Lora Ella Codington, 93, died Saturday at her ancestral farmhouse in the Mt. Horeb section of Warren Township. Born June 2, 1910, in the upstairs bedroom of the same house in which she died, she was the daughter of Frank P. and Ida May Codington.The farm is the oldest in Warren. Miss Codington and her brother, Frank Lester Codington, raised peaches, lambs and dairy cows on a small scale using traditional farming methods. They transported the produce to Plainfield for sale until Mr. Codington's death in 1995. She had worked as a bookkeeper from 1940 to 1945, her only employment outside the farm. Her great-grandfather, Isaiah Codington, was a co-founder of the historic Mt Horeb church in 1824. Miss Codington taught Sunday School at the church for 52 years. In 1999, she sold 46 acres of her farm to Warren Township as town parkland.The proceeds were then donated to the Mt. Horeb Methodist Church for the construction of a new Christian education building. Groundbreaking for the building was held June 8, 2003, with Miss Codington in attendance taking the ceremonial first shovel. The farm and farmhouse have been bequeathed to Warren Township to be maintained as an historic site. (Note: name of many family members spelled Coddington.)
