Lida Zigler, thirty-nine years old, died Monday evening at six at the home of her sister-in-law (sic), Mrs. Joseph Toney, 207 north Oak street, after an extended illness. Two brothers and two sisters survive. Funeral services were held from the home of Mrs. Toney Wednesday afternoon at two-thirty with burial in Masonic cemetery. Rev. F.B. Solin had charge of the services.

Note: Lida’s given name as used in early records was Lydia. She did not die at the home of a sister-in-law, but rather at her sister Emma Sering Toney’s home. The name from the second marriage has different spellings, including Zigler, Ziegler and Zeigler.  Her date of death was August 21, 1916.
