Mrs. Eleanor Elizabeth Nye, widow of German M. Nye, died at 11 o’clock Monday evening, Sept. 19, at her home two miles south of South Cortland. She had been in usual health all that day and had spent a very pleasant evening with her daughter who was home for a few weeks and a niece, and between 9 and 10 o’clock retired to her room. Scarcely was her door closed when her daughter thought she heard a faint call from her mother’s room and went to see what was wanted. She was surprised to find Mrs. Nye on the floor in a half fainting condition. Quickly she called for held and Mrs. Nye was placed upon a bed and restoratives and stimulants were made use while a messenger hastened to Cortland at full speed for a physician. After a few minutes the heart, which was the seat of the difficulty, began working easier, but was weak and kept growing weaker, though the stricken woman was conscious till almost the end. At about 11 o’clock just as the physician arrived she had a sinking spell from which she did not recover and her breathing ceased within a few minutes.

Her sudden death was of course a great shock to her relatives and friends who had not thought of her being in anything except good health. The cause of her decease is attributed to heart failure.

Mrs. Nye was born in Dryden, Aug. 5, 1843, her maiden name being Jameson. In early years he moved with her parents to Virgil and there in November, 1863 she was married to German M. Nye, who died Jan. 28, 1902. Her home since her marriage has always been the house where she died, two miles south of South Cortland.

Eight children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Nye, four of who died in childhood. The four surviving ones are J. G. Nye of McLean, Zera T. Nye of Homer, Miss Minnie L. Nye of Boston and William B. Nye who conducts the farm at home. One brother and one sister also survive, John Jameson of Dryden. For more than twenty-five years Mrs. Nye had been a consistent and faithful member of the First Baptist church of Cortland.

The funeral was held Thursday at 1 o’clock at the house and was conducted by her pastor, Rev. W. J. Howell. The floral offerings were remarkably numerous and beautiful. The bearers were the three sons of deceased and a nephew, Frank E. Davis of Homer. The burial was in the Cortland Rural cemetery.
