Cartwright, Martha (1890? - 6 Feb 1920)

Miss Martha Cartwright of Spencer, Wis., died at the home of her cousin, Charles Lau, in the town of Colby, Clark County, Wis., last Friday afternoon at 3:30, of pneumonia after an illness of a few days.

The young lady came from Spencer about two weeks ago to spend a week with Mr. Lau and his family and, as she was about to conclude her visit she was taken ill a week ago Wednesday. By the time medical aid reached her she was in a very critical condition and little or no hope for her recovery could be given and she passed away last Friday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock.

The remains were placed in charge of Undertaker F. W. Lulloff and on Monday were shipped to Spencer, accompanied by her mother, Mrs. Martin Cartwright, who arrived here on the day her daughter’s death occurred.

The funeral was held from the Methodist Church in Spencer, Wednesday, and the body put in it’s resting place in the Spencer Cemetery.

Deceased was 29 years of age and is survived by her mother, two brothers and three sisters, all living on a farm about two miles east of Spencer.
