"In the midst of life we are in death"
This was exemplified by the sudden passing away of Jesse Loder at his
home in Auburndale last night at 10:30 o'clock. Deceased was sitting
up, perusing a paper an hour before the grim messenger delivered his imperative
summons. The cause of death was heart failure. He was taken
ill suddenly and died before a physician could be summoned. Deceased
was born in Stuben County, New York, was 56 years old at the time of his
death and been a resident of this county for the past eight years.
He had made his home for some time in the old Auburndale Hotel. He
was a member in good standing of the Fraternal Aid Association and the
A.O.U.W., and carried $2000 in insurance in each organization. Deceased
leaves a devoted wife. The funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon at
1:30 p.m. from the family residence at Auburndale and the remains will
be interred in the new cemetery. Just which organization will have
charge of the final obsequies the writer is at present unable to say, but
