“Death of Anna Templin: One
of Fairhaven’s Popular Young Ladies Passes Away After Two Weeks of
Miss Anna Florence Templin, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
I.C. Templin of this city, died on Wednesday, the 6th, at , after an illness of about two weeks.Miss Templin came home
from Seattle three weeks ago last Sunday, feeling somewhat indisposed, but
not taking to her bed until two weeks ago today.She was afflicted with a complication of
stomach trouble, not being able to eat and retain sufficient food for
nourishment; this condition naturally taxed her vitality to such an extent that
each succeeding day found her weaker, and it became evident to her friends that
life was slowly ebbing away.Her
physician, Dr. H.A. Compton, did not have much hope of her recovery for two or
three days previous to her death, although everything that medical skill could
furnish was promptly administered.Monday and Tuesday of this week found her with much less physical energy
than the previous week, and her sinking condition continued until the reaper of
death relieved her sufferings, on Wednesday night, when the loved one bid adieu
to father, mother, sisters, friends, and passed over the river.
The untimely taking away was a sudden shock to her
parents and other friends, who are left to mourn for a kindly soul whom they
had learned to love in life.
Miss Templin was born at Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, March
31, 1873.She was therefore 26 years of
age at the time of her death.For a year
past she has been employed as stenographer with a prominent firm in Seattle, which
position she relinquished temporarily on account of ill health, when she
returned to Fairhaven over three weeks ago.In her line of work she was far above the average, while in acts of
kindness and gentleness to others she had few equals.Miss Templin’s
funeral will take place this afternoon at 4 o’clock from the home of her
parents, on Fourteenth street, Rev. F.S. Wright, of the M.E. Church, officiating.The
remains will be taken on the street car to Bay View cemetery for burial.
Besides a father and mother, deceased leaves three
sisters, Sadie, Ella and Mary, all of whom are at home, and one brother, Frank,
who is now in Iowa.

OF ANNA TEMPLIN
The Newton Record Thursday, September 14,
Sudden Death of Anna
A telegram brought to Mr.
and Mrs. A.(bram) Carrier the sad news of the death
of their granddaughter, Miss Anna Templin, which occurred at the home of her
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Templin, at Fairhaven, Was., on Wednesday evening
of last week. The news was a great shock to Mr. and Mrs. Carrier, being so
unexpected, Mrs. Carrier having left Fairhaven only a couple of weeks ago, Anna
then being in the best of health. Her death was the result of a surgical
operation. She was twenty-six years of age, the eldest daughter of her parents.
Besides her relatives here she has a large number of Newton friends, who
learned to love the bright and happy hearted girl during visits here, and who
are deeply grieved over her sudden death. She leaves three sisters and one
brother, Frank, the latter now in Newton having returned
with his grandmother recently to spend the winter here.
