After a long and severe illness, the burden of which was borne with patience and courage, Mrs. Blanche Stilwell Allen died March l3th, 1937, at her home in Skaneateles.

Mrs. Allen, daughter of John M. and Mary E. Cushman Stilwell, was born in Woodville, Jefferson County, N.Y., July 19, 1875. Her early life was spent in Geneva, Illinois, where she received her education, and from whence the family returned to their former home in Ellisburg, in 1894. Married November 25, 1895, to Albert J. Allen, son of John R. and Ann Salisbury Allen, they resided for a short time in Sandy Creek and for a few years in Syracuse, though for the past
thirty-five years their home was in Skaneateles.

Mrs. Allen, an accomplished singer, contributed richly to the ministry of music in the First Presbyterian Church of which she was a devoted member. She was the first Matron of the Skaneateles Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star and for twenty-two years, until the time of her death, was treasurer of the Order, serving also as chairman of the Music Committee.

By her generous spirit she drew about her a large circle of friend who held her in deep respect and tended affection.
Surviving are her husband, Albert J. Allen of Skaneateles,
brother, William Ernest Stilwell, and niece, Mrs. Harold P. Porter of Brockton, Mass.

The funeral service, conducted by Rev. Dr. Albert C. Fulton, minister of the First Presbyterian Church, was held at her late home, Palmer Place, Skaneatles, Tuesday morning March 16th. Burial was in the Allen family lot in the Sandy Creek cemetery where many friends and neighbors of former years gathered to pay their silent tribute of affection
