EMERSON, Mrs. Emanuel (Lizette) 1868 - 1921
MRS. E. EMERSON ENDED HER LIFE BY INHALING GAS
She Had Been Ill For Long Time and Was Staying At Home Of Her Sister.
FUNERAL AT GRAND VALLEY
Mrs. Emanuel Emerson, aged 52 years, ended her life Saturday morning at the home of her sister, Mrs. Samuel I. Small, 234 Brook street, by inhaling natural gas through a rubber hose which she removed from a small stove in the bed room which she occupied on the second floor of the Small residence. Mrs. Emerson had been dead about ten minutes when Mrs. Small discovered her and her untimely passing came as a great shock to her relatives and friends.
Had Been Ill Long Time.
Mrs. Emerson had been in poor health for some time and had been in Titusville under the care of a physician for the past five weeks. The complication of ailments with which she was afflicted had affected her mind, and members of her family had been watching her closely for some time fearing she might attempt to take her life. Mrs. Emerson came to Titusville five weeks ago to consult a physician and because of her weakened condition was prevailed upon to remain for a time with her daughter, Mrs. Jerome Eddy of Bank street where she had been until late last week when she went to the home of her sister for a visit.
Mrs. Small heard her sister walking in the room up stairs early Saturday morning and thinking that she was dressing began to prepare her breakfast. After getting the meal ready, Mrs. Small noticed that all was quiet up stairs and she started up to call her sister to breakfast. When she reached the hall, she noticed strong odor of gas and rushing up to the room found her sister in the bed with the coverings over her head, the rubber hose in her mouth and the gas turned on.
A physician was called and he said that Mrs. Emerson had been dead at least ten minutes and perhaps longer. Acting Coroner Robert A. Kerr made an investigation and issued a certificate of death from suicide.
Was Born at Garland.
Mrs. Emerson was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.F. Burdick and was born at Garland on Sept. 19, 1868. She was united in marriage with Mr. Emerson on March 23, 1888 and nearly all of her married life had been spent on Emerson Hill near Grand Valley. To Mr. and Mrs. Emerson were born four children, two of whom survive, Mrs. Jerome Eddy of this city and Miss Lavada Emerson, who graduated from Titusville high school last June and resides at home. Besides the husband and two daughters, Mrs. Emerson is also survived by her father and the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. C.E. Fradick of Kennedy, N.Y., Mrs. A.A. Emerson of Pleasantville, Rev. Leon Burdick of Sharon, Mrs. Bert Eddy, Mrs. Charles Manross and Mrs. Samuel I. Small of this city and Clyde Burdick of Kane. She also had four grandchildren.
Mrs. Emerson was a member of the Grand Valley United Brethren church and its various ladies societies, also of the W.C.T.U. She was a faithful and dutiful wife, a kind and loving mother and possessed those Christian traits of character which endeared her to all who knew her. She was also a member of Grand Valley Grange.
The remains will be taken to Grand Valley on the 7:10 a.m. New York Central train tomorrow and services will be condicted in her memory at the United Brethren church in that village at 10 o'clock Rev. Mr. Platz, pastor of the church officiating.
