Sunday’s Obituary: Mrs. Allen Wright [nee Ballard]

Bulletin, The | Perry, Iowa | 
Thursday, August 13, 1914 | Page 1
So many women's identites were lost in obituaries in the early 1900s.  Hopefully this will bring some recognition to what apparently was a short life: "Body of Young Matron brought from St. Paul This Morning - Services at Ballard Home".

The burial was at Violet Hill Cemetery in Perry, Dallas County, Iowa.
The obituary is a clip from The Bulletin, Perry, Iowa, Thursday, August 13, 1914, with recognition to NewspaperArchive.com.

"The funeral of Mrs. Allen Wright, whose death occurred at her home in St. Paul early Monday morning, will be held at the residence of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Ballard, on North Second street tomorrow afternoonat 3:30.  The services will be conducted by Rev. J. M. Williams, pastor of the First Methodist church, and interment will be made at Violet Hill Cemetery."
