Sudden Death Of Mrs. Jacob Jenkins.
Mrs. L. A. Jenkins, 83, widow of Jacob Jenkins, died suddenly yesterday afternoon about 4.30 at the home of her adopted daughter, Mrs. C. C. Freeland, 11 Fowler avenue. She had been in rather feeble health for some time, but of late she had been considerably better, and was up and about the house yesterday. She complained of not feeling well soon after 4, and seated herself in a chair. It was noticed that she was having a sinking spell and she passed away a few minutes later, seated in the chair, and before medical assistance could be summoned. Mrs Jenkins was born in Southwick, but had lived in Westfield for many years, where she was well known to the older residents of the town. She was one of the oldest members of the Central Baptist Church. The funeral arrangements will be announced later.
