She Was 21 Years of Age and Was to Have Been Married
Next December to Young Man from Texas

As a result of poisoning that sent in after an operation for appendicitis, Miss Edna Marion Dezengremel, aged 31 years, passed away at St. Joachim's hospital, late Saturday afternoon. Miss Dezengremel was taken will with appendicitis on Monday, July 12, and was brought immediately to the City hospital, but due to her serious condition and operation could not be performed.

After remaining in the hospital for five days her condition grew somewhat improved, and it was thought that she might recover without the necessity of 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 this city. Upon arrival at the family home, 903 Boyd street, a physician was immediately summoned. After a few hours at her home, the girl 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, Aug. 11. 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, However, nothing could be done to save her, and she passed away Saturday afternoon at 3. The death was a great blow to the family and friends, for Miss Dezengremel was always in the best of health, being seriously ill upon only one other occasion during her life. She was the picture of perfect health at all times.

Miss Dezengremel was to have been married to Edwin M. Gudger of Texas next December. They were planning to make their future home in North Carolina.

Miss Dezengremel was born at Maple Grove, Cape Vincent, the daughter of the late Frank and Harriet Crevolin Dezengremel, on April 19, 1884. Her father, frank Dezengremel, passed away in this city, ten months ago. The Dezengremels made their winter home in this city, and their summer home at Cape Vincent. Miss Dezengremel spent all of her early life in Cape Vincent. She was educated in the public schools there and graduated from the Cape Vincent High school. She was an attendant at the Lady Jane grey school at Binghamton, New York, but was forced to leave before graduation, due to an overworked, run down condition. This illness was the only other illness that Miss Dezengremel ever experienced.

She was one of the leaders of the younger set in Cape Vincent. She was a member of the St. John's Episcopal church of Cape Vincent, and was librarian for a number of years of the St. John's Sunday school. She was a member of the Daughters of the King of Cape Vincent and of the LeRay de Chaumont Chapter, D. A. R., of this city.

She had been employed since the opening of the Y. M. C. A. building as assistant to Dr. W. C. Smith, a dentist in the building.

She is survived by her mother, and one sister, Harriet Blanche Dezengremel, who graduated from Watertown High school last June.

The funeral services will be held Tuesday at 1:30 at St. John's Episcopal church of Cape Vincent, shortly after the arrival of the noon train. Interment will be made in the family plot at Cape Vincent cemetery.
