Mrs. Sarah Scott died very suddenly at the home of her daughter, Mrs. D. N. Crane last Friday morning. She arouse in the morning and seemed as well as usual when suddenly she became unconscious and died within a very few minutes. The funeral was held at the Methodist Church Saturday afternoon at 2:30. Rev. Barton conducted the services.

Sarah Bontoft was born in Great Carrolton, Lincolnshire England, May 14, 1827. She was married to John Scott, June 2, 1849. Six sons and four daughters were born to this union. The family immigrated to America and landed in Quebec, May 18, 1952. Two of her sons died in Illinois, and one in Iowa. Her husband died May 7, 1902.

Six years ago she had a stroke of paralysis from which she never fully recovered; and perhaps a second attack of the same disease took her suddenly away in the early morning of April 12, 1907.

Three of her children, Mrs. L. W. Krieger, Mrs. D. C. Crane and Mr. A. L. Scott, live here. A son lives in Denver, a son and daughter in Oregon and a son and daughter in St. Louis.

Mrs. Scott was raised a Christian and in early life united with the church of England. For months past she has seemed to be anxious for the messenger to come and call her home. Her faith in the Lord was like that of a child.
