Mrs. Jennie Spicer Crandall.
Mrs. Jennie S. Crandall, wife of Miles Crandall, after a long, painful illness died March 10, 1904, at Oak Park, Ill.

Mrs. Crandall was a native of Jefferson County, N. Y. She was born at Perch River, N. Y., April 12, 1833, and was a daughter of Silas F. and Charlotte Spicer. She spent a large part of her early life as a teacher in the schools in her native county, her last teaching being the Orphans' Home at Watertown, N. Y.

She was married to Orin Barnes Oct. 5, 1876, with whom she
spent a happy but brief married life. Mr. Barnes died in June, 1879, after which she returned to the old home in
Perch River. In April, 1888, she was married to Miles Crandall, of Oak Park, 111., who, though in feeble health, lives to mourn her loss.

Mrs. Crandall was one of those quiet, unpretentious persons whom one must know well to fully appreciate. Her
warm, loving heart and abiding Christian faith are best known to Him with whom are the secrets of all hearts.
She leaves to mourn her loss, besides her husband and his family, two brothers, Henry and Edward Spicer, of Perch River, N. Y.; and three sisters, Mrs. Charlotte Smith, of Watertown, N. Y.; Mrs. Ira O. Banks, of Charemont, N. Y.; Mrs. S. S. Calkins, of Oak Park, 111., and a large circle of relatives and friends.

The funeral services were held Saturday afternoon, March 19, conducted by her pastor, Rev. John Norris Hall. He
was assisted by Rev. J. Clayton Youker, pastor of Euclid Avenue M. E. Church, who read the fifth chapter of Second
Corinthians, which was one of Mrs. Crandall's favorite chapters. She repeated the first verse a short time previous to her death. Prayer was offered, after which her pastor paid a beautiful tribute to her many virtues, a character so poised, so considerate and faithful in all her relations in life, so peaceful and resigned during her long illness. He was a frequent, visitor in her sick room. The singing by Mr. and Mrs. Geo. D. Elderkin was comforting.

Two of the hymns were of Mrs. Crandall's selection, "The Home of the Soul" and "Gathering Home One by One." The beautiful flowers were tokens of the last loving tribute
those who loved her so well could

The pall-bearers were as follows:
Erwin R. Barney, F. L. Manning, Andrew P. Blackstone, George Lewis and Frank D. Webb. Her body was taken to Forest Home Cemetery and placed in the vault.

The interment will be beside her first husband at Sanford's Corners, Jefferson County, N. Y.
