Widow of Former Banking Expert
Expires Unexpectedly
at Apartments in Colonnade.
          Mrs. Laura F. H. Lynch , widow of the late Augustus D. Lynch, died early yesterday at her apartments in the Colonnade after an illness of a few days.  She had not been in robust health for some time, but though the recent severe attack of her ailment was known to be serious a fatal result was not anticipated, and her death was unexpected.  Its immediate cause was uremic poisoning.
          Mrs. Lynch was born in Brookville, Ind., daughter of the late  John W. Hitt.  After her marriage, which united two old and well-known families of the state, she lived for some years in Shelbyville.  Later she came with her husband to Indianapolis, which was their home until 1887, when they removed to Washington, D. C., and resided until the death, several years ago, of Mr. Lynch, who was a banking expert, his work in the examination of banks having been under the direction of the controller of the currency.  Mrs. Lynch came to Indianapolis in the fall to spend the winter near relatives and old friends.  Surviving members of the family are her daughter,  Mrs. Gertrude Lynch Springer, wife of the  Rev. Ruter W. Springer, a chaplain in the army, now stationed at Fort Caswell, N. C., and her brothers,  Maj. W. F. and George C. Hitt of Indianapolis. The date of the funeral, which will be held at the home of  George C. Hitt, will not be fixed until the time of Mrs. Springer's arrival is known.
