Obituary from the Medina Tribune newspaper: Mrs. Cromwell D. Montrose, 68 years old, wife of Cromwell D. Montrose, secretary of the Detroit Lead Pipe Works, died at her home, 46 West Ferry Avenue, at 9 o'clock Friday night.

Had she lived until January 16, Mr. and Mrs. Montrose would have celebrated their golden weddding. Mrs. Montrose came to Detroit with her husband about 30 years ago from Medina, N. Y., where they were married.

Here she became a member of the Woodward Avenue Presbyterian church, and of the Review Club, interesting herself greatly in charity. Her method of helping others was unusual. Instead of contributing money to charity funds she searched until she found two families whose members were incapable of adequately providing for themselves. That was 20 years ago, and since that time she has always been the main support of at least two such families.

About two years ago, a fall broke Mrs. Montrose's arm, the confinement incident to its healing undermining her health. She and Mr. Montrose traveled extensively through the east in an effort to better her condition, but she never fully recovered.

Surviving Mrs. Montrose are her husband and two nieces, Mrs. Edith Clarke Moore, of Asheville, N. C., and Mrs. T. K. Lawrence.

Funeral services will he held Saturday afternoon in Hamilton chapel. The body was brought to Medina Sunday and funeral services held Monday afternoon at the residence of John T. Miller, Rev. T. A. Kilbourne officiating. The interment was at Mt. Albion Cemetery.
