Mrs. S. Williams Passes to Rest

Mrs. Sarah Williams died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Ira Cribb, on Sunday morning at 10 o'clock. The deceased was about 75 years of age and succumbed after a week's illness. She is survived by two sons, Grant Williams and Charles Bartrum, and a daughter, Mrs. Delia [sic, Della] Cribb. Two sisters, Mrs. Elmira [sic, Emma] Van Horn and Mrs. Mary Whitley also survive. The latter, however, is lying at the point of death at her home in Englewood and Mrs. Williams had just left her bedside and arrived home the day before she was taken ill. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the M. E. Church. Rev. B. A. Dickens officiated.

Note: Mary Whitley, mentioned above, died in Chicago, 4 Dec 1908, and another sister, Harriet E. "Hattie" Heesom, wife of George H. Platt, passed away 11 Aug 1891. Both also are buried in Plainfield Cemetery.
