Payette Enterprise (March 12, 1925)


It is with a great degree of sorrow that we are again called up to record the death of another prominant and highly esteemed citizen, Peter Albert, who passed away without a moment's warning at his home near New Plymouth, Wednesday evening, February 4th, will be keenly missed by the people of his community.

His death came when least expected. The family had been listening to the radio entertainment when Mrs. Albert was suddenly taken with a severe coughing spell, her condition appeared alarming and Dr. Drysdale was called. While caring for Mrs. Albert, the doctor noticed that Mr. Albert, who had for some time past, been affected with heart trouble, was breathing peculiarly and while preparations were being made to administer a hypodermic, his heart ceased to beat and the end came while in the midst of a conversation.

Mr. Albert was 65 years of age and came to New Plymouth from Dunshore, Pennsylvania, 25 years ago, where he continued to live until the time of his death. Besides his wife he is survived by one son Arthur Albert of new Plymouth, a daughter, Mrs. Oscar Ficht of Battle Ground, Washington, and one brother, Geo. Albert of Butte Falls, Oregon. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community, who will also feel the loss of a good neighbor and friend. Funeral services were held at the Congregational church of New Plymouth, Sunday, March 8th at 2:30, conducted by Rev. Feich, assisted by Rev. Knight.
