Mrs. DeArmond, County's Oldest Resident, Enters Final Rest--"Mrs. Mary DeArmond, aged 100 years, 9 months, 3 days, Butler county's oldest citizen, died Sunday afternoon, at 3 o'clock, at her home, eight miles west of Hamilton, on the Scipio pike.

"Since she celebrated her 100th birthday on November 27, 1930, Mrs. DeArmond enjoyed excellent health until the coming of the long heated spell that marked this summer. During the latter part of this period, members of her immediate family began to observe a gradual failure of her strength.

"........As Sunday afternoon was drawing to its close, Mrs. DeArmond passed to her rest peacefully and so quietly that moments passed before those at her bedside realized the spirit had left the aged body it had tenanted for more than a century.

"'Aunt Mary' DeArmond, as she was widely known throughout Butler County, was born November 27, 1830 in Morgan township, a daughter of Reuben and Esther (Harding) George. She lived her entire life within the borders of Morgan township with the exception of two years in Sardinia, Decatur County, Indiana.

"She was married February 22, 1848 (sic) to John Randolph DeArmond who died in January 1870. To them were born two children, of whom one, Mrs. Anna DeArmond Roberts, only survives. Other members of the immediate family surviving include five grandchildren, County Clerk Geo. Roberts, Hamilton; James Roberts, Hamilton; Mrs. Phoebe Rothermel, Reily; Mrs. Imogene Connett, Carthage, and Mrs. Grace Bias, Morgantown township. Of the fourth generation, there are eight great-grandchildren.

"In early life, Mrs. DeArmond united with the M.E. Church at Okeana. for many years the state of her health made it impossible for her to attend church services.

"Since a fall suffered 20 years ago, Mrs. DeArmond had been able to walk only with the aid of a came. At the last Presidential election, however, she insisted that she be taken to the polls to cast her vote.

"The funeral is to be held at the Presbyterian church in Millville Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. At her express wish, her body is to remain three nights in her home, three miles west of Millville on the Scipio pike where friends may call Tuesday afternoon and evening. The funeral service is to be conducted by Rev. D. Emerson Tobias, of Millville. Interment is to be in the Shandon cemetery."
