Death of Mrs. Thompson

Mrs. Rose M. Thompson [Ruth Malinda], wife of Thomas Thompson, died this morning at the residence of the family on Pitkin Avenue.

Mrs. Thompson has been a great sufferer for many years. She has been confined to her home for the past three years and has only been able to move around the house. The deceased was fifty-nine years of age and leaves a husband and a family of several children to mourn her loss.

The remains will be shipped to Farnam, Nebraska, her old home.

Undertaker Gourley prepared the body for shipment.

A telegram was received Saturday conveying the sad intelligence that Mrs. Thos. Thompson had died at her home in Grand Junction, Colo., Monday and that the remains would be sent here for interment. Mrs. Thompson had many friends at this place, having resided here several years ago. Two of her children, Mrs. E. T. Buss and J. W. Thompson, still reside here. Besides these two, she leaves three other children and a husband to mourn her death. It is not known when the remains will arrive, as the trains in Colorado have been snow bound the past week. Mr. Harnsberger, Mrs. Thompson's brother, arrived from Ashland Tuesday evening and will remain until after the burial.
