Obituary - Gitty Elting, wife of Cornelius D. LeFevre, died at her residence, at Highland, on Sunday. "Aunt Gitty" was the last of a family of 8 sons and daughters, children of Josiah Elting. She had been in failing health for some time, but when we saw her last, Monday, last week, she was still up and around in the room and still cheerful and pleased to see and talk with her friends. On Wednesday she was taken with a fainting fit and died as above stated. She was a devoted wife and mother and a kind hearted Christian woman.
The funeral at the Reformed church in this village, on Wednesday, was well attended, notwithstanding the severe storm that was raging.
Among the most sincere mourners at the funeral was Mr. Daniel Driscoll, of Rosendale, who was in the employ of the husband of the deceased for a long time, over 20 years ago and has never forgotten the kindness received.
