Duroe, Mary Ann Thurston 1847-1928

Mother-Daughter Die of Pneumonia
Another Daughter in Norwich Family Seriously Ill in Hospital----Mother Was Born in Morris

Norwich, Feb. 1.---Mrs. Mary A (Thurston) Duroe, widow of C. R. Duroe, died at her home, 89 North Broad street, this city shortly after 4 o'clock this afternoon, following a two weeks illness of lobar pneumonia. A daughter, Miss Jane Duroe, a teacher in the Norwich public schools, died of the same disease at 9:30 o'clock last night. Another daughter, Miss Eliza Duroe, who for some time has conducted a beauty parlor at the family home was removed yesterday afternoon to the Norwich Memorial hospital, also stricken with pneumonia.
The mother, who passed her 80th birthday anniversary a few months ago, was born near Morris. After her marriage to Mr. Duroe, the family moved to a farm in Norwich Quarter, on the South New Berlin road, where Mr. Duroe became one of the leading farmers of that section and the home was widely known for its hospitality. The family was active in the Norwich Congregational church.
Twenty years ago they moved to a larger farm on Great Brook in the town of New Berlin where Mr. Duroe died 10 years ago. Three years ago the remaining members of the family returned to Norwich and bought the home on North Broad street.
Besides the daughter ill in the hospital, another daughter, Miss Ruth H. Duroe, resides at home; a son, Vernon Duroe, is a teacher in Brooklyn; and Francis Duroe is a farmer near Morris. A double funeral service will probably be held Friday afternoon.

Both Jane and Mary Ann are buried at Norwich Quarter Cemetery on Rt. 23 east of Norwich at the corner of Wells Rd.
and Rt. 23.  Rodney Collingwood Dure, Mary Ann's husband is also buried there along with others in the family.  There are Find A Grave memorials for them at Norwich Quarter Cemetery, Chenango County, NY.
