Mrs. Barnum had been quite well until this morning when she complained of feeling ill. It was not thought that her indisposition was anything serious but a sudden attack ended in her death which was a pronounced and painful shock to all who enjoyed the pleasure of her acquaintance. Mrs. Barnum was a resident of Naugatuck all her life. For years she was active in DAR and Women's Study club affairs. She leaves two sons, Earl M. Barnum of Naugatuck and Frederick W.
