Word was received late yesterday afternoon that Mrs. C.A. Digness, wife of one of our oldest pioneers. Last fall Mrs. Digness complained some of having a bad ear ache but she bravely warded it off, and was feeling quite well until a few day before her death, when she again became afflicted with the same trouble and shortly passed away. It was found that she was troubled with an abscess in the head. Mrs. Digness first came to this community in 1883, a short time after her husband, where she resided until a year ago when she and her husband moved to Grand Forks to enjoy the savings of their hard and zealous work. At the time she was about 46 years old, 22 years of which she spent in this locality. She leaves behind to mourn her loss a loving husband and four lonely children, the youngest of which is a son about 11 years old. The remains will be brought to Hatton for services Sunday afternoon at the Synod church.
