Alden, Lucy Morris (Chaffee), 1836-1912 Alden, Lucius David, d. 1898 Alden. In Hampden, Mass., Dec. 21, 1912, Lucy Chaffee Alden, aged 76 years.Hundreds of readers of this and other pages will be sorry to hear that Lucy Chaffee Alden's has written its last lines. She reached the end of her long years of bodily weakness and physical suffering on Forefather's Day, and her frail form was laid away in the beautiful hill side cemetery in the family lot. Rev. C.B. Bliss of the local Congregational church conducted the services, the accidental absence of Rev. Clarence M. Seamans of the Advent church in Springfield. He was not altogether unprepared, having made the evening service in his own church the day before a tribute to her memory, and having spent many delightful hours in her company during the last ten years.Lucy Morris Chaffee was born in South Wilbraham, now Hampden. When she was fifty-four years old she married Lucius David Alden, who died some ten years later. Three years ago friends edited and published for her a collection of forty-five of her poems, under the title "Songs of Hope." It will always be a source of comfort and strength for her friends, for the home town which she loved, and for the church.We study the Bible with her long and patiently, and count ourselves fortunate if we can follow her as she reads the New Testament in Greek, after patiently learning the language alone, in order that she might better understand her Saviour. We ponder with her the mysteries of prophecy, and the unshaken promises of the Book; we call on Jesus in the carpenter's shop, follow him about Palestine, into the garden, and on into heaven, and into the future glories of his kingdom.
