Blanche Dick
One of the most sudden and pathetic deaths that has shocked this community in many years, occurred with the announcement of the untimely demise of Miss Blanche Dick, aged 23 years, a teacher In the fifth grade of the West Side school In this city, from a private sanitarium at Columbus last Tuesday afternoon. The case is one of the saddest that has ever been chronicled in the county. Within the last few weeks relatives and friends of the deceased girl had noticed that at times she acted in a peculiar manner, and last week her mind became badly affected, causing deep anxiety so fast did her mental trouble grow, Friday night she became decidedly worse and Saturday morning, accompanied by her father, F. M. Dick, of Union township, she was taken to a private sanitarium at Columbus for treatment. Her case seems to have been beyond all earthly aid, and the end came as stated. Miss Dick was one of the most popular teachers in our schools, and had been re-employed for the coming term of school. Wm. C. Dick, of the J. A. Roemer Co., the well known clothing house, is a half brother of the deceased girl. The remains were brought to this city Wednesday night and taken to the home of her parents near Mendon, where funeral services will be held this afternoon. The remains will be brought to Celina for interment, and if the weather will permit the casket will be opened at North Grove to allow her pupils and friends in this city to look upon her face once more. Should the weather be inclement her remains will be brought to St. Paul's M. E. Church for that purpose. The time for arrival here is not definitely known, but will be about 3:00 o'clock.
