DEATH OF MRS. ALFRED HENDRICKSON

 
The following was given us for publication. Mrs. Hendrickson was the wife of a former Greenwood boy, Alfred Hendrickson, who is well known here.


Mrs. Alfred Hendrickson, after a long season of sickness covering a year or more, died in the White hospital in Lewiston Monday. The funeral was held in Asotin Wednesday forenoon at eleven o'clock, in the Merchant Undertaking Chapel, Rev. J. G. Carrick preaching the funeral, and the remains were placed at rest in the Asotin Cemetery.


Mrs. Hendrickson, whose maiden name was Ruby May Appleford, was born in Craige, Wash. on April 13th, 1890 and would have been thirty years of age, had she lived on a few days longer. She was united in marriage to Alfred Hendrickson on July 11, 1914, and has since lived with her husband on their farm near Anatone, until one year ago when she contracted the influenza, from which she never entirely recovered, but developed into tuberculosis and other complications. During the past year she has submitted to several operations hoping to regain her health, but all were to no avail, and her condition became continually worse until passing away on March 28th, 1921.


Mrs. Hendrickson was a refined retiring lady, highly respected and beloved by all who knew her, and was kind, neighborly and friendly. Beside her husband, Mrs. Hendrickson leaves two little sons, Elvin, aged five and LeRoy, aged three a mother, Mrs. Wm. Appleford, four sisters and five brothers, all of whom in their great bereavement have the sympathy of all.
