LaRoux Hildinger Baird
One of the saddest deaths that has occurred in Portsmouth in months was that of Mrs. Thomas Baird, wife of a trusted employee of the Portsmouth Steel company, at Hempstead hospital Sunday morning. Troubled with quincy recently, Mrs. Baird thought to avoid a recurrence and to that end determined to have her tonsils removed. Kissing her children goodbye at 8 o’clock, she smilingly entered an automobile accompanied by her husband and _____ in what was to prove a ride to her death, for two hours later she was a corpse, sleeping away while under the anaesthia , her heart failing before the operation could proceed. The pathetic death, moved the doctors and nurses to tears and relatives and friends upon learning of it were shocked beyond measure.
Mrs. La Rux Hildinger Baird was born in Du Bois, Pa., April 11, She was one of two children of John J. and Jennie Hildinger. Her mother dying when she was yet a small girl. Her father John J. Hildinger was a prominent citizen and merchant of McKeesport, Pa., and died from injuries received in an automobile accident last July near Bedford, Pa., when a machine in which he was riding skidded and killed five of the 8 passengers in the car. Mrs. Baird was a graduate of the McKeesport, Pa., High school and for some years was quite active in church and social life in that city. On the 5th day of June she was united in marriage to Thomas Baird as a result of their school day courtship. To them were born two children both of whom survive, Thomas Douglas, age six, and John J., age five. About four years ago they moved from McKeesport to this city and have since lived in their own home at Grandview avenue. She is also survived by her sister, Miss Virginia Hildinger who since the death of her father and since this last July has been making her home here. Virginia is now the only surviving member of that once happy family. The deceased was a member of Manly M. E. church of this city. She was a kind and obliging sister, a loving and dutiful wife, and a fond and affectionate mother. Mrs. Baird was a splendid type of Christian womanhood. The family certainly has the sympathy of the entire community in this their hour of bereavement. Short funeral services will be held at the residence this evening at p.m. Rev. Gilliland of the Manly M. E. church will officiate. The funeral will take place Wednesday afternoon at the home of an uncle, Mr. Edward Farr at Du Bois, Pa.
