Those who have known Mrs. Bothum would scarcely believe that the neighbors, friends and relatives would so soon be gathered for the purpose of showing their last respects in a funeral service.

And few indeed knew that the deceased had been in poor health until they learned that only a few days ago she had gone to Rochester to submit to an operation. This was soon followed by the report that she had passed to the great beyond Saturday evening.
