Bear, passed away Saturday night at the home of her sister, Mrs. Gus Brackett, 220 South Fifth street, after an illness of over fifteen years, much of which time she was able to get about only by the use of a wheel chair. She was always very patient and optomistic, ever living with the hope that she would be restored to health. Recently she begun [sic] to fail rapidly and Mr. Bear, who is employed in Sonora, Mexico was sent for and came to Raton to be with her during her last days. She has been the object of tender care and consideration by members of her family. She was a daughter of Mr. George D. Littrell, a pioneer resident of Colfax county where Mrs. Bear was born. She had reached the age of 45 years at the time of her passing. Her husband, father and two sisters, Mrs. Gus Brackett, of Raton; Mrs. Ralph Rogers, of Maxwell and one brother, F. E.
