Fannie Thomas Pratt, daughter of James A. and Mary J. Thomas, died at the residence of A.B. Pratt, on Monday last, August the fifth. She was born in Walworth County July 9th, 1856, but in her infancy came to Ripon where the family made their permanent home. She had the advantage of a good education, both in the public schools and in Ripon College, completing the Sophmore year in the latter of 1874. In September, 1875, she was married to Lyman A. Pratt, and of this marriage there were born three children: Mary B., born in 1877 and died in 1883; Laura Pratt Jenkinson, born in 1878, now living in Milwaukee; and George H. Pratt born in 1888, with the First National Bank of Milwaukee. The life and faithful services of Mrs. Pratt have been mostly in Ripon, though she had her residence in Dakota from 1881 to 1888, and in Milwaukee from 1905 to 1907. Such is the scanty outline of the life of a superior woman, whose loss is deeply mourned by a wide circle of kindred and friends.
In the study of lives we find those that fill the public eye by conspicuous activities, but others little seen or known in public ways, whose wisdom shines in the home and among the select friends to whom friendship is a treasure and joy. The latter lives after all run in the deeper channels of personal and spiritual power, and to this class belonged Mrs. Pratt. In life she has had many trials, but in all she showed the virtues of rare fortitude and sweetness, and she was never swerved from her life's purposes of service and helpfullness for those whom she might influence and bless. Refined in tastes, skillful in thought and act, persistant in faith, she filled to the full the measure useful living. In her last sickness she was a great sufferer, but her fortitude did not for a moment fail her, and she drew to herself afresh the affection of those who have been ever unstinted in the bestowment of affection...
Besides her two children she leaves one sister, Mrs. Alice Chandler of Sycamore, Ill.
The funeral was held from the residence of her father-in-law on Watson Street and the remains were laid to rest in the Ripon Cemetery.
