Answers Call At 96 Years

Pioneer Lady of Mendocino County
Dies at Guerneville on Friday
of Last Week

Mrs. Elizabeth Standley, relict of
the late Harrison Standley, a pioneer
of this section of the state, died at
the home of her daughter, Mrs. Roller,
at Guerneville on Friday, June 4th,
at the advanced age of 96 years.

The body of the deceased was brought
to Ukiah on last Saturday, and on Sunday
at 2:30 p. m. the funeral services were
held at the Christian church in this city,
of which organization the deceased was a
charter member. A large number of friends
and relatives were in attendance at the last
sad rites, and by their presence attested
to the worth and to the esteem in which
they held their departed loved one.

The deceased was born in North Carolina
on June 27, 1813, and was married to
Harrison Standley in 1836. They emigrated
to California in the early 50's and settled
in Mendocino county, where they resided for
thirty odd years. In 1886 Harrison Standley
was called to his reward, and the widow
has since resided with her children.
She was the mother of fifteen children,
six of whom died in infancy. Those surviving
are John W. Standley, of Humboldt county,
Mrs. Shoemake, of Hopland, Mrs. Roller,
of Guerneville, and Mrs. Hagans, of
Washington. She was the mother of J. M.
(Doc) Standley of this city, who died

Mrs. Standley had led the life of
consistent Christian woman, having
professed the faith sixty seven years
ago. She had lived to see this great
country grow from a wilderness to its
present state of development. She
had lived in the age when the railroad,
the telegraph and other modern necessities
were considered as the dream of a diseased
mind. Her years were many and were rounded
out in peace-she was loved for her own
true, worth and the good that she brought
to those who were fortunate enough to know
her. Long will her memory be cherished by
her friends.
