Young Wife And Mother Died Near Summum Sunday

Mrs. Earldon Gorsuch died at her home south of Summum, Sunday, aged 64 years, 4 months and 10 days.

Ethel Amy, daughter of Isaac and Charlcie Hendee, was born Jan. 28, 1895. She was united in marriage to Earldon Gorsuch Feb. 16, 1911, and to this union four children were born: Beulah Lena, Lenord Justus, Fernie and Earldon Jr.

Mrs. Gorsuch has been a sufferer for over two years, but she bore it with Christian patience. At the age of 14 she was converted, baptised and united with the Christian church at Ipava. She was a woman of prayer and faith, bringing her children up and teaching them to pray at her bedside, expressing the hope that they may go right after she left them.

She leaves to mourn her departure the sorrow-stricken husband, the above named children, the father, Isaac Hendee of Kerton township, four brothers, Lenord, Leslie, Howard and Lee Hendee also of Kerton township, four sisters, Mrs. Millie Boggs and Mrs. Mabel Boggs, both of Havana, Hazel Hendee at home and Martha Hendee of Havana, and a host of other relatives and friends.

Her mother and twin sisters preceded her in death several years ago.

Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m., at the U. B. church, conducted by the pastor, Rev. W. R. Seitzinger. Interment in Astoria cemetery.
