Sudden Death
Of Mrs L.B. Stallins At Her Home Near Lewistown Sunday Last Sunday morning the citizens of the Lewistown vicinity were
shocked by the sad news that Mrs L.B. Stallins had breathed her last and passed to the great beyond.
She arose early that morning and was preparing breakfast when she called her husband, who was nearby, and told him to comd and help her as she was feeling badly. He went to her and she sank into his arms. He assisted her to a bed in an adoining room and had some one to come to Princeton for Dr. Shelby, but she died in a few minutes and before the doctor arrived. She had been in feeble health for about two years, but she was in her usual health, apparently on that morning and her sudden death which was due to heart trouble, was a great shock to her relatives and friends.
She was a member of the Lewistown Christian church. She leaves a husband and three children to mourn her death. Mrs Stallins was a sister of County Attorney .E. Baker, of this city. Her remains were laid to rest yesterday afternoon in the Woodrun graveyard near Lewistown in the presence of a large crowd of sorrowing friends. Caldwell Co 1906
