She Passed Away Yesterday Morning After a Brief Illness.

Mrs. Frances Anna Romer, aged 35 years, wife of Joseph Romer, died at St. Joseph's hospital yesterday morning at 5:08 o'clock, death resulting from an affliction of the liver from which she had suffered but two weeks. The first week of her ailment it was not thought serious, but one week ago today the disease had made such inroads on her health that she was forced to take to her bed, her removal from the family home in Steel addition to the hospital taking place Saturday night.

The family came to Lewiston a little less than two years ago, Mr. Romer opening a tailoring business here, which he still continues. Mrs. Romer was a woman of a lovable disposition, and since making this city her home had surrounded herself with many friends.

Aside from the bereaved husband there survive Josephine, a daughter aged 5, and two brothers, George Noton, of Seattle, who reached the city in response to a call the middle of last week, and Harry Noton, of San Francisco, who has received notification of his sister's death, but who will be unable to attend the funeral.

The funeral services will take place this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Vassar parlors, the Odd Fellows' lodge having charge, Mr. Romer being a member of that order. Friends and acquaintances are invited to attend. Interment will take place in the I. O. O. F. lot in the Lewiston cemetery.
