One of Perrysburg's Most Estimable Ladies Passes to the Beyond

On Tuesday, June 13, at 6 o'clock in the evening, occurred the death of Mrs. C. L. Hunt from heart disease. The deceased had been in poor health for the last few years, but only for the past couple of months did her family realize that death was inevitable. She fully realized that she was soon to pass from this earth and talked about it to those who attended her, and with that courage and strength of christian fortitude, which was so marked a trait in her character during her life, expressed herself as being ready to meet her Savior.

Mrs. Hunt, formerly Miss Carrie L. Hagaman, was born at Brighton, Monroe county, N. Y. April 30, 1836. She was married November 15, 1859 to Lewis M. Hunt at which time the young married couple settled in Perrysburg, and has resided here since, Mr. Hunt having died some years ago. At the age of 16 Mrs. Hunt united with the Presbyterian church at her birth place and when coming here was transferred to the First Presbyterian church in which she has been a devoted member ever since.

The deceased leaves a daughter, Harriet, wife of Joseph Brandhuber, who has the sympathy of a large circle of friends in her bereavement.

The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. G. A. Adams at her late home on Front street at 2:30 o'clock, Thursday afternoon. The remains were laid to rest in Fort Meigs cemetery by the side of her husband.
