Stickles, Laura L. 1870- Morris, NY
Mrs. Laura L. Stickles
of Morris Passes Away
Morris, Jan. 14---Mrs. Laura L. Stickles of Hargrave street, widow of Charles Stickles, died about 10 o'clock Tuesday morning at the Parshall hospital in Oneonta, where she had been a patient for four days. She had been in ill health for many years and confined to bed for several weeks.
Laura (McIntyre) Stickles, the older of the two children of Ansel and Ellen (Cotton) McIntyre, was born March 17, 1870, in Norwich. When but a small child, the family came to Morris to reside and here she spent practically her whole life.
January 26, 1887, she married Charles Stickles of Morris, for many years sexton of Hillington cemetery. Mr. Stickles died October 23, 1912. To them were born two children, Miss Ella Stickles, who lives at home and had faithfully cared for her mother during her long period of invalidism, and Wayne Stickles of Binghamton.
When a young woman, Mrs. Stickles united with the Christian church in Otego. Later she tranferred her membership to the Morris Methodist church and attended its services as long as her health permitted. Her chief interest, however, was in her home, where as a devoted mother and a kind and obliging neighbor, she will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends.
Immediate surviving relatives include the daughter, Miss Ella Stickles of Morris; the son, Wayne Stickles of Binghamton; a grandson, Donald Stickles of Binghamton; a great aunt, Mrs. Mary Alger of Edmeston, and numerous cousins, to all of whom sincere sympathy will be extended.
Funeral services, conducted by Rev. Dr. Charles E. Vermilya of the Methodist church, will be held at Sloan's Funeral home Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment will be in the family plot in the new part of Hillington cemetery.
