Brookfield Courier, Wednesday, May 25, 1927

Although she had been ailing for a long time, suffering from a complication of diseases, the death of Mrs. Hollum Langworthy came as a shock to the community, occurring at her home in Hamilton at two o'clock Wednesday mornings.

Mrs. Langworthy was one of the oldest and best known residents of Hamilton and vicinity and until a short time ago was most active in. church and civic organizations. She was a member of the Baptist church, the Helpful Circle of King's Daughters, and the Daughters of the American Revolution, Madison Chapter, at the time of her death.

Rosina Pope was born February 4, 1845, at Columbus Quarter, N. Y. She spent most of her life in that vicinity, until her removal to Hamilton in 1903. She united with the Baptist church at Columbus Quarter in her early girlhood and remained true to her faith till death. She transferred her membership to the local Baptist church upon her removal to Hamilton. October 2nd, 1862, Mrs. Langworthy was united in manage to Mr. Hollum Langworthy. Five children were born to them, two of whom have attained distinction in Hamilton; Dr. Wm. F. Langworthy, Professor. at Colgate University, and Dr. Orthello Langworthy, prominent physician of this village. There were three daughters who have married and moved to other places: Mrs: Charles H. Fullerton of Columbus, Ohio, Mrs. Harry B. Rathbone of Newark, New Jersey, and and Mrs. Frank L. Anderson, wife of the pastor of Calvary Baptist church Of Utica, N. Y.

Considering the fact of Mrs. Langworthy's being 82 years of age, it seems the more remarkable that this should be the first break in the family circle—-all the children and her husband surviving her. There are also eight grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and one sister, Mrs; P. A. Page of New Berlin.

The funeral service was held at her late home on Pleasant street, Friday afternoon, May 20th,. Conducted by her pastor, Rev. Franklin D. Elmer. Interment was made in the family plot at Woodlawn cemetery.

Knowing the life of this fine, godly, mother and her influence on her sons and daughters, makes the following
poem a true tribute to her life:

You painted no Madonnas
On chapel walls in Rome;
But with a touch diviner
You lived one, in your home.

You wrote no lofty poems
That critics counted art;
But with a nobler vision
You lived them in your heart.
