Michelle Adey-Rickard— They both died in 1921 -Mary Anne died of the following: Obstruction of stomach. Gastroenterostomy, the surgical creation of a connection between the stomach and the jejunum. The operation can sometimes be performed at the same time as a partial gastrectomy (the removal of part of the stomach). I have to wonder if she had Crohn’s disease. I am still trying to figure out the genetic connection. And William died of heart failure. He died before she did. And their daughter Mary Ann Melissa Hurdis died at age 15 of inflammation.
