Miss Sarah Tufton was born in Fillmore County, Minnesota, October 28, 1871. She came with her parents to Mitchell Co., Iowa when she was but a child. Here she attended school and here she was confirmed by Rev. J. M. Eggen.

At one time she had a millinery store in Lyle. About thirty years ago she moved to Rushford, Minnesota, where she was engaged in the same kind of business.

Miss Tufton is spoken of by those who knew her as a woman of a most pleasing personality; she spread sunshine and cheer wherever she went.

She passed away at Minneapolis after four weeks' illness January 14th, having reached the age of 53 years, 2 months and 16 days. She is survived by two sisters and two brothers, namely, Mrs. Chris Hanson, Mrs. A. O. Nelson, Bernie Tufton and O. J. Arestaid.

Funeral was conducted by Rev. C. S. Vang at Our Saviors Lutheran Church, Lyle, Saturday, January 17th with interment at Pleasant Hill Cemetery.

The remains were shipped here from Minneapolis Friday, accompanied by Mrs. Chris Hanson, her sister, of Bucyrus, N. D.
