The East Liverpool Tribune

The death of Miss Ida E. Betz, aged 29 years, occurred Saturday afternoon(Apr. 28, 1906) at 1:20 o'clock at the home of Elmer Ralston in St. George street from injuries received while she was at work in Laughlin pottery No. 2, and from which she had been suffering the past month. Two weeks ago she was operated on and an improvement in her condition was noted until Friday when she was taken seriously ill, her death following Saturday.

The home of Miss Betz was in Canton but she has been employed at the Laughlin pottery for the past four years. Her brothers, William and Frank, of Canton, arrived at her bedside just an hour before she passed away. The former is a member of the Canton fire department and is known to a number in this city.

Funeral services were held at the Ralston home yesterday afternoon, the Rev. S. H. Peregoy of the Erie Street Methodist Episcopal church officiating. The body will be taken to Canton this morning and upon arrival there will be removed to the home of Mrs. J. R. Stambaugh, an aunt of the deceased, living in High street. Services will be held at the Stambaugh residence Tuesday and remains will be laid to rest in the West Lawn cemetery.
