Pioneer Resident died early this morning
At her home on North Bosque, Mrs. El Ditto, aged 70 years , died this morning at 2 o’clock, after a brief illness. Funeral arrangements have not yet been made, these being held in abeyance until her sons can be heard from.
The death of Mrs. Ditto today removes from this life one of McLennan county’s pioneer residents. She had lived in the community where she died since 1856, fifty-eight years, and she had a host of friends and acquaintances throughout the county. Mrs. Ditto was a most earnest and sincere Christian and she departed this life well prepared to meet her God.
Besides her husband , Eli Ditto, she is survived by three sons, Theodore, Frank , and Ed Ditto, who live in Hall county, a sister Mrs. Henrietta Sparks, and a niece Mrs. J. W. Downs, both of Waco, a brother, W. T. McCann at San Paulo, Brazil and a sister Mrs. B. L. Kennedy at China Springs. All of these have the sincere sympathy of many in their bereavement.
