Mrs. Mattison Dead
Occurred Yesterday at 11 O'Clock - The Funeral Tomorrow.
Friends were shocked yesterday with the news of the death of Mrs. Gladys Mattison, wife of E. H. Mattison, and the sympathy of the community will go out to the relatives in their deep sorrow. Mrs. Mattison passed away yesterday morning at 11 o'clock, after several weeks' illness due to complications arising from child-birth. As reports from her bedside for a period had been of encouraging nature, friends had anticipated an early recovery, so the fatal turn the illness took came as a surprise. Of pleasing disposition, Mrs. Mattison had cultivated hundred of friends in the city and she was extremely popular with all who enjoyed her acquaintance.
The deceased, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Harrington, was born at Browersville, Minn., in 1887. She came with the family to Lewiston in 1892 and this city has always been her home. On December 19 last she was united in marriage to Mr. Mattison at Los Angeles, he being the well-known ticket agent at the Lewiston union depot. She is survived by Mr. Mattison, by her mother, Mrs. J. M. Harrington, and by three sisters and six brothers. The sisters are Mrs. C. W. Robnett, Mrs. Minnie Faust and Miss Nellie Harrington. The brothers are Ellsworth, Lafayette, Jerry, George, Louis and Jason.
The funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from the Vassar chapel, the services to be conducted by Rev. Somerville, of the Episcopal church.
