Mrs. J. C. Garten
Mrs. J. C. Garten, of Lake City township, died on Wednesday, February 26, 1902. She was sick only a short time. The funeral services were held on Thursday and the remains interred in the Garten homestead graveyard. Mrs. Garten is survived by a husband and seven children. She was a woman of a kind and gentle disposition and the community in which she lived mourns her untimely departure.
The sorrowing husband and children have our most sincere sympathy. This is an excellent family and we deplore their great misfortune.
