DEATH OF MRS. DR. PAYNE.
At her Home at Laporte, Indiana.
Interment Here this Afternoon.
Sorrow reigns at Sunderland Villa, the home of Mrs. W. H. Storey, this week. The death of the youngest daughter, Mrs. Dr. J. D. Payne, at her home at Laporte, Ind., on Monday, is the sad cause.
While visiting in Acton about a year ago, Mrs. Payne was taken ill and underwent a severe operation. Her health has never since been good. About a week prior to her death, while returning from Chicago by boat, she fell heavily upon the deck and sustained internal injuries which resulted fatally. On Wednesday a telegram came to the friends here stating that she was seriously ill. Mr. W. A. Storey left by first train and on Sunday morning Mrs. Alex Secord and Dr. J. M. McDonald, who attended Mrs. Payne during her illness here, proceeded to LaPorte, arriving that evening. Notwithstanding all that human skill could accomplish death came next morning.
Edith Pearl Storey was the youngest daughter of the late W. H. Storey and was born in Acton in April, 1874. She was married to Dr. J. D. Payne, then of Richland, Iowa, in March 1892. Two sons, William Robert, and Franklin Storey, aged 7, are left to mourn the loss of a mother's tender affection and care. She was a member of the Methodist church at Laporte and greatly beloved by all who knew her.
The remains arrived in Acton on Tuesday morning accompanied by the sorrowing husband, the two little sons, and the friends who had been summoned to her bedside. The funeral will be held this afternoon. A service will be held in the Methodist church at three o'clock and the remains will afterward be laid to rest beside her father and brothers in the family plot at Fairview Cemetery.
The sympathy of the community goes out to the bereaved family.
