OBITUARY – Mrs. Price Toothman
East Liverpool Tribune
Mrs. Price Toothman, aged 42 years died at her home in Pink alley at 11:20 o’clock yesterday (September 15, 1903). She had been ill since July 2, but was thought to be convalescent until early yesterday morning when her condition became critical. De. W. J. Taylor was called with a view to moving her to the Taylor hospital for treatment. After making an examination Dr. Taylor was convinced that she could not live but a few hours and advised against her removal. She died shortly afterward, the physician ascribing her death primarily to heart failure.
Mrs. Toothman was born and reared in Washington county Ohio, being a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edmund Lisk. In 1887 she was married to Price Toothman in Wellsville, since which time they have lived in this city. To them were born four children, three girls and one boy, ranging in age from 5 to 15 years. Besides them and her husband who is a kilnman at the D. E. McNicol pottery, she leaves a father living in Washington, a brother, Alexander Lisk, two half-brothers, John and Nicholas Lisk, and a half-sister, Mrs. Edward Backham, all of this city.
The funeral services will be held at the house at 2 o’clock tomorrow afternoon. Interment at Spring Grove.
The deceased was a good kind woman, whose death casts a gloomy shadow over a hitherto happy home. To the husband, bereft of his helpmate, and to the children, some of whom are too young to realize their irreparable lose, the sympathy of the community will be extended.
