    Mrs. Alfred Rhoades Suddenly Stricken
    Last Saturday evening, Mrs. Alfred Rhoades, who had just returned from California the previous day, was visiting with her many friends on the streets and in the stores of Jefferson. So we may imagine how startled and shocked they were to learn Sunday noon that she had been suddenly stricken that forenoon while visiting in the home of her niece and nephew, Mr. and Mrs. Otho Shain, in Grant township. She had retired Saturday evening in her seemingly usual health. On arising late Sunday morning she prepared for herself a light breakfast. A short time afterward she complained of feeling slightly indisposed. Her illness increased in intensity, until a physician was called, but death came to her release before the doctor reached her bedside, a few minutes before noon. The funeral services are being held this afternoon in the Otho Shain home and the interment will be made in the Jefferson cemetery. While we have been able to secure only a very meager amount of data pertaining to her life, we learn that Jennie M. Elliott, the daughter of Frances and Lydia Elliott, was born in Wayne county, Indiana, on the twenty-first day of December, 1851, having lived at the time of her death sixty-nine years, five months and twenty-one days
    She came to Iowa with her parents in 1865, when they settled on a farm in Dallas county. In November, 1874, she was united in marriage to Alfred Rhoades. This union was blest by the birth of two sons, both of whom are living. Oscar resides in New York while Clyde is a resident of Jefferson.
    When but a girl, Mrs. Rhoades united with the United Brethern church and has never changed her church relations. She leaves the husband and two sons, one sister, Mrs. Wilcox of Pery, a brother, Mr. William Elliott of Des Moines, besides many more distant relatives, and a great host of friends in Dallas and Greene counties.

Mr. and Mrs. Rhodes spent the winter in California, arriving home from there last Friday. She seemed very much improved in health; in fact was up town Saturday evening, enjoying meeting old friends and neighbors. She was stricken with heart disease Sunday morning, and died before a physician could be summoned. Funeral services for this beloved woman will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Otho Shain home in Grant township.

The last move was to California. where it was thought that she could be brought back to health once more.
