I found a cemetery index at the Museum and she was hit by a car in 1919.The Gooding Leader
of Aug 7th 1919 states"Mrs. Bly of this city, who resides on South Idaho street, was
seriously injured in an auto accident Saturday evening. As she was crossing Main street
near the carnaval grounds, she was struck by an auto driven my Virgil Kelly. She was
dragged some distance and suffered cuts about the head and severly brusied about the hips.
No bones were broken, but she has not become rational and because of the fact that she is
past sixty years of age, the outcome of her injuries are as yet uncertain."
I din't find reference to her death for the rest of the year, but I could of missed
it. I will try and check with the cemetery records to see if they have a death date. She
is buried in Elmwood.
