Death and Burial of Mrs. Walter Newton — The Latter Occurred Monday

The funeral of Mrs. Walter Newton occurred from the Methodist church in Philomath Monday. The interment was in the Newton cemetery.

Mrs. Newton died Saturday. For three or four years, she had suffered more or less with asthma. She was convalescent from a recent attack, when she was seized with measles. At 11 o’clock Saturday, she was in a fair way for recovery. The complication of diseases however, suddenly became very violent, and two hours later, she expired.

Carrie Williams Newton was the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.J. Williams of Philomath. She was born in Benton county, where all her life was spent. About ten or twelve years ago she was united in marriage to Walter Newton, who survives her. She was aged about 32 years. A few years ago Mrs. Newton was in robust health, and on several occasions, a winner in contests of strength at Woodmen games. The survivors are the husband and three children.
