Lucy, daughter of the late John Klink and Catherine (Yutzy) Klink, was born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, April 12, 1864; died January 6, 1932, aged 67 years, 8 months and 24 days. At the age of 15 she was instructed in the way of salvation and received into the membership of St. Paul's (Wilhelm) Reformed Church. After coming to Meyersdale she united with Amity Reformed Church of which she had been a member for over 45 years. On September 18, 1884, she was married to Jesse Albright. Following her marriage she came with her husband to Meyersdale where she lived ever since. After 15 years of married life her husband was killed in an accident and she was left with a family of five children to support. She faced her task bravely and decided to keep her family together and rear them herself, rather than trust this sacred responsibility to others. Later, when her daughter was widowed and left with a family of small children, she helped to support and care for her grandchildren. She is survived by all of her five children - three daughters, Mrs. Nora Ankley, Pittsburgh; Mrs. Anna Malcom, Youngstown, Ohio; Mrs. Martha Smith, Meyersdale and two sons, Roy of Bridgeville, Pa., and George, at home; seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Funeral services were held at her home Friday afternoon, January 8, at 2 o'clock, in charge of her pastor, Rev. B. A. Black, who spoke from the text, Proverbs 31:28 - "Her children arise up and call her blessed." Misses Sue N. Baer and Lepha Suder sang very beautifully "Nearer My God to Thee," and "Asleep in Jesus." Burial was made in Union Cemetery.
