Ora Gertrude Overing Guttridge

The Payette Independent
Thursday, November 01, 1928


It was with sincere sorrow that the Payette friends of Mrs.. A. A. Gurrtidge learned of her passing away at her Oregon Slope home, Monday, October 29, after a brief illness from pneumonia.

Ora Gertrude Overing was born in Wallingford, Vermont, August 19, 1868, and came to Charter Oak, Iowa with her parents where, on September 17, 1890, she was united in marriage to Alonzo A. Guttridge. Three children were born to their union, Ida May, Helen and Raymond. The two later, with Mr.. Guttridge survive and are left to mourn the loss of mother and wife.

Many years ago Mrs. Guttridge united with the Christian church and her life was lived in consistent and earnest endeavor to carry out the will of the Master in her relations with others. For 60 years, 1 month and 14 days she lived and her influence in the communities where she resided was ever for the betterment of the world and those with whom she came in contact.

Funeral services were held at the Christian church this (Thursday) afternoon at 2:30, and were conducted by Rev. Mrs. J. S. Beem and interment took place at Riverside cemetery.


Our kind neighbors and friends have our sincere and grateful thanks for their many acts of tenderness and sympathy in the illness and death of our beloved wife and mother. We also appreciate the many beautiful floral offerings. A. A. GUTTRIDGE and FAMILY
