A telegram received here Saturday afternoon by relatives bore the sad tiding that Mrs. William T. Mann had died early that morning at her home in Kennewick, WA. The cause of her death was pernicious senemis, from which she had been a sufferer for more than 2 years. She was nearly 63 years of age. The remains have been sent to this village for burial, arriving today accompanied by Mr. Mann and his daughter, Miss Dorothy. Funeral services will be held at the M. E. Church tomorrow (Friday) afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. Glotfelty officiating. Burial will be made in the family lot in the village cemetery. Sarah M. Haner was born in the town of Bristol on Nov. 17, 1856, being the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Haner. She grew to womanhood on the home farm and on March 22, 1881 was united in marriage to William T. Mann. For the first year or two after marriage they conducted the Mann Hotel in this village. Then they moved onto a farm at Verona, Dane County. From there theymoved to South Dakota. In the early 90's, they came back to Wisconsin and Mr. Mann engaged in the lumber business at Washburn. About 1895 they returned to Sun Prairie, where Mr. Mann followed the same business in the firm of Chase, Gross & Mann. Ten years ago they moved to Kennewick, WA, where they have since resided. Two children, Edwin and Dorothy were born to them and they with the husband and father are left to mourn her death and cherish her memory. Besides her immediate family she is survived by her aged father, J. M. Haner, whose 91st birthday anniversary came on the day of her death; two brothers, F. E. and R. E. Haner of this village; and three sisters, Mrs. G. W. Miars of Ashland and Mrs. William Birkinbine and Mrs. E. C. Cobb, also of this village. She was not only a good housewife and mother, but gave much time to her art of painting. She was also active in social and community welfare movements. It was she who promoted the organization of the 20th Century Club and was its first president. She was also the founder of the public library. As a last tribute to her memory the members of the 20th Century Club will attend her funeral tomorrow in a body.
