In 1884, she was united in marriage to Frank Adams, who along with their two daughters, one son, a brother and other relatives survive her. For many months past, she has been ill, and her last days were full of much suffering. She departed this life at 9:30 pm on Wednesday, January 7.

Her only son of her first marriage, John Packer, was here from Waterville, and attended the funeral which took place from the Baptist Church, Rev. J W Goode of the Free Methodist Church and Rev. W S Lake officiating. Mortician J E Turner had charge of the funeral and the remains were laid to rest in the Harrington Cemetery.
