Dies Very Suddenly
The community was greatly saddened yesterday morning when it was learned that Mrs. Delia Hines had dropped dead at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Peter Poirot. Mrs. Hines came down from Chicago last Saturday to visit her daughter and to attend Decoration Day services here, and apparently was in her usual health up [to] the time of her death.

Funeral services will be held at the M.E. church in Lowell tomorrow (Friday) at 1 p.m.
