Genevive Foy d; 1922

Second Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James M. Foy Seven Years Old Taken With Sudden Attack of Appendicitis and Operated Upon at Watertown Friday. Remains Laid To Rest In Cemetery at Bryant Tuesday.
The sincere sympathy of the entire community is extended to Mr and Mrs James M. Foy and their two little daughters in the loss of Genevive their 7 year old daughter and sister whose death occurred at Watertown Friday evening, November 17, 1922 at 8:15 o'clock.
Little Genevive first complained of a stomach ache Wednesday morning but after breakfast stated that she was all right and went to school. She did not complain again until after school when she visited her aunt Miss Tressa Kelly. Her condition caused no great alarm and Mr Foy was absent the following day on a business trip to Watertown returning the same evening. The little sufferer gradually grew worse and on Friday morning was taken to a hospital at Watertown and operated upon at once for appendicitis. She rallied for a time but towards evening gradually grew weaker and her spotless soul left the body to return to its Maker in her heavenly home. The sorrowing and loving parent and her aunt Tressa Kelly were at the bedside when the end came. The remains were brought home Saturday evening.
The little girl came to bring sunshine and happiness into the Foy home on Oct 3, 1915, and was truly a joy and to have her so suddenly removed makes the sorrow almost unbearable. She had many little playmates who will also sadly miss her.
Owing to the inability of Grandpa Jas. H. Foy of Fond du Lac, WI to arrive until Monday night, the body was held until Tuesday morning when it was shipped to Bryant where services were held in the Catholic church at 9 o'clock and interment made in St. Mary's cemetery.
Many from here attended the funeral at Bryant also a number from Estelline and Garden City to console and sympathize with the bereaved parents.
