Passing Away. Death came very suddenly last Monday evening to Mrs. Sarah Thompson at the Entler Hotel in Shepherdstown. Mrs. Thompson had come to the hotel to spend a few weeks, her son and son-in-law, John R. Thompson and T. A. Carter, being the proprietors of the house. She was seated at the supper table, and was in her usual good health and spirits, when she was seized with a severe coughing spell. As she coughed she burst a blood vessel and a profuse hemorrhage followed, and though a physician was immediately sent for, her death ensued before the doctor arrived. Her death was a great shock to her family and friends, coming as it did without any premonitory symptoms whatever. Mrs. Thompson, who was about 67 years of age, was a widow of Boston Thompson, whose death some twelve years ago, by a strange coincidence, was equally as sudden. She was a thoroughly good woman, and had been for many years a consistent member of the Southern Methodist Church. She was of a kind and cheerful disposition, helpful and considerate, and she will be greatly missed, not only in the family circle but by many friends and acquaintances. She is survived by four sons and four daughters: Edward and Jesse Thompson, of Nebraska; John R., of Shepherdstown; Luther, of this vicinity; Mrs. Geo. W. Moler and Mrs. T. A. Carter, of Shepherdstown; Mrs. M. M. Skinner and Mrs. Clay Moler, of this county; also one brother, William Hunter, of Iowa, and a sister, Mrs. Margaret Caton, east of town. The funeral service takes place this Thursday morning at 10 o’clock.
