OBITUARY ~ ELTA FERN (HATCHETT) HORTON

Elta Fern Hatchett, daughter of Andrew and Rose Hatchett, was born near Bedford, Iowa, August 23, 1897, and died at her home east of Bedford, Feb. 15, 1936. She grew to womanhood in the vicinity of Conway, Iowa, having lived all her life in Taylor county, with the exception of a short time spent in Creston.

She was married to Floyd Horton, June 1, 1922. There were no children. Besides her husband, she is survived by her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Hatchett of Lenox; three sisters, Mrs. Claudia Severn and Mrs. Grace Adair of Lenox, and Mrs. Pearl Dotts of Los Angeles, Calif.; one brother Manford Hatchett. A brother and sister have preceded her in death.

Elta was of a joyous, sunny disposition and those nearest her will sadly miss her gay laugh and ready smile.

Funeral services were held at the Crew funeral home Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 18, at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. W. C. Henn, pastor of the Clearfield Methodist church. Interment was in the Clearfield cemetery.

Music was in charge of Misses Margaret, Lois and Sue Swan and Elsie Fawcett, accompanied by Mrs. Belle Anderson. Pall bearers were Lawrence Kilby, Dick Pottinger, Dean Brown, George O'Dell, Arthur Lourie and Sam Parrish.

NOTE: Elta was poisoned by strychnine on Valentine's Day 1936. She died the following day. Elta's husband's mistress, Anna JOHNSTON, had purchased strychinine. Both Anna and Floyd were convicted of Elta's murder and sentenced to life in prison. Floyd HORTON Murder Trial ~ SRB
