Mrs. Jesse Cassel, Typhoid Fever Victim, Died Saturday at Her Home in Bardolph

All Astoria and community was saddened Saturday when it became known that Mrs. Ina Cassel, wife of Jesse Cassel, had died at her home in Bardolph, where she had resided since last March. Death was due to typhoid fever from which she had been a sufferer for only fifteen days.

The remains were brought to this city Monday afternoon at 1:15 o'clock, over-land in an automobile hearse.

Since the day she was taken sick nothing in medical skill or otherwise was spared to stay the progress of the fatal disease. At about seven o'clock Saturday morning while tender hands were ministering to her wants, life departed, thus relieving her of her sufferings.

The close of every life is a tragedy and doubly so when the one “gone before” is young and surrounded by all that makes life sweet.

Mrs. Cassel was the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Painter of near Sheldons Grove. She was aged 20 years and 9 months. Besides her grief-stricken husband and parents, she leaves a little babe, Nedra, aged nine months, two sisters, Misses Eva and Naomi, to mourn her early departure.

Mrs. Cassel was born near Sheldons Grove, Dec. 30, 1895. She was married to Jesse Cassel of Astoria Feb. 5, 1914.

Mrs. Cassel was of a kind and loving disposition. She won the respect and the confidence of every one with whom she came in contact and thru-out this neighborhood and in Bardolph where she had made many warm friends, there is a pall of gloom today because of her untimely death. The sympathy of the community goes out to the bereaved family.

There were a number of friends of the deceased from Bardolph in attendance at the funeral. The floral offerings were many and most beautiful.

The funeral services were held at the M. E. church in this city Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. W. J. Perry, pastor of the Methodist church at Bardolph, assisted by Rev. J. O. Lehman of this city, after which the remains were laid to rest in the Astoria cemetery.
