Obituary from Lottie Fergus Caven album:

"CAVEN

The message telling of the death of Mrs. Foster I. Caven at the Memorial hospital in Piqua Friday evening was a shock to her many friends in this city. Death came at six o'clock Firday evening, February 8, after a short illness. Her baby's death preceeded the mother's by a few hours. Before her marriage to Foster Caven, September 3, 1915, she was Miss Victorene Redinbo, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. O. Redinbo. She was born in Orange township, October 15, 1895. She was a graduate of the Orange township school and attended the Sidney High School, failing health forcing her to discontinue her studies and keeping her from graduating with the class of 1912. Besides her husband, a sister, Mrs. Albert Wheaton, brother, Frank Redinbo, father, mother and husband survive her. The funeral services were held at the M. E. church at Fletcher Monday afternoon at one-thirty conducted by Rev. J. S. Altman, pastor of the Greene street M. E. church of Piqua, of which Mrs. Caven was a faithful and active member. She leaves a wide circle of friends who deeply mourn her sudden and unexpected death."
