From Our Wurtsboro Correspondent
Angeline Holmes, wife of Russell Helm, died Jan. 10th, 1899, at Denver, Col. She was born at Ellenville, N.Y., Feb. 12, 1855, and soon after her birth her parents removed to Wurtsboro. She was married to Russell Helm about twenty years ago. They made Wurtsboro their home, and little occurred to mar their happiness until about two years ago, when the heavy hand of a dreaded and wasting disease fell upon the wife and mother of this home. By the advice of her physician she went to Colorado in August, 1897, but contrary to a cherished hope of recovered health the result was as above stated.
Mrs. Helm was a devout christian, which fact was manifested in her daily life and in her patient endurance of her affliction. Early in life she identified herself with the M. E. Church of Wurtsboro, in the welfare and work of which she always took a deep and active interest. In the Ladies' Aid Society and in other church relations she will be seriously missed, but in none of them more than in the Sunday School, where for years past she has been one of the most faithful and zealous of members, both as scholar and teacher. In the home, a term which to this family especially was one of much significance, she was a bright and shining light, a loving and devoted wife and mother.
Mrs. Helm leaves to mourn her death a husband and two sons, Lee and Charles; also a father, mother, three sisters and two brothers, all residing in the West. There are besides a host of sorrowing friends and neighbors.
Burial was in Sylvan Cemetery.
