Death of Mrs. J.T. Becher

 

Mrs. J.T. Becher of Briarton passed to her last rest Wednesday, July 18 at 4:40 a.m. after suffering for many weary weeks and after undergoing a severe operation at St. Mary’s Hospital in which one breast was entirely removed.  She lived one month after coming home from the hospital.  Mrs. Becher was a woman who was universally loved.  A true helpmate to her husband, a tender mother and a loving friend to all who were fortunate in knowing her.

Her suffering at times was terrible to witness, but through it all no word of complaint passed her lips and her thoughts were always for those about her, never for herself.  She is laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery at Seymour beside her eldest daughter, Mrs. Gokey, who was drowned at Lake Shawano ten years ago.  Fifty relatives beside the family came to pay their last loving tribute to her they all hold dear.  Mrs. Becher was an ardent lover of flowers and many beautiful floral designs testify that relatives and friends did not forget her love for flowers.  She leaves a husband and five children to mourn her loss.  Mrs. Becher was born Sept. 15, 1849, would therefore be 57 years 10 months and 3 days of age.
