"Cape Vincent Eagle" [Cape Vincent, Jefferson Co., NY], Thursday, 19 Aug 1915:

Passes Away After Undergoing An
Operation for Appendicitis

The announcement of the death of Miss Edna Marion Dezengremel, eldest daughter of the late Frank and Mrs. Harriet Dezengremel, which occurred at the Sisters' hospital, Watertown, Saturday afternoon, was received with profound sorrow by the people of Cape Vincent and vicinity. Death followed an operation for appendicitis. Miss Dezengremel was first stricken with the disease on Monday, July 12, and it was the opinion of the physicians in charge that her condition was too serious to safely permit of an operation. Her condition, however, improved very much during the following five days, and it was confidently hoped that she might be restored to health without an operation. The attending physician recommended a change, however, in view of her nervous condition, and three weeks ago she left with a few friends and the members of her family for a cottage on Point Salubrious. She apparently was improving rapidly after the removal to the cottage. On Saturday, July 31, Miss Dezengremel was suddenly taken with a second attack and she was hurried in an automobile to Watertown. Upon arrival at the family home, 903 Boyd street, a physician was immediately summoned. After a few hour at her home, she was removed to St. Joachim's hospital.

A seemingly successful operation was performed by Dr. F. R. Calkins, assisted by Dr. N. L. Hawkins, on Wednesday, August 1. Miss Dezengremel began to improve following the operation but poisoning set in Thursday, and she became worse. A consultation of doctors was held early Saturday morning, but nothing could be done to save her and she passed away Saturday afternoon at 3.

Miss Dezengremel, who was 31 years of age, was born at Maple Grove, Cape Vincent, on April 19, 1884. Her father, Frank Dezengremel, passed away in Watertown, ten months ago. The Dezengremels made their winter home in that city and their summer home at Cape Vincent, but for the past two years they had been living the year around in Watertown. Miss Dezengremel spent all of her early life in this village. She was educated in the public school here and was graduated from the Cape Vincent High school.

Miss Dezengremel was a member of St. John's Episcopal church and for a number of years was the librarian of the Sunday school connected with that church. She was a member of the Daughters of the King of Cape Vincent, and of the LeRay de Chaumont Chapter, D. A. R., of Watertown.

Miss Dezengremel was to have been married to Edwin M. Grudger, of Texas, next November.

She is survived by her mother and one sister, Miss Blanche Dezengremel, who have unstinted sympathy because of the great affliction they have sustained.

The remains were brought to the Cape on the 1:15 o'clock train Tuesday and taken to St. John's church, where the funeral services were conducted by the rector, the Rev. Chas. T. Raynor. Interment was made in Riverside cemetery. The floral offerings were very beautiful. The bearers consisted of Harry Vincent, Dr. Bentley, Norman Hinckley, Leon Peo, F. W. Sacket and Mr. Boyd.
