Sudden Deaths. — Last Sunday night Miss Mary Hunter, an aged resident of Shepherdstown, was suddenly taken ill, and before a physician could arrive she had died. The deceased was a sister of Capt. J. H. L. Hunter of this county, and was 73 years of age.
On Wednesday the community was greatly shocked by the announcement of the death of Mrs. Funk, the young wife of Mr. John J. Funk. Mrs. Funk had been assisting in the funeral preparations of Miss Mary Hunter, and about eleven o’clock returned to her home apparently as well as she ever was. When she arrived at her residence she spoke to several other persons in the house, and then went to her room. In a few moments a heavy fall was heard and upon an investigation being made Mrs. Funk was found to be lying lifeless on the floor. Dr. Marshall was hastily summoned, but as he arrived the unfortunate lady breathed her last, without having recovered consciousness. It could scarcely be realized by her friends that she who had been seen on the street a half hour before was now cold in death. To the bereaved husband is extended the sympathy of the entire community. Mrs. Funk was formerly Miss Davis, of Cavetown, Washington county, Md., and her remains were taken to that place for interment.
