MURRAY, Mrs. Anna B.

Mrs.Anna B Murray, of Keyser, who was taken to Allegany hospital in Cumberland last week for an operation after an unanticipated relapse, died in the hospital Wednesday morning, February 12, 1913. The death of this widely known and most estimable lady is received as a shock by her many Keyser friends, they believing that the crisis in her case had been successfully passed.  But it appears, aggravated complications necessitated a second operation from which her prostrated vitalities failed to rally. The body was brought home Wednesday night and rests in a handsome casket, covered with beautiful floral tributes, where the many friends have called to take a last look at their friend. Tomorrow the funeral will take place.  Interment will be at Piedmont.
