Mrs. Pierce Dies Wednesday As Result of Flu

As The Herald goes to press at 5:00 o'clock Wednesday evening, word was received of the death of Mrs. P. A. Pierce, who passed away at the Lusk Hospital, following a short illness.

Mrs. Pierce had been suffering for the past two weeks from an attack of the flu and appendicitis, and had recovered sufficiently the first of the week so she was able to sit up. On Tuesday she suffered a relapse and was taken to the hospital where she passed on Wednesday afternoon.

As yet no arrangements for the funeral have been made, but burial will probably be made Friday.

Mrs. Philip H. Pearce

Mrs. Philip H. Pearce passed away at the Lusk Hospital Wednesday, January 16, at the age of 46 years, 11 months and 3 days.

Some three weeks ago, Mrs. Pearce became ill with influenza, but was apparently on the road to recovery when the fore part of last week pneumonia set in. She was then transferred to the hospital, where every effort was made to save her life, but to no avail.

Services were held Sunday afternoon from the Baptist Church with Rev. B. F. Farrar officiating.

Pallbearers were Vern Hulbert, R. I. Olinger, O. P. Harnagel, Glen I. Willson, Guy Knox and Pat Costlow.

Funeral arrangements were made by the Peet Undertaking Parlors and interment made in the Lusk Cemetery.

Sadie A. Osborn was born in Bura County, Illinois, February 13, 1882. When a child of 3 years, she removed with her parents to Calhoun County, Iowa, and from there to Carthage, S. Dak., when she was 16 years old.

On October 24, 1900, she was united in marriage with Philip H. Pearce at Pomroy, Iowa. From there they removed to Cavor, S. D., and in 1913 came to Lusk, where they have since made their home.

In her youth, Mrs. Pearce united with the Free Methodist Church and still retained her membership.

She leaves to mourn her passing, her husband; four daughters Mrs. Roy Pennington of Casper, Mrs. Carl Sorensen of Lusk, and Leitha and Marie of Lusk; three sons, Athel, Taft and Ray, all of Lusk; her mother, Mrs. Rhoda A.
