    • MARY STRYKER DIES SUDDENLY AGED 88 YEARS

      One of Oldest Residents of Watsontown Succumbs to Attack of Acute Indigestion Active in Sunday School Work For More Than Fifty Years

      Following a sudden attack of acute indigestion, Mrs. Mary Stryker, one of the oldest and best known residents of this community, died last evening about 8:30 o'clock at the home of her niece, Mrs C.F. Yoder, on Elm Street. Her death came as a great shock to the family and her large circle of friends.

      Mrs. Stryker seemed to be in her usual health yesterday. She performed various duties about the home during the day. She was suddenly stricken after supper last evening and died within a short time.

      Mrs. Stryker observed her 88th birthday anniversary October 2. She was born in Milton. For more than fifty years she made her home in Watsontown.

      The deceased had an enviable church record. She was an active member of the First Lutheran Church up to the time of her death, taking an interest in all its workings. For more than fifty years she taught in the primary room of the Sunday school. Several years ago she was honored by the State Sabbath School Association, being presented with a medal in recognition of the long period of her Sunday school service. Before coming to Watsontown she taught in the primary room of Trinity Lutheran Church at Milton with Mrs. Kate Roat, who is still active at the age of ninety years. Mrs. Stryker was also a member of the missionary society.

      Besides her two nieces, Mrs. C.E. Yoder and Mrs. Bertram L. Strickland, of Watsontown, who made their home with her for many years, she is survived by two brothers and a sister, Clarence Strine and Harry Strine and Mrs. Kate Pfleegor, of Milton. She was the widow of Issac Stryker, who died many years ago.

      Funeral services will be held from the home of her niece, Mrs. Yoder, 614 Elm Street, Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. Howard K. Hilner, pastor of the First Lutheran Church, will officiate. The remains will be taken to Harmony Cemetery, Milton, for burial.
