Called to Rest
Mrs. Jennie Brisco passed away at the home of Smith Stearns, Monday afternoon, after an illness of three months duration.
The life of the deceased was one that was filled with more shadows than sunshine, for she was sorely afflicted for a good many years prior to her death. Several years ago she became afflicted with rheumatism and spinal trouble, and from the effects of these diseases she was left a hopeless cripple, unable to walk or to care for herself, and for the past three years she had been deprived of her eyesight. She was taken to different hospitals in the hopes that her condition might be benefited but it was of no avail. For the past few years she had made her home at Smith Stearns where she was kindly cared for by Mrs. Stearns. The direct cause of her death was tuberculosis of the bowels.
Miss Jennie Clason was born in Jacksonville Township, Chickasaw county, in 1858, and all of her life, excepting nine years, when she lived at West Union, was spent in this county. She was the mother of eight children, two of whom have preceded the mother to the other shore. Those living are Mrs. Fred Aldrich, of Hampton; Mrs. M. A. Smith, and Mrs. M. A. Jones, of Waterloo; Clyde, of Duluth; Bennie, of Waterloo, and Bessie of Grundy Center. She was also a sister of Mrs. A. S. Coler, of this city; Mrs. Chas. Taylor, of New Hampton, Mrs. Avis Dalton, of Chicago; and Wm. Clason, of Minneapolis, all of whom were present at the funeral. A father also survives her, and was present at the funeral.
The funeral was held at the Methodist church Wednesday at 2:30 p.m., Rev. Sinden officiating, and the remains were laid to rest in Oak Hill Cemetery.
