Mrs. D. W. C. Dunwell Dead.
Pioneer of Idaho Passed Away Early Hour Yesterday Morning.
Mrs. D. W. C. Dunwell, aged 81 years, 11 months and 5 days, passed away at 5 o'clock yesterday morning at the St. Joseph hospital. For some weeks she has been failing rapidly, and so the end was expected. Mrs. Dunwell has been a resident of Lewiston and vicinity for over 30 years, and for a long period the family resided east of the city on Clearwater, occupying a homestead widely known as the "Dunwell place," and located near the Central Ferry. Mr. Dunwell died several years ago, at that time the aged couple making their home with their daughter, Mrs. Al Smith, who died five years ago. In recent years Mrs. Dunwell has made her home with Mrs. Henderson Crites on East Main street, leaving there only a few days ago when her condition necessitated removal to the hospital. She is survived by one son, Daniel Dunwell of this city.
The funeral will be held at 10 o'clock this morning from the Vassar chapel.
