We were grieved to hear of the death of Grandma Selby. She had many friends in this community who mourn her loss and Mr. and Mrs. Smith have the sympathy of all their neighbors in their affliction.

Mrs. Lydia Selby died at the home of her daughter Mrs. A. B. Smith, Utica, Sunday morning, from consumption and the infirmities of age, being in her 80th year at teh time of her death.

Grandma Selby made her home with her daughter and son-in-law for a number of years previous to her death, and had many warm friends in the neighborhood where they lived who heard with profound sorrow that the end had come, though to her it was a relief from long suffering.

Funeral was held Monday, interment being made in the Utica cemeter. Rev. J. N. E. Wilson conducted the service.

The five children who were still living at the time of their parents death were Thomas, Mrs. Hanna Rist, Nicholas, Mrs. Mary Ann McPherson,
and Mrs. Martha Smith.

Three children, Sarah, William, and John preceded them in death.
