Mansfield, Ella L. 1849-1932 Morris Obituary

Mrs. Ella L. Mansfield
Dies Friday in Morris

Funeral Last Sunday With Good Attendance
The Rector, Rev. E. E. Hutchinson, Officated

Morris, March 21---Morris has lost in the death of Mrs. Ella Mansfield another of the lifetime residents of the village. She passed away on Friday last after a long and trying illness, very patiently borne, at her late home after a critical illness of a few days only. She was born on the East hill in a farm home in 1849, and had always been one of our number. Bishop Tuttle baptized her and she was later confirmed by Bishop Horatio Potter of the diocese of New York.
Her husband, Vernon Mansfield, to whom she was married in 1895, died several years ago.
Her nephew, Howard Coggeshall, now of Utica, and a few other nephews and nieces, are the only ones left to mourn her passing, save a large circle of friends who have long known her. She loved her church though of late able to attend but little at the services.
The funeral was held at Zion church on Sunday last at 2 o'clock, and the attendance was all that one could expect and her flowers were beautiful pieces. Her parents were Jacob and Christine Coggeshall, both of whom died many years ago.
