DEATH FO MRS. G. B. MARROW
Stricken With Heart Disease, She Dies in Three Hours.
Mrs. Elizabeth Marrow, wife of G. B. Marrow, confectioner, died suddenly at her residence, No. 455 East Orange, on Friday afternoon. She was in the store as late as 4 o'clock in the afternoon, waiting on customers, and shorthly after that hour complained of feeling badly. She went to her room and said she would lie down until supper time. In about an hour it was seen that she was getting worse, but nothing serious was apprehended. It was thought best to send for her physicians, and Doctors Herr and Netscher were summoned. They quickly responded and did all in their power for Mrs. Marrow, but she was beyond medical aid. She sank rapidly until after 7 o'clock, when she died. She had complained for several months of pain in the region of her heart, and had numerous spells within the past few months. The doctors pronounced heart disease as the cause of death.
