Medical aid and a nurse were at once summoned but she was found to beyond help and passed away about four that afternoon, never regaining consciousness.

Her son, S. L. Bradley, arrived there early Saturday morning and started back with the remains Sunday morning, arriving in Wyanet on the afternoon train. The services were held in the M. E. church Monday afternoon, Rev. William Pinkney officiating. Burial in the Forest Hill cemetery at Wyanet. The remains were buried beside her husband who died in June, 1915.
