Death Notices from 1934

Heart trouble aggravated by shock brought on when he vainly attempted to save his wife from flames a week ago Saturday night claimed the life of Judge E.S.B. Sutton, 79-year-old dean of Sault Ste. Marie attorneys. Death came almost exactly a week after the death of Mrs. Sutton, 72. Mrs. Sutton’s clothes caught fire from a heating plate and Judge Sutton was ill in bed from heart trouble. Both collapsed in an effort to extinguish the blaze. Mrs. Sutton died from burns 12 hours later. (Battle Creek Enquirer, February 12, 1934)
