to
help those in trouble. The life she lived was a good one to emulate.
The News-Sheet joins in sympathy with the bereaved relatives.
