on June l2, l9l9, she has
made her home with her daughters
spending the summers  with  her
daughter, Mrs. (Katherine Kit) Leo
Vander-May of Wamblee and the winters
with her daughter, Mrs, Val Heinz. For
the last year her strength has failed
steadily. She was able to be about
until a little over a week before her
death and discussed the news and
visted with the family until within
a few hours of her death. She was
always patient and reigned to the
infirmities of old age and very
reluctant to burden those about her.
The end came peacefully last Thursday
morning as she slept quietly
away and passed to her reward. She
Survived by her daughters, Mrs.
Leo Vander-May of Wamblee, and
Mrs. Val Heinz of Dimock and  12
