At 10:30 oíclock on Thursday night, May 14, 1914, Mrs. Elizabeth Bartlett, wife of Edward L. Bartlett, died at the family home, 306 Washington Street.Though Mrs. Bartlett had been in poor health several months, her death came rather unexpectedly, the final cause being heart failure.Deceased was born in Fond du Lac, March 26, 1862, her maiden name being Miss Elizabeth Clough.She was married in 1886 to Mr. Bartlett, and the family came to this city from Fond du Lac fifteen years ago and ever since resided here.Mrs. Bartlett was a prominent member of Watertown Chapter No. 44, Order of the Eastern Star, and also of St. Paulís Episcopal Church.Her husband and one daughter, Miss Corrine Bartlett, survive her.She is also survived by her mother, Mrs. Anne Clough, of Tacoma, Wash.; a sister, Mrs. Chas.

Laurenson, pastor of St. Paulís Church.The interment was in Oak Hill Cemetery.

 

In the death of Mrs. Bartlett this city has lost one of its very best women.She possessed a peculiarly sweet and beautiful character, which endeared her greatly to her friends, all of whom feel the most sincere grief on account of her death.She lived a life of Christian faith, and with faith unshaken, passed away in peace.She was a loving wife and mother, and to the bereaved ones the heartfelt sympathy of the people of Watertown is extended.
