MRS. BARKLEY, 90, INJURED IN FALL, CALLED BY DEATH
Richland Township Resident Suffered Fracture of Hip in Accident Case
NATIVE OF SOMERSET
Mrs. Susan (Pugh) Barkley, aged 90, one of the oldest residents of Richland Township, died yesterday at the home of her son, Willis Barkley. Death was attributed to complications, super-induced by injuries suffered by Mrs. Barkley six weeks ago when she fell down a flight of steps at her home. She suffered a fracture of the hip and bruises about the entire body and had since been bed-fast.
Despite her age Mrs. Barkley was able to take care of her household duties until she was injured.
Mrs. Susan Barkley was born in Somerset County. She was married to Jonathan Barkley and resided on a farm near Scalp Level for more than 40 years. Her husband passed away seven years ago. Since the death of her husband she had been making her home at her son's residence, which is located about a mile from the Frankstown Road in Richland Township.
Surviving are the following children: Mrs. Mary Johnston, Mrs. Nora Weaver, and Mrs. Charlotte Hoffman, all of Sidman; Mrs. Ira Stull of Conemaugh Township, Cambria County; Mrs. Della Moose of Mineral Point; Audulf Barkley of Sidman and Willis Barkley.
Mrs. Barkley was a sister of E. L. Pugh and Mrs. Jacob Saylor, both of Meyersdale; Mrs. Charles Pugh of Somerset and Silas Pugh of West Virginia.
Funeral services will be conducted Friday morning at 10 o'clock at the home by Rev. L.B. Hershberger, pastor of the Locust Grove Church of the Brethern. Interment will be in the Maple Spring Church of the Brethern near Jerome, in charge of Howard Barefoot, Salix mortician.
