MRS. ROSA S. HULBERT
WIDOW OF FORMER PASTOR OF FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH DIES
Rosa Stacey Hulbert, widow of the late Dr. Palmer S. Hulbert, former pastor of the First Congregational church, passed away in her 77th year, June 13. Services were held Sunday afternoon at the Euclid avenue church, Rev. Mr. Goff officiating and Dr. R. E. Vale giving the address.
Mrs. Hulbert was born March 11, 1853 at Ovid, N. Y. of English born parents. Her father, Rev. Thomas Stacey, was a Methodist minister for fifty years in New York State and a pioneer whose courage and gentleness balanced perfectly, as they did also in his daughter. At the age of 13, this child was playing the organ in her father’s church and she held many fine organ positions throughout her life: while in Newburyport, Mass., she was responsible for the music of five churches simultaneously, through her playing and the playing or singing of her pupils.
In 1879, she married Palmer S. Hulbert, a Presbyterian minister of Auburn, New York. To them five children were born, of whom four remain, Alfred Roy, lawyer, Dr. Harold Stacey, psychiatrist, Robert Schell, head of the mid-west territory of Oneida Community Ltd., Silver Co., and Dawn Hulbert, musician.
Shortly after coming to Oak Park, Dr. Hulbert died and she then built the home for children, on South Euclid, which she occupied the remainder of her life. Her time was largely given to teaching piano, organ and vocal, and she was well known for her choral direction, having formed and successfully carried on the first chorus for women’s voices in Chicago, and later was the director of several other such choruses here.
