Death's peaceful call ended the earthly suffering of Mrs. Minnie E. Vorhies, wife of Dr. E.E. Vorhies, at the family home on North Fourth Street last evening about 11:30 o'clock. Cancer of the stomach was the cause of the dissolution. Mrs. Vorhies was 43 years of age.
Mrs. was born at Stafford, Monroe County, O., and was a daughter of Charles and Jane Cooper. She was married to Dr. E.E. Vorhies in the year 1884, and had lived here about 13 years.
The deceased is survived by her husband and two children, both of whom are young men, Homer C., aged 23, and Clyde L., aged 21, both are students in the S.O.M.U. She is also survived by one half-brother, James Foster of Lore City, and two sisters, Mrs. Maggie Morris of Cairo, West Va., and Mrs. Anne Smith of Casey, Iowa.
The deceased was a member of the First M.E. Church and took great interest in the work. She has been a great sufferer all her life and death came as a great relief to her.
An operation was preformed about a year ago last February which furnished relief only for a short time. Everything that medical aid could do was done for her but all to no avail. The many friends of the bereaved ones extend their sympathy to them in this their loss of a good wife and loving mother.
The kind and loving husband of the deceased, attentive at all hours, was most appreciated in securing relief for the suffering patient during her last few days.
