Mrs. Denver Woodruff Dies Thursday Night at Indianapolis, Ind.

Mrs. Denver Woodruff, former Petoskey young woman, died last night at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, following a month's serious illness. Mrs. Woodruff, formerly Miss Alice Adams, had been in poor health several years.

Mrs. Woodruff came to Petoskey about 18 years ago, following the death of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Adams, and made her home with her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Adams, Madison street.

She graduated from Petoskey high school and for some time held a position with the Michigan Bell Telephone company. She was a popular member of the younger social group, a member of the Christian church and Sunday school, enjoying a wide circle of friends.

She was married to Denver Woodruff in 1922 and eight years ago they went to Louisville and later to Indianapolis where Mr. Woodruff has been stationed by the Blackmor Pump company.

Surviving her are the husband, one daughter, Shirley Ann; one sister, Ruth, of Detroit; two brothers, Charles and Edward Adams, of Lincoln, Nebraska; her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Adams, Petoskey.

The body is to be brought to Petoskey for the funeral and burial. Arrangements for the service are expected to be completed tomorrow.
