Mrs. Bertha Wright, wife of A. M. Wright, died at her home on the north side early last Monday morning [September 30, 1901] of typhoid fever. She had been sick for a couple of weeks but as her friends had all long hoped for her early recovery, her death came as a great shock.
The high esteem in which Mrs. Wright was held was evidenced by the many sincere expressions of sympathy and the presence of so many at the services on Tuesday afternoon at the home. Besides the grief-stricken husband, she leaves six children, who are thus deprived of the love and care of an affectionate and devoted mother. To them all, in their great bereavement, the entire community is extending deep sympathy.
Bertha was the daughter of Orrin Georgia and Susan Murray. She was born November 1867 in Otsego Co., NY. She married Alfred Malcolm Wright on June 21, 1886 in Otsego Co., NY. Interment at IOOF Cemetery.
