MRS. FORSTNER DIES SUDDENLY -- Resident of Salem for Half Century Is Found Dead in Her Bed
Mrs. Louisa Forstner, a resident of Salem for half a century, was found dead in bed yesterday morning at about 1 o'clock by relatives. She lived alone over her store property at 265 North Commercial street. Mrs. Forstner was 75 years old. 
On Monday night some of her relatives visited with Mrs. Forstner and left her apparently in good health and spirits. She retired and it is thought that she passed away quietly at about 10 o'clock Monday night. 
She had a stroke of paralysis about two years ago. Mrs. Forstner was the widow of Benjamin Forstner who was a pioneer gunsmith of Salem. He patented the Forstner kit, which still bears his name. Mrs. Forstner owned two adjacent buildings on North Commercial street and occupied a room in one of them, over Dr. S. C. Stone's drug store. 
Surviving her are a sister, Mrs. John Knight of Portland, and a brother, Adam Snyder of 1160 Gaines street. She also leaves a foster daughter, Mrs. Frank Tyler. Mr. Tyler will have charge of the funeral arrangements. 
The body is at the chapel of Webb & Clough and the funeral announcements will be made later.
