Wallowa, Oregon
Miss Gladys Wiley

Wallowa, Oct. 18 –Miss Gladys Wiley, aged 22 years, daughter of E. L. Wiley, died of acute appendicitis, Tuesday evening about 9 o’clock, at the Wallowa hospital. She submitted to an operation Saturday evening and the conditions were found to be so bad that there was little chance of saving her life, yet she rallied and for a day or two hope was entertained by the relatives and many friends. A turn for the worse came yesterday afternoon and she sank rapidly until the end came.

Gladys was greatly beloved by all who knew her and the entire community is shrouded in gloom at her untimely death, and every heart sympathizes with the bereaved father and other relatives.

Besides her father she leaves a sister, Mrs. Lena Maxwell, and two brothers, Leslie and Floyd. The brothers are in the East but are hurrying here and until they arrive the exact hour of the funeral will not be fixed, but it probably will be held Thursday afternoon.
