OBIT: MRS. LUCINDA SCOTT, 56, wife of Everett Scott, farmer, ended her life yesterday morning at their home on Frankfort R.F.D. 3, a short distance east of the Hillisburg road on highway 28. She hanged herself with a muslin strip in a woodshed adjoining the rear of the dwelling. Despondency due to ill health is believed to have been responsible for her self destruction. She has been in impaired health for a number of months. No notes assigning a reason were found in the home. She was telephoning a neighbor when her husband left the house sometime before nine o'clock, he was going to the barn for the morning work. Returning at 9:15 o'clock, not finding his wife in the house after vainly calling and searching each room, he went to the shed and was horrified to find her body. She had tightly knotted a piece of muslin around her throat and then stepped from the small box. She had been dead but a few minutes when found. Mr. Scott called W.F. Jones, Noel Scott and Don Orr, all neighbors, and they lowered the body and carried it into the house. James Kent, county coroner, was notified. The body was removed to Kempton to be prepared for burial. Mrs. Scott is survived by her husband, Everett Scott, and daughter, Mildred Alice; two sisters, Mrs. E.B. Moore and Mrs. Clara Grove, both of Scircleville, and two brothers, Stanley Cooper of Fort Wayne and Horace Cooper of Fairmount. Funeral services will be conducted at the Methodist Church in Scircleville, Monday afternoon, at 2 o'clock. The burial will be in Baptist cemetery, south of Scircleville.
