Mrs. Elizabeth A. Griffith died Monday at the home of her son, Frank Griffith in this city. She lacked only a few weeks of being 87 years of age and death resulted from the gradual wasting away of her strength on account of old age. The funeral will be held this afternoon at 3 o’clock and the services will be conducted by Rev. W. E. Adams of the Baptist Church. Interment will be made in the Oak Hill Cemetery. Two sons, Frank Griffith of this city and William E. Griffith now living in Council Bluffs, survive her. Her husband died several years ago. Mrs. Griffith was highly regarded in this community of which she had been a resident for many years.
