Mrs. S. R. Henry Passes Away at Home of Nephew

Succumbs to Pneumonia Attack After Two Weeks of Illness

The Grim Reaper entered our community Tuesday, March 29th and called home another of our well beloved old-timers, Mrs. Sarah H. Henry.

Mrs. Henry had been in failing health since last July. About two weeks ago she contracted pneumonia and in her weakened condition she was unable to survive. Death came to her at the home of her nephew, W. M. Bonsell.

Sarah R. Henry was born in Pittsburgh, Penn., December 12, 1843. The early part of her life was spent in Pittsburgh. From there she removed to New York City where she lived until 1893 when she came to Lusk to make her home with her nephews, James S. and Wm. H. Bonsell on the OW ranch north of this city.

She united with the local Congregational church a number of years ago. She also affiliated with Lusk Rebekah Lodge No. 12 and retained her membership at the time of her passing.

Services will be held Friday afternoon at the Community church at 2:30 o'clock.

The Universal Funeral parlors have charge of funeral arrangements. Interment will be made in the Lusk cemetery.
