Mrs. S. P. Hartzell
Alton Democrat of Dec 23, 1899 Hudson SD News (near
This summer her husband had built for her especial comfort and convenience the finest residence in these parts, modern and up to date throughout. But she lived but a short time in her new dwelling and her death was a very pathetic on as the luxurious dwelling built mostly for mother's sake, seems but an idle mockery now to the ones who loved her so truly and devotedly.
Her remains were laid to rest in the Eden cemetery on Sunday afternoon, and the largest crowd that ever gathered together to do honor to a beloved and esteemed departed one in this vicinity, was there to pay a last tribute of respect to the one gone before. She leaves a husband, three son, a daughter and many other relatives to mourn her loss. To those sorrowing ones we extend our heartfelt sympathy, and may He who tempers the wind to the shorn lamb, be with them and let them remember that she has but gone before to that land where pain and suffering are known no more forever.
