Per her death certificate found on she was a daughter of Edward Allen, born in Albany, and Sarah Coates, born in England, and the widow of Dewey F. Schorb. She lived at 903 Calhoun St. and likely died there. Her cause of death is hard to read, but it looks like she had a lesion that was carcinoma or an ulcer, and hemostasis. The note at the bottom of the certificate: Symptoms indicative of cancer-mass in upper abdomen. Probably cancer of stomach or duodenum. The informant was Miss Sarah Schorb of Columbia, S.C.

Her obituary found in The State 08 February 1949: Mrs. Dewey Follett Schorb died at her residence, 903 Calhoun street; Monday morning following a serious illness of two weeks. Mrs. Schorb, the former Miss Isabel Allen, was born April 3, 1858, in Albany, N.Y., the daughter of Edward and Sarah Coates Allen. She had lived in Columbia since she was a small girl, coming here soon after the Confederate war. She was bed-ridden for over seven years, but always gave cheer to those who visited her, and by her quiet, gracious manner, she endeared herself to all with whom she came in contact. She is survived by one daughter, Miss Sarah Schorb of Columbia; two grandsons, Robert H. Schorb, Jr., and Samuel L. Laughinghouse, Las Vegas, Nev. She was a member of the Washington Street Methodist church. Funeral services will be held at 3 o'clock this afternoon from the Dunbar Funeral home, conducted by the Rev. Wallace D. Gleaton, assisted by the Rev. Clyde Hendrix. Active pallbearers will be O. D. Adair, Legare Bullard, Jesse D. Gardner, W. Rhett Hartin, W. B. Summersett, Jr., and M. H. White.
