Mrs. Sedate Padelford
The sudden death of Mrs. S. Padelford which occurred at her home on Collins street Thursday morning shortly after - before 1 0'clock was a great shock to her family and friends. She has been ill more or less all winter and for the past two weeks suffered from an attack of the grip but her illness was not considered serious. In December she went to Minneapolis where she consulted a specialist. He pronounced her disease heart trouble. She returned home in a few days and the fears of the family were allayed by her improved condition. She was seemingly as well as usual when the family retired Wednesday evening. A few minutes before her death she called her daughter and her husband and almost before they realized it she had fallen into the last deep sleep from which none awoke.
Mrs. Padelford was a member of the Christian church and G. A. R. Circle, and was a woman much loved by all who knew her. She was especially devoted to her family.
She was born in Mower County fifty-one years ago the 3rd day of next March. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. Blyton. January 31, 1877, she was married to Sedate Padelford. She leaves besides her husband her father and one sister, Mrs. Warren Padelford of Lyle, and eight children, Art, Anna, May, Fay, Grace and Claud all living in Austin, Mrs. James Sullivan living in South Austin, Mrs. Frank Asher of Garry, S. Dak. Her death occured on the birthday anniversary of her eldest son.
The sympathy of the entire community goes out to this grief stricken family in the hour of their sorrow.
