Obituary (printed in the Orwell Times on February 20, 1920):

Mrs. Clara R. Balcom, wife of Rev. Chas. R. Balcom, who died in 1915, passed away at her home in this village last Friday morning, a victim of pneumonia. She had been in poor health for sometime and was not able to battle with the disease. The deceased was born in the town of West Monroe and lived there until her marriage to Mr. Balcom in 1901. Soon after their marriage they came to this village. Deceased leaves a mother,
Mrs. Lovisa Bolster who resided with her daughter, three sisters, Mrs. Lewis Smith, Camden; Mrs. Oscar Dunn, Constantia; Mrs. Fred Cottet, Syracuse and one brother, Francis E. Bolster, Amboy. Funeral from the home at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon. Rev. A. A. Lawrence, her pastor, spoke words of sympathy from the text, :which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast and which entereth into that within the veil" and from her favorite Psalm, the 23rd Psalm.
The remains were placed in the receiving vault awaiting burial in Fairview Cemetery here.
