MRS. HARRIETT PIKE
This community was greatly shocked Saturday morning by the sudden death of Mrs. Harriett Pike, aged 65 years, widow of the late Justin Pike. At 9:30 o'clock she was found by a neighbor dead on the floor beside her wash tub, where she had begun to wash out a few articles. Coroner G. D. Johnson of Oxford was called and pronounced the cause of death heart failure. She was a highly respected woman and an especial favorite of an extensive circle of young people. She was one of the vice presidents of the Village Cemetery Improvement association, having been a faithful member and an earnest worker since its organization.
She leaves one son, Leon Pike; one daughter, Mrs. Arthur J. Gates; three grandchildren and a half brother and sister, Wm. Hayden and Mrs. Geo. L. Barrows, to mourn her loss. The funeral will be held from Calvary church today at one o'clock, Rev. Dr. Duff officiating. Burial will be in the Village cemetery.
