DAVIS, Clarissa Satterlee
Mrs. Clarissa Satterlee Davis died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Clara Crain, just west of Geneseo, at 3:45 p.m., Friday, Nov. 8, 1901, aged 80 years, 5 months and 2 days.
Clarissa Satterlee comes of an old and honored English family. She was born at Newport, N.Y., June 5, 1821, and married Nathaniel Davis at Newport in 1842. They came to Geneseo in 1871. Her husband died 8 years ago last June, and she has lived with her daughter ever since. There are two children, Mrs. Clara Crain, of Geneseo, and Thomas Davis, of Grinnell, Ia. The latter has been confined to his bed two years with creeping paralysis. To these are extended the warm sympathies of many friends.
Mrs. Davis was a member of the Congregational church. The funeral was held at the church on Monday, Rev. Millard officiating.
A sweet and thoughtful token upon her bier were 80 roses, representing her age, from Mr. and Mrs. O. L. Hoit.
O.D. Kinney, a cousin and noted lawyer of Duluth, was with Mrs. Davis in her last moments.
She was a sweet, lovable lady, whose thoughts and deeds were conceived in kindness. After ascended to the topmost round of the Ladder of Life, she stept into her rest."
