Catherine Louise Duroe Mack of New Lisbon, Widow of D. H. Mack.

Mount Vision, May 31---Catherine C. Mack, widow of the late Daniel H. Mack, died at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Dorrence C. Talbut this Sunday morning at 11:45 o'clock, after an illness of three weeks. Death was due to the infirmities of age.
Mrs. Mack was born in Cherry Valley, November 8, 1833. She was the youngest and the last of a family of thirteen, the others coming from Derbyshire, England, she being the only one born in this country.
Mrs. Mack was industrious, active and a great reader, informing herself on all the topics of the day. Although she was advanced in years she was keen and alert, ever keeping abreast of the times and enjoyed life to the utmost. Six years before the death of the late Daniel H. Mack, they celebrated their golden wedding. About two years ago Mrs. Mack celebrated her ninetieth birthday, ever thinking of those events as festive occasions.
Mrs. Mack was a member of the Hartwick Christian church and Sunday school for many years, coming from the Baptist church at Welcome when she was young. She was a member of the Missionary society and took an active part in all the departments.
Grandma Mack was greatly beloved, and universally respected by all who knew her.
Mrs. Mack had been most fortunate in being surrounded by her children, E. W. Mack of Hartwick and Mary E. Talbut of New Lisbon; six grandchildren, who are Dean H. Mack, Mrs. W. Clyde Carr, Mrs. George Milton Augur of Hartwick, Mrs. Ebenezer Talbot of Leonardsville, Drs. Benjamin H. and Blaine I. Talbut of Toledo, Ohio, also two great grandsons, D. H. Mack of Hartwick and Richard Benjamin Talbut of Toledo.
