|DEATH CAME TO CLAIM MRS. FRANK SLOAN
Death came to claim Mrs. Frank Sloan Monday evening about 11 o’clock. Epilepsy was the indirect cause of her death.
She had been a sufferer for many years from this aliment and during the past three months the attacks had become more frequent. She had been under the doctor’s care for the past few weeks and had received attention about 7 o’clock that evening. She passed away about 11 o’clock; due to the fact her heart was not able to withstand the recurring attacks.
Maud Fern Potts, youngest daughter of David M. and Mary R, Potts, was born in Princeville, Illinois, June 4, 1886 and died in Princeville September 24, 1923, aged 37 years, 3 months and 20 days.
She was united in marriage to Frank L. Sloan in Princeton, Iowa, September 24,1907 and made her home here since that time.
To this union one child was born, little Frances Maxine, aged 8 years.
Mrs. Sloan united with the Presbyterian church when a young girl and has always been a firm believer in the Christian religion, but on account of her ill health she has not attended the service as she desired.
She leaves her husband and little daughter, five sisters, two brothers, and many friends to mourn her untimely death.
The funeral services were held this afternoon for the Presbyterian church, Rev. John Acheson in charge of the services. Interment took place in Princeville cemetery.
