UPDATE: Husband says Benton County woman not killed by cow

Posted:
BENTON COUNTY (KWWL) -

The husband of a Benton County woman that was reportedly killed after she was attacked by a cow on Saturday, says his wife actually died of a stroke.

James Fee says his wife Jean was in their farm pasture near Urbana when she had a massive stroke and aneurysm.  He says she died immediately and showed no signs of being hurt by the cow.

Originally it had been reported by the Benton County Sheriff's Office that Fee was attacked by the cow.

Fee was with her two-year-old grandson at the time.  He was not hurt.

James Fee says cows are safe animals and people should not be afraid to take their children around them.

A "Celebration of Life" for Jeanne Fee is Friday at 7:00 p.m. at Teahen Funeral Home in Cedar Rapids.
