Mrs. George P. Litchfield Succumbs to Illness of Few Weeks Duration. 
Following an illness of only a few weeks, Mrs. Mary Aurelit [sic] Litchfield, died yesterday, at the family residence, 1082 Center street. She was a native born daughter and on of Salem's earliest residents. Mr. and Mrs. Litchfield celebrated their fifty-first wedding anniversary last Christmas day. Mary Aurelia Craft was born in Salem, June 6, 1947. Her parents, Mrs. and Mrs. Charles Craft, were pioneers of 1845. Her father was the first village tanner and auctioned off the logs from which the first houses in Salem were built. Little Mary Aurelia received her education at the old Oregon institute, which later became Willamette university. Her marriage to George P. Litchfield was a union with another Salem pioneer and their golden wedding anniversary a year ago will long be remembered by old time residents. Mrs. Litchfield was a life member of the Methodist church. Eight children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Litchfield. Besides the husband, six children survive. They are Charles L. Litchfield, Portland; Mrs. Alma R. Schindler, Mrs. Cora J. Holman, George F. Litchfield, Mrs. Gertrude L. Scott and Helen Litchfield, all of Salem. The body will lie in state at the Rigdon parlors today until 1 o'clock. The funeral will be held at 2:30 o'clock from the First Methodist church. Rev. R. N. Avison will conduct the services and burial will follow in Odd Fellows cemetery.
