Mrs. Emma Frances (Troutman) Habel, wife of William H. Habel, died Thursday
night, November 13, at the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Rowe of Salisbury Street, after an illness of several months. She was born in Southampton Township, the daughter of Jacob Troutman and Anna Fair Troutman, March 11, 1859, and had reached the age of 88 years, 8 months and 2 days.
She is survived by her husband W. H. Habel, 91 years of age, a well known
retired businessman of Meyersdale, two sons, Harry F. of Sand Patch, and John A. of Cumberland, and one daughter, Emma F. Rowe of Meyersdale; also by three grandchildren and six great-grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. Anna E. Deneen of Akron, O.
Mrs. Habel was a member of Amity Evangelical and Reformed Church, a member of the order of Eastern Star and of Great Crossings Chapter of D.A.R.

married life in Meyersdale where he was formerly in business in a general store with C. A. Phillips, and was for many years a director of the Second National Bank. Several years ago, due to advancing age they gave up their own home to live with their daughter, Mrs. Rowe. When Mrs. Habel's condition became serious during the summer her husband went to live with their son Harry, and Mrs. Habel was given loving and tender care by her daughter until the end.
Funeral services were held at the Rowe home at 2:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon, with Rev. Nelson C. Brown officiating. Interment in Union Cemetery under the direction of W. C. Price and Son.
