Baker, Mary Catherine (Mowder)

Mary Catherine Mowder

AKA: Mary H. Mouder

Mrs. Vincent M. Baker died at her home near Laings, [OH], Sunday about one o'clock. She had been ill for the past two months from an infection in her foot, but recently it seemed danger from that trouble was past.

Sunday she ate a hearty dinner and seemed unusually cheerful and well, when she suddenly became faint and asked to be taken to her bed, where she died a few minutes later. Her son, John, had just left a few minutes before on his way back to Wheeling, under the impression that his mother was in a fair way toward complete recovery.

Mrs. Baker leaves a husband, two sons, John Baker of Wheeling, O.M. Baker of Akron, and two daughters, Mrs. Ada Gillespie of Woodsfield and Mrs. F.S. Eshleman of Casper, Wyoming.

Funeral services were held Wednesday, October 26th, at Moffett's M.E. Church, on Jackson's Ridge. Burial in the church cemetery.
