A complication of diseases following a general break-down due to advancing years, caused the death on Monday, November 18, at 9:30 a.m., of Mrs. Julia L. Angell of this village.
Mrs. Angell was 79 years of age, having passed her birthday just one week before her death. While her health for the past two years had not been of the best, she was able to be about until about eleven weeks ago, when as a result of a hard cold she was threatened with Pneumonia. From that time on she steadily grew worse, being confined to her be most of the time. Her condition was recognized as incurable, and for the past ten days her death has been almost hourly expected. She suffered severe relapses Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings, became unconscious Sunday afternoon, and died Monday morning.
She is survived only by her son, O.T. Angell, and by three grandchildren. The funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock, at the Methodist church, in charge of Rev. J.H. Littell, of Scranton, Pa., and Rev D.L. MacDonald, pastor of the local church.
A large gathering at the church and many beautiful floral offerings were evidence of the many friends she made throughout her long life. The sermon, by Rev. Littell, was a fitting tribute to the beauty of her church and family life, and to its value as an example to others. The burial was in the family lot in Prospect Hill cemetery.
Julia Louisa Trask, the youngest of two daughters of Samuel I. and Lucretia Rose Trask, was born November 10, 1833, at Oxford, Chenango county, N.Y. She was married at the age of 21 years to George W. Angell at Exeter Center, N.Y., November 9, 1854. They moved the following spring to a farm near Guilford Center where they lived continuously for 35 years. In March 1889, They moved to Sidney and made their residence together here at the home of their son until the death of the husband and father, Oct. 12, 1896. Mrs. Angell continued to make her home with her son until her death.
Her early life at Schuyler's lake was that of the pioneers, her immediate ancestors having been among the first settlers there. She attended the Charlottesville Seminary in 1851, and even at that early age she took an active interest in the work of the Methodist church, of which she was a life-long member. Her letters from Charlottesville were indicative of the Christian spirit, which characterized her entire life. She always took the deepest interest in both the church and the Sunday school; was one of the most faithful of the members of the local church; taught a Sunday school class almost continuously for 50 years she resided in Sidney, and was active in departmental church work of all kinds.
