           Mrs. Carrie Hemphill Fightmaster, wife of  William Fightmaster, and well known in Shelbyville and Shelby county, where she was born and reared, died Monday at her home 2518 north Harding street, Indianapolis.  Her death was suddenly and it was due to heart failure.
          She was born in Shelby county fifty-eight years ago and resided in the county and in Shelbyville until about ten years ago when the family moved to Indianapolis.  She had always maintained her associations with friends here and frequently visited in this city.  Her death is a great shock to the family and to the many friends.
