Another Clare County Pioneer has gone, in the passing of Mrs. Alta E Langworthy.

Alta E Ford daughter of Morris and Mercy Ford was born March 5, 1869, in Monroe County, Michigan, this being her home until October 9, 1887, when she was united in marriage to Edwin J. Langworthy, of Clare County, where they hewed a home out of the wilderness in Sheridan Township. To this union seven children were botn.

Her husband was taken by death August 13, 1907, leaving her the responsibility of rearing the family of small children. Two of the children preceded her in death, Etha O. dying at the age of 20 and Carl F. at the age of 31.

In 1919 she moved to Mt. Pleasant where she has since made her home. She had been in failing health for the past two years, pneumonia causing her death December 5, 1938. All was done that loving hands could do but her frail body could not stand. Her children were all at her bed side to the end.

She was a kind and loving mother and a good neighbor. Five children are left to mourn her departure; Mrs. Eva Dutcher, with whom she made her home, Ralph and Lloyd of Mt. Pleasant, Mrs. Audrey Guest of Pontiac, and Mrs. Edith Parker of Lake City. She also leaves sixteen grand-children and three great grandchildren and one brother, B. R. Ford, of Ypsilanti.

Those from a distance attending the funeral, which was held at the Stinson Chapel, December 8, were: Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Guest and family and Mrs. Robert Canning of Pontiac, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Parker and family of Lake City, Mrs. E. B. Langworthy of Owosso, Mr. and Mrs. Forest Langworthy and Mrs. Bert Russel of Lansing, Mr. and Mrs. Orrin Whitmill and son of Temperance, Mr. Edwin Whitmill of Marion, Mr. and Mr.s Charles Davis and family, Ronald and Floyd Langworthy, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Rillett, Mrs. Robert Shull, Mr. Lincoln Langworthy of Clare.
