Description of her death: "Grandma was enjoying fairly good health the morning she passed away. She arose and went outside
before the others had gotten up. She went back into the house and to the kitchen stove, moving a lid or two. Uncle Dee called
to her, 'Never mind mother, I will make the fire.' She went back to bed and sat on the edge. In a while she called to Uncle
Dee and Aunt Ada, who came to her side. They tried to lay her down in bed but to their amazement she was stiff and cold. They
couldn't do much with her and in a few minutes she drew her last earthly breath in their arms."
