In the death of Mrs. Delia Riley Votraw, widow of the late Jules Votraw, which occurred at her home in what is known as the Rolling Mill Hill section of Au Sable Forks, New York, Thursday morning, March 25, 1937 about 3:35 o'clock, another highly esteemed resident of Au Sable Forks went to her eternal reward.

Born at Chester, Vermont, Mrs. Votraw had been a resident of Au Sable Forks since 1893. She had been in failing health for some time, but it was not until about four weeks before the end came that her condition was regarded as serious. She was in the truest sense of the word a home woman, her greatest happiness being with her family.

She was the mother of sixteen children, of whom the following survived: Mrs. Freeman Keyea, Au Sable Forks; Mrs. Clifford Roberts, Hatfield, Massachusetts; Mrs. George Pelkey, Au Sable Forks; Joseph, Walkill, New York; John, Thomas and Albert, Au Sable Forks; William and Wilbur, Syracuse, New York; Clarence, Long Island, and Urgil, Walkill. One brother, Joseph Riley of Paterson, New Jersey, and one sister, Mrs. Felix Carpenter of Waterbury, Connecticut, also survive her, as do 23 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.

The funeral was held on Saturday morning, March 27, 1937, but owing to the fact that it was Holy Saturday, the funeral mass could not be celebrated. Rev. Father Kelly officiated at the services on Saturday and Rev. Father Fraser was the officiating priest at the funeral
mass celebrated at 8 o'clock Monday morning, March 29, in Holy Name Church.

The interment was in the family plot in Holy Name cemetery and the bearers were George Pelkey, Raymond Horrigan, Wilfred Sorrell, Eli Sorrell, William Snye and Wilfred Bola.
