Wedding dress to burial shroud

From the Chicago Daily Tribune
Published January 30, 1919

A woman became suicidal after her husband-to-be failed to follow through with his commitment. She left behind a note expressing her wish to have her bridal gown become her death shroud. Despite searches, the would-be bride was not found following her disappearance. Further research did not produce any leads as to whether she followed through with her suicide or if she simply cleared her head and returned some time later.
