Mrs. Sarepta R. Fitch died in Northfield on Monday, after a brief illness. She was born to Calvin & Rhoda (Curtiss) Parker and in Oneida County, New York, November 22nd, 1816, where her early life was spent.
March 31st 1834, she was married to Isaac Fitch, and, after living for some years in Ohio and Illinois, they came to Minnesota in 1874, settling at Hastings, where they continued to reside until the death of Mr. Fitch in 1883. Since that time she has made her home with her children, spending most of the time with Mrs. Alice Kinsey, where her death occurred quite suddenly from a stroke of paralysis.
Only one sister survives her, Mrs. Clarissa Mead, of Ohio. She leaves three sons and two daughters, Edwin Spencer Fitch and Dr. Julius Clinton Fitch, of Hastings, and Andrew P. Fitch, of Olympia, Wash., and Mrs. Laura Little and Mrs. Alice Kinsey, of Northfield.
For years she has been a member of the Presbyterian Church, retaining her membership in this city, and her memory will be cherished by a large circle of friends.
