Death of Mother McDonald

Mary McDonald, aged 69 years, died at her home in this city at 7:30 Friday morning, Nov. 24th, after a lingering illness with lung trouble. The funeral took place from the M.E. church, of which denomination deceased had long been a consistent member, Saturday at 2:30 p.m., when the mortal remains of Mother McDonald were lain by the side of her husband, who preceded her to the spirit world a little over a year ago.

Mother McDonald was a dear old soul, whose beautiful life made the world better wherever she came in contact with it. She leaves three children to mourn the loss of a noble Christian mother, the best friend given to man in this world. Mr. Eugene and Miss Josie McDonald reside in this city and Mr. Fred A. McDonald at Missoula, Mont. They have the sympathy of our people in their bereavement.
