Thursday, December 19, 1918
MISS LOU GARRETT has received notice from Cheyenne, Wyoming newspaper concerning the death of her niece, MRS. A. C. DENNIS, formerly, MISS ALMA PROFFER of Marietta. About two weeks ago Mrs. Dennis, then Mr. Dennis and finally their baby daughter FRANCES were successively taken to the private hospital. There Mrs. Dennis died Nov. 30. Mr. Dennis died the following day. Sickness at home prevented the parents of Mrs. Dennis, who live at Gainesville going to Cheyenne. Mr. Dennis’ mother, MRS. A. S. DENNIS of Oakland, California, arrived there a few hours after deaths occurred. The funeral, one of the very few double funerals held in Cheyenne, took place Thursday, Dec. 5 at Early’s Chapel. REV. J. S. STUBBLEFIELD of the First Presbyterian Church conducted the services, which under the rigid quarantine rules prevailing, could not be attended, even by those who had been intimate friends of the deceased. Mr. and Mrs. DENNIS left the next day for their home at Oakland. They were accompanied by their granddaughter FRANCES DENNIS.
