Estes, Miss Ella 1854-1932 New Lisbon Obituary

Garrattsville Woman Dies Suddenly at Home
New Lisbon, March 18---Miss Ella Estes, 78 years old, passed away suddenly in her sleep this morning at the home of her brother-in-law, Albert Tyler of Garrattsville. Death was caused by acute indigestion, according to Dr. V. F. Bishop, coroner.
She was in her usual health early last evening and with her niece, Mrs. Minnie Tyler, spent some time visiting with friends. Upon arriving home, however, she complained of severe pains in her stomach. Her niece gave her medicine which seemed to relieve her. Miss Estes went to bed as well as usual but about 5 o'clock this morning Mrs. Tyler heard her making a strange noise. Upon investigation it was found that she had expired.
The deceased was born in the town of New Lisbon, February 3, 1854, the daughter of Wilber and Lydia (Coon) Estes. Most of her life was passed in this vicinity. Surviving is one brother, Lewis Estes of Mt. Vision, and several nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be held from her home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. E. E. Hutchinson of Morris will officiate. Burial will take place in the Butternut Valley cemetery at Brick School House.
