Kennett Square, Jan 26 --Miss Marie Edith Wickersham, daughter of the late Joseph (sic) and Lydia Garretson Wickersham, died at 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday night at the home of her cousins, Eva W. and Florence N. Cleaver, South Broad street, after an illness of several years.
Miss Wickersham, who was in her 77th year, moved into our borough in 1930, and for the last two years her hearing and sight were almost gone. She very much felt the loss of her sight and hearing as she was a lover of music and good books, having been a teacher and a disciplinarian beyond the average.
She was the last of her family, her sisters, Ruthanna and Ella, and a brother Robert, having passed away.
The funeral will take place from the home of her cousin, Robert Israel Garretson, at Flora Dale, Adams county, on Saturday, with interment in Menallen Friends Cemetery.
