Nellie Campbell

Death of Mrs. Eastburn.
Mrs. D. B. Eastburn, whose dangerous illness we have mentioned frequently of late, died this morning at 9 o'clock of puerperal fever at the residence on Portage avenue, opposite Chapin Place. She had been sick but little more than a week, and although during that time she received all the attention that medical skill, and the loving care that friends could give, death gained the mastery.

Mrs. Eastburn's maiden name was Nellie Campbell. She was the daughter of Mr. S. A. Campbell, an old resident of Porter county, near Valparaiso, this state, and was born their November 9th, 1859, being little more than 24 years old at the time of her death. She was married September 15th, 1880, to Mr. David B. Eastburn, then residing at Fowler, Ind., and removed to this city two years ago, her husband being engaged as manager of the Marvin Campbell hardware establishment. They built a handsome cottage on Portage avenue the past summer and moved into it but a few months ago. The deceased was possessed of a lovely disposition, and had a wide circle of devoted friends. She was an earnest christian and a member of the First M. E. church of this city. She leaves to mourn her early death besides a husband and two children, one aged two years, the other a babe eight days old, a father, step mother, and three brothers, Hon. Marvin Campbell and Myron Campbell, of this city, and Otto Campbell, of Valparaiso. The friends have the sympathy of all in their deep affliction.

The funeral services will be held at the residence to-morrow afternoon at 3 o'clock, conducted by Rev. W. H. Hickman, pastor of the First M. E. church. The remains will be taken to Valparaiso on the 7 o'clock train Friday morning over the Grand Trunk road for interment in the family burying ground on her father's farm. -- South Bend Tribune.
