She was born in 1884 and married Rice A Howell here in Wenatchee on the 16th of June last year.
The young couple lived in Seattle until the 11th of May, when they came to visit Mrs. Howell's brother, Harold Glazier. Her mother came from Chesea, Michigan to be in attendance during the sickness. A happy, lovable baby, three months old, is in the grief-stricken home, destined now to face the world without a mother's love.
