She retained her faculties unimpaired to the last and few people could converse with more intelligence or interest on the important happenings of our busy, times. Her disposition was sunny and attractive and a large circle
of admiring and appreciative friends and relatives remain to cherish her memory.
The funeral services were conducted at the family residence Sunday afternoon by Rev. David Donovan of the Congregational church, a large number of our citizens being present to pay their last respects to their old friend.
Sleep, genial sister, in thy silent tomb,
Free from Life's fitful fever and the cares of
Fond friends lament thee, and Spring-time
Will bloom above thee, and the hoary pine
Will loving shadow fling above thy lonely pillow;
Tender hands in future years will shed Loves
tribute o'er thy sod
And living Faith will say, with trust sublime,
"Calm she rests at last at home with God."
