Mrs. Addie Daggett Gerry
The funeral of Mrs. Addie Daggett Gerry was held from her late residence on Highland Avenue, June 13, at 2 p. m.. The service was conducted by the Rev. F. E. Smith of the Methodist church, and was appropriate and impressive.
Mrs. Gerry was born in Dexter and the years of her child, and maidenhood were spent with her parents on a farm.
She was married September 6, 1897, to Wilbur C. Gerry, also of Dexter. For twenty years they lived pleasantly and profitable at their farm home, after which they moved to the village where they have since resided. Mrs. Gerry was a woman of irreproachable character, and stood firmly at all times for right and justice. She was gentle, retiring and home-loving by nature and begrudged neither the labor or time, required to render her home always immaculate and in perfect order. She had been in failing health for a year previous to her death and suffered much during the past month, but when the end came ---it came so quietly,---so peacefully, that the faithful watchers at her side could but feel she merely breathe out of the temporal into the eternal.
There are, to mourn her loss, her devoted husband, and one sister, Mrs. Lettie Harling, of Lowell, Mass, besides her brother, Nathan L. Daggett, and family of Dexter another brother, Charles Daggett, of Lowell, Mass., also her neighbors and friends. Faithful wife and loving sister.
Valued neighbor, loyal friend
There are those whose hearts will
Miss you sadly to the, end.
But this thought is rich with comfort,
You are free from mortal pain.
And the years----pass so swiftly.
We shall meet you soon again.
For you've simply passed from earth life---
From its labor. care. and gloom,
To a higher, bigger service,
In the Master's upper room.
