Mrs. Nettie Hurlburt, wife of C.F. Hurlburt, died at the residence of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. L Davis in this city, on Tuesday evening, May 29, 1894, aged about 27 years. The immediate cause of death was failure of the lungs as the result of a lingering illness with lagrippe or acute form of pneumonia. The lady had been ill and unable to rise from her bed since August and her demised had been daily expected for some weeks before the merciless hand of death relieved her of her great suffering.
Deceased’s maiden name was Miss Nettie B. Davis, being the third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. Davis of this city. She was born in Lane County, Oregon, on April 20, 1867 and was identified as one of Oregon’s noblest native daughters. She leaves a grief stricken young husband, father and mother and three sisters and one brother to mourn her untimely death. Mr. and Mrs. L. Davis, Mr. C.F. Hurlburt, Misses Etta and Fawny Davis, Mrs. Geo Dickinson and Mr. Merritt Davis, father and mother, husband, sisters and only brother of the deceased, have the sympathy of many friends in great sorrow.
Nettie B. Davis was married to C.F.Hurlburt on Feb 11, 1891, and one male child was born to her, it dying however, while an infant. Soon after Mr. and Mrs. Hurlburt were married they moved to Junction City, in this county, where Mr. Hurlburt is still engaged in the grocery business.
The funeral was conducted from the family residence on Olive Street to the Masonic Cemetery on Thursday afternoon, the obsequies being conducted by Rev. G. A. Blair. A wide circle of sorrowing friends and relatives attend the last and sad rites and join us in extending our sincerest sympathy to the young husband and immediate relatives.
