She took charge of the retail business in Maket Place. She was a very capable and obliging business woman, and possessed of exceedingly good taste, and her genial nature made her many friends both inside and outside of business, and news of her death came as a shock to many people. To her husband and four daughters ,whose ages range from thirteen years to six months, sincere sympathy is extended.
