On January 20, Emily Josephine, wife of J. E. Mann, aged 78 years died. Miss Emily Josephine Bliven was born November 22, 1824 in the town of Colchester, Delaware County, NY. When 2 years old they removed to Fall River, MA. She completed her early education at a noted seminary in Providence, RI under the tuition of Miss Margarete Fuller at what was known as the Greenstreet School. Removed to Illinois in 1849. Married to John E. Mann on July 5, 1842, who still resides in Sun Prairie Village. Removed to Madison, WI 1856 and to Sun Prairie in 1871. Mrs. Mann was the mother of 11 children; 5 sons and 4 daughters now survive. Her extreme suffering was mitigated by the constant care of a devoted husband and 4 loving daughters, who neglected nothing that would tend to ameliorate her condition up to the moment of final separation. The author has had the privilege of being intimate with the family for near half a century and well he remembers the smile that greeted him at her hospitable board at his first meal in the state in 1854. That smile has pervaded her household, her friends, and the world, through a long and cheerful life and was hardly effaced from her contenance after the spirit had taken its flight to another and a better world. Mrs. Mann was a devout member of the Protestant Episcopal Church. Her religion was not of the type that belived the calamities with which we were visited was the hand of an offended sovereign, but rather the well intended chastisements of a merciful father and heart amidst them that still voice that a good conscience brings to th ear, "Fear not for I am with thee; be not dismayed for I am thy God."

Mrs. J. E. Mann died at her home in this village on Tuesday evening at 11:25 after a lingering illness with a diseas of the stomach. The funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock. 1/21/1903
