Birth: Sep. 17, 1854
Lebanon County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Apr. 10, 1939
Palmyra
Lebanon County
Pennsylvania, USA

Mrs. Fanny Baum, aged 81, widow of Henry Baum, of Hetrick Avenue and West Cherry Streets, Palmyra, died Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at her home. Death, from complications, followed an illness which kept her bedfast for eight days. Because of a fall last August which confined her to the hospital for a number of weeks, she was forced to remain in a wheel chair. Despite this affliction she always maintained a cheerful disposition. She was born in Heidelberg Township, a daughter of the late Rev. Samuel and Lydia Dissinger Books. She was a resident of Palmyra for twenty-five years, and prior to that lived in the vicinity of Hershey. Mrs. Baum was a member of the Brethren in Christ Church, Palmyra, for sixty years. The survivors are four sons and two daughters, Jacob, at home; Mrs. David Hitz, of Elizabethtown; Harry, of Kingsley, Iowa; Mrs. Jacob W, Baum, Palmyra; Paul, of Denver, Colorado; and Elmer of Middletown. Fourteen grandchildren and four great grandchildren also survive. She was the last of her immediate family. Her husband died seven years ago. [ Lebanon Daily News, April 11, 1939, Page 8]
