DEATH OF MRS
Passes Away at an Early Hour
This Morning at Her Home
In This City.
From Friday's Daily. v
' Almost everyone in the city
was greatly shocked and sur
prised lo learn of the death of
Mrs. Virginia McVicker, which
occurred at her home; on North
Sixth street this morning at 4
o'clock as she had not apparent
ly been dangerously sick and was
able to be up and around until
yesterday, when she was taken
very sick and soon was attacked
by convulsions, which continued
until her death, which mercifully
brought an end to her sutTering.
The cause of her death was
uraemic poisoning, which grew
out of the sickness from which
this lady had been suffering for a
number of years, but. which was
not thought to have been danger
ous. Mrs. Virginia McVicker was
born, in Findlay, Ohio, August 21,
1835, and came to Plattsmouth in
188G, where for a number of
years she was engaged in stenog
raphic work ami was very highly
esteemed by a large circle of
friends, whom she made by her
pleasant and obliging manner,
and she was always very faithful
to. every task which she under
took. During the past few years
her time was taken up greatly
with the care of her mother, Mrs.
Shannon, until the death of that
lady on July t'2, and since that
time Mrs. McVicker has gradual
ly failed in health ami her friends
have been greatly worried as to
her condition for the past few
months, but there was no thought
that she was so near the closing
of her life unlil her sickness yes
terday. Surviving Mrs. McVicker are

who will receive the deepest sym
pathy of the entire community in
Iheir loss of their beloved sister.
Mrs. McVicker will be greatly
missed by her friends, whom she
had grown endeared to during
her long residence here, and her
loss will be sincerely .mourned
throughout tin city.
Yesterday afternoon the old
friends ami associates of Mrs.
Virginia McVicker. gathered at
the Methodist church to pay their
last tribute of respect to one
whom they had known so well
and favorably during her life
time, and it was with tear-dimmed
eyes that they witnessed the
departure of the funeral collage
for Oak II ill cemetery, where the
casket was consigned to the
The services were conducted
by Rev. F. M. Druliner, pastor of
the . Methodist church, and his
address was a most beautiful one
ami one that served greatly to
take away the sting of the sorrow
of parting with their loved one
from the family and friends. Rev.
Druliner took as the text for his
sermon the words of Christ to
St. peter, "What I Do Thou
Knowest Not, but Thou Shalt
Know Hereafter," and his ad
dress was one that rested like a
balm upon the hearts of his hear
ers. Mesdames E. II. Weecolt
and Mae Morgan sang several of
the old and favorite hymns of
the departed, "Abide With Me,"
'"Sun of My Soul." and 'Tarry
With Me," which had been so
well beloved during the lifetime
of Mrs. McVicker. The interment
was made in Oak Hill cemetery
beside the last resting place of
the father and mother, .who had
preceded her m death.
