LeMars Sentinel, Thursday, March 28, 1901, Page 3, Column 4:

    Died, at the home of her sister, Mrs. A. M. Cutland on Thursday
morning, March 21, 1901, of tuberculosis and edema of the lungs, Ethel
E., wife of Oscar Haviland, of Seney, aged 20 years, 8 months and 12
days.  The funeral was attended by a very large concourse of people at
the house on Sunday morning, March 24, Rev. F. W. Wilson, of Cushing,
Iowa, officiating.  The husband and relatives including her brother and
sister from Wisconsin, and a number of friends from Sioux City and other
points were present, and the entire audience sympathized with the
stricken husband and relatives in the most heartfelt manner.  The floral
tributes were beautiful and numerous.  Among them was a Maltese cross
from the Epworth League, also a wreath from members of the league and
other friends.  The bearers were Miss Ida and Sadie Alderson, Miss
Bessie March, Miss Bessie Kennedy, Miss Marie McKnight, Miss Emma Becker
and six young men as escorts.  The young ladies carried white flowers
which they cast into the grave as they lowered here to her last resting
    Rarely has there been seen in our community such evidence of
sympathy and loving remembrance as was shown on this sad occasion.
    Ethel was the pride of her new home in which she took much interest.
She began her Christian life on the 18th of January, and continued true
to her God through her whole sickness.  She has lived in this vicinity
for the past five years and had just taken upon herself the cares of a
home when disease overtook her and was not relieved from her suffering
until last Thursday morning, when God saw fit to call her up higher
where sorrow and suffering are not known.
    She leaves a husband of 24 years to wend his way through this wide
world alone, but with the thought of meeting again and with the
encouraging words of his friends, we feel he will be ready to meet
whatever may come.  She also leaves a father, two sisters and three
brothers to whom we extend our heartfelt sympathy.
