Helen Stanwood, wife of George T. Read, died at her home on Congress Street Monday afternoon, Dec. 2nd, after several months' illness of a complication of diseases. She was born in Gloucester, Mass., Nov. 7, 1853, the daughter of David. W. and Susan Allen Stanwood. In early womanhood she married Mr. Read and came to Belfast, which had since been her home. She is survived by her husband; three sons, Arthur W. of Portland, Clarence E. of Belfast, Norman A. of Portland; one daughter, Miss Louise J., who lives at home; two brothers, Eugene of Gloucester, Addison of Barceloneta, Porto Rico; one sister, Mrs. O. W. Lane of Gloucester, and a step-mother, Mrs. Martha Stanwood of Gloucester. The world is better, brighter and happier for the life of this beautiful woman and the bereaved have the deepest sympathy of all who knew her. In the home life the relationships were ideal and with her close friends only happy memories remain. She was the life of every company and her personal influence was strong and helpful. The funeral took place at her late home Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, her former pastor, Rev. Ashley A. Smith of Bangor, officiating.
