Obituary from the "New York Times" dated 24 Jan 1912:
Mrs. Elizabeth W. Church, widow of Francis P. Church, for many years an editorial writer on The New York Sun, died on Jan. 12 at Charleston, S. C. After her husband's death she went to Washington and there interested herself in work for the blind, especially in connection with a library. Mrs. Church was also a friend in need to many working girls in New York.

She married Francis Pharcellus Church in 1873.

Since her husband is buried in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, it is presumed that she is buried there also.
