While Milking Yesterday Morning Estimable Woman
Stricken With Heart Trouble.

While out milking yesterday morning (October 20, 1911) Mrs. Nancy A. Stanley, aged 69 years, widow of Henry F. Stanley was stricken with heart failure and died instantly. Mrs. Stanley had been enjoying the best of health and her death was a shock to her friends and relatives. She has been staying at the home of a son-in-law, J. W. Beaver on Mapletree street, and when Mrs. Beaver left for her work in the morning, her mother had been sitting at the table eating her breakfast, after having finished the meal and attending to the kitchen work, Mrs. Stanley went to milk. She had almost completed the task when she was stricken. The deceased is survived by 12 children, four of whom reside in East End, and the others in Parkersburg, W.Va. The ones in East End are Adam, Richard, Elmer, and Mrs. J. W. Beaver. Funeral services were held from the home of J. W. Beaver last night, Rev. J. Walter Watson, pastor of the Second United Presbyterian church officiating. The body will be taken to Parkersburg today, where it will be interred in Farson’s cemetery.
