Death Caused by: disease of the knee joint & wrist

Recommended Posts

rolt968

The cause of death in 1917 of the widow of a man I am researching was given as "Disease of knee joint & wrist; heart failure".  The man himself had been killed in action just over a month earlier.

 

He made a will four months before her death appointing his parents executors and trustees for his children and not mentioning his wife. This makes me wonder if he knew that she had a potentially fatal condition. (There might be at least one other reason.)

 

Can anyone suggest what the lady's condition might have been.

Possibly rheumatic heart disease?

Thanks Michelle.

 

I've been looking at the symptoms. It looks very strong possibility.
