SUDDEN DEATH TAKES MRS. HARRY EAGER
ILL BUT A FEW HOURS
A shock to her family as well as to her many friends was the sudden death at 1:20 o'clock this afternoon of Mrs. EAGER,
wife of Harry M. [Bertha Evelyn (JOOS)) EAGER, at her home on North Fourth Avenue. Mrs. EAGER was slightly indisposed this morning due to a
headache but was up and around until a short time before her death. Her daughter Mildred, aged,had taken dinner to
her mother and had just reached her bedside when Mrs. EAGER passed away. Death was due to heart trouble, from which she
had been ailing for some time. Mrs. EAGER was at a social gathering Wednesday afternoon and from all appearances seemed
to be as well as ever. Mildred was the only one with her mother at the time of her death.
Mrs. EAGER is survived by her husband, two sons Thornton and Lawrence and daughter Mildred. She had made her home in
Jamestown for many years. Surviving her besides her family are a sister, Mrs. Floyd NOWLIN and father Marin JOOS, also
of this city.
Funeral arrangements will be announced tomorrow.
