MRS. ANGELINE ARCHBOLD DIES - Well-Known Resident of Decatur Dies of Pneumonia After Long Illness
Death claimed Mrs. Angeline Archbold, 79, life-long resident of this city and mother of Dr. Roy Archbold, at 5 o'clock this morning, at the Adams County Memorial hospital. Pneumonia was given as the direct cause of death, following injuries which she suffered when she fell and fractured her hip sometime ago.
About eight years ago, Mrs. Archbold fell and fractured her hip. She recovered from this injury and on May 16, 1926, fell a second time and encountered a more serious fracture. She was removed to the hospital, at which place she has been a patient for about a year. Pneumonia developed a few days ago and, last Sunday, she sank into a state of coma and gradually grew weaker until death resulted this morning.
Mrs. Archbold was one of the well known women of this city. She was born in Adams county on February 16, 1848, the daughter of Thomas and Penelope Johnson Fisher. On August 6, 1871, she was united in marriage to James T. Archbold, whose death occurred in 1904. To this union were born two children, Ada , who died in infancy, and Dr. Roy Archbold, well-known dentist of this city. The deceased was a member of the Rebekah and Eastern Star lodges and the First Methodist church of this city.
Surviving besides the son Dr. Roy Archbold, are two grandchildren, Richard Archbold, of Toledo , Ohio , and Miss Josephine Archbold, of this city. One brother, Arthur M. Fisher, of this city, and a half brother, Thomas Bixler of Muncie , also survive.
The body will be removed to the home of her son this afternoon, at which place she made her home before being confined to the hospital. Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon at the Archbold home, the Rev. Ross W. Stoakes, pastor of the Methodist church, officiating. Burial will be made in Maplewood cemetery.
