MRS. JULIA STICKNEY DIES
WOMAN 94, CAME TO COUNTY IN 1865
Old Age is Cause of Death - Three Children Survive
Funeral at Baptist Church Sunday
Mrs. Julia A. Stickney, who was almost 94 years old, died at 1:55 o'clock this morning at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Rosine Crocker, of 322 West Central Avenue. Death was due to old age. She had been an invalid for four years, and had been confined to her bed for two years. She had failed very rapidly for the last three or four weeks.
Mrs. Stickney had resided in Jasper County since 1865 and in Carthage since 1871. She was born June 6, 1821 in Holmes County, Ohio. March 15, 1838 she was married to Dr. D.B. Stickney.
On account of the husband's health they later came west, settling first in Kansas, where they resided a short time before coming to this county. They resided on a farm near Alba. Dr. Stickney was a practicing physician.
Dr. Stickney died in 1870, and Mrs. Stickney with her family soon moved to Carthage where she had resided ever since. She had made her home with Mrs. Crocker for 14 years.
Mrs. Stickney was the mother of eight children, three of whom survive. Besides Mrs. Crocker, the surviving children are;
C.B. Stickney and Robert T. Stickney, both of this city.
The late Mrs. S.S. Riley, who formerly resided in Carthage also was a daughter.
Mrs. Stickney's father, Rev. Elijah Purdy, was a Baptist minister. Mrs. Stickney was the oldest of a family of ten children. One sister and three brothers survive, all living in Ohio.
Thirteen grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild also survive.
Mrs. Stickney became a member of a Baptist church when she was a young girl. In 1871 or 1872 she became a member of the Baptist church of this city, and until her health became too poor she was one of the most active and devoted members of that institution. It was very rare that she missed a church service when she was able to be there. She was the oldest member of that church, and there was only one other person who had been a member there longer that she. During her long sickness she took a live interest in the affairs of the church and its work and frequently asked about matters pertaining to it. Devotion and faithfulness to her church were characteristics of hers.
Through her exemplary character, Mrs. Stickney won the high esteem of the many persons by whom she was known. The same faithfulness and devotion that characterized her in the church was equally as clearly expressed in her domestic life. Despite her age, her mind was perfectly clear in her final illness.
Funeral services were conducted at the Baptist Church
Rev. John W.T. Givens, pastor of that church officiated.
