Henrietta Ries Seaverson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Ries of Mona was born in Union township, Mitchell county, Iowa, March 12, 1878 and died in Lyle, Minn., Sept. 8, 1900, at the age of 22 years, 4 months, and 27 days. April 14, 1898 she married Mr. S. Seaverson. To this union a son was born, a bright little fellow a little over a year old, who survives to cheer the lonely hours of the stricken husband and father.

Mrs. Seaverson was an intense sufferer for weeks and months and was finally taken to the hospital where a critical operation was performed from which she never recovered.

Loving hands were doing all that was possible to be done, when the great physician came and graciously relieved her of all her sufferings.

The stricken husband and dear little boy have the sympathy of a host of friends in this their sad affliction.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the M.E. church Rev. G.E. Von Hagen officiating. The church was tastefully decorated, the floral tributes were beautiful and a vast number of friends followed the remains to the grave at Sunnyside cemetery.
