Mary Etta Pilkington Croyle
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 16, 1877
Death: Jan. 14, 1925



The body of Mrs. Frank C. Croyle will be taken from her home 111 Second street, to St. Paul's Episcopal church Saturday morning, and the funeral service held at 2:30 in the afternoon. Rev. Franklin T. Eastment will have charge. Burial will be made in the Philipsburg cemetery.

Mrs. Croyle's death, caused by pernicious anemia, occurred at the Philipsburg State hospital at 11:30 Wednesday morning, Jan. 14th. Blood transfusion treatment had been administered after her admission to the hospital and at an earlier state of her illness blood transfusion had been resorted to but the treatments failed to check the ravages of the malady. Her illness covered a period of more than six months.

Mr.s Croyle, whose maiden name was Mary Etta Pilkington, was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Pilkington, both deceased. She was born at the old family homestead near Osceola Mills on January 16, 1877. On Dec. 27, 1899 she was united in marriage to Frank C. Croyle, the ceremony performed by the late D.r F.J. Clere, of the Episcopal church, taking place at the family home. The couple, following their marriage, took up housekeeping in Philipsburg, and have continuously resided here.

Devoted to her husband, children and home, Mrs. Croyle was an exemplary type of womanhood who was given and merited the respect of those who knew her. She was a member of St. Paul's church, the Women's Guild and the Women's Auxiliary. Her death has caused grief in her family and keen sorrow in the community.

Besides her husband, one daughter, Miss Bertha, a student at Susquehanna University, and one son, John, aged 11, at home, survive. Three children, Clifford, Madelin and Paul are dead.

Four brothers and five sisters survive, namely, Robert Pilkington, of Belleville, Ill.; Thomas, of Herrin, Ill.; William, of Beckley, W. Va.; John of Osceola Mills; Mrs. George Hartshorne, of Bowsell, Pa.; Mrs. F.M> Fleck, of Altoona; Mrs. John Hagaan, of Singking Valley; Mrs. William Maffet, of Cannonsburg, and Mrs. Martha Burton, Osceola Mills.
