MRS. T. J. DICE DIES SUDDENLY IN DENVER. Her End Came Very Suddenly After Short Siege of Bronchial Pneumonia.
The news of the death of Mrs. T. J. DICE in Denver last Saturday afternoon was received in Eagle with surprise and great sorrow. It was generally known here that she was sick at her apartments in Denver, but that her condition was in the least serious was not known here, and, from what we learn, her illness did not take a critical turn until a few hours before death's claim was made.
Together with her husband, Mrs. DICE went to Denver about the first of the year to remain for the remainder of the winter. During the week of the stock show she was taken sick, but her condition was not alarming, and had so improved that Mr. Dice was enabled to leave her bedside for a business trip to Eagle county the first of this month. The first intimation friends here had that her illness had become alarming was the message of her death, at St. Luke's hospital in Denver, where she had been removed only a few hours previous. Bronchial pneumonia was the direct cause of her demise.
Lula May GOFFIN was born in Ohio, November 3, 1874, moving to Colorado with her parents when a very small child, and to Eagle county in 1888, settling on Lake creek. She grew to womanhood in that neighborhood, and in 1893, June 28, was married to T. J. DICE. Since their marriage she and her husband have made Eagle their home, where both had been prominent in the affairs of the growing community during a period of nearly thirty years. Besides her husband, her death is mourned by her mother and stepfather, now living near Sacramento, Calif., one brother, --. --. GOFFIN, living at Minturn, and two sisters, Mrs. A. W. BURNISON, of Denver, and one living in Ft. Lupton.
The funeral was held from the Olinger undertaking chapel in Denver Monday afternoon, and the remains laid to rest in the Fairmount cemetery. The services were attended by twenty-five or thirty Eagle county people, some of whom now live in Denver, and the pall bearers were all former friends from Eagle, being Milby FRASIER, Grover LIKES, Fred MARTINEX, Ben M. WHITE, Peter THOBORG and Ed. SLAUGHTER. James L. NORVELL, of Steamboat Springs and an old friend of Mr. and Mrs. DICE, conducted the burial service at the graveside.
During almost a lifetime spent in Eagle county the deceased had made many lasting friendship, and the news of her death will leave a shadow of sadness in every corner of the county, while the bereaved husband has the heartfelt sympathy of all in his sudden great loss. Mr. DICE himself, prostrated by grief, is sick in Denver and was not permitted by his physician to follow the remains of his beloved wife to their last resting place in the cemetery.
