The sad news of the death of Mrs Byron Lyke, at Lockwood hospital, Petoskey,
reached here Monday, death occurring at 3 o'clock Monday morning. Mrs Lyke
had been a sufferer for some time, and last week she was taken to the hospital
at Petoskey, in hopes that an operation would restore her to health, but
although she rallied nicely from the operation, the shock proved too great and
Sunday she began to fail rapidly. Mrs Lyke leaves a husband and two daughters,
besides a large circle of friends, to mourn her loss. The funeral will be
held Wednesday at 2 p.m. from the Methodist church.

afternoon. The Firemen attended in a body, and the Eastern Star, of which
order Mrs Lyke was a member, were out in full force to pay their well-beloved
sister. Rev Grozenbaugh spoke words of comfort to the ones who are left to
morn, and the coffin was completely covered with floral offerings.
