Mrs. Adolph Noster

Mrs. Annie Laurie Noster, aged 41 years, wife of Mr. Adolph Noster, died suddenly at their home this morning at 2 o’clock, and will be buried tomorrow—Wednesday—afternoon at 3 o’clock from the Baptist Church, of which she was a devout member.

Mrs. Noster leaves a baby only two days old. She is also survived by three other children and her husband. She was a sister of Mrs. (Dr.) E. E. Scott and Messrs. Henry and Joe Freeman, all of Bay City.

Decedent was a devout Christian, was reared in this section and had many friends, attracted to her by her many lovable traits of character. The shock of her death came as a distinct shock to all who knew her, as she has apparently always been in the very best of health.

The Tribune joins the many friends of the bereaved ones in sympathy for them in their sad hour.
