Mrs. Mary Southworth Dies in New Lisbon

Demise on Wednesday—
Funeral Friday last at Her Late Home

New Lisbon, Aug. 30---The community was greatly shocked on Wednesday last when it became known that Mrs. Mary Southworth, widow of Charles Southworth, had passed away after a brief illness from hemorrhage of the brain.
Mary Vonah was born in Switzerland, July 25, 1864, a daughter of Dr. John Vonah. When a girl of 15 years of age she came to America, locating at Utica, where she lived for some time. Later she became a resident of Morris. She was twice married, her first husband being Berton Collier of that place, where she continued to reside. One son, Lewis, was born to them. In 1904 she married Charles Southworth of New Lisbon, that place being their home thereafter. Mr. Southworth died last November.
She was a devoted member of Zion Episcopal church at Morris, a woman with many friends. She was noted for her faithfulness of devoted loyalty to church, family and friends. She was also a member of the St. Paul's guild and Ever Ready club, always taking an active interest in both societies, and will be greatly missed by all in the community where she long resided.
Her only surviving relative in this country is the one son, Lewis Collier.
The funeral was held at her late home Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. E. E. Hutchinson of Morris having charge of the services.
The floral tributes were many and beautiful—the pieces given by family and friends; there was one beside from St. Paul's guild and Ever Ready club.
The bearers were Erle Smith, Levi George, Frank Duroe and Ernst Thurston.
Interment was beside her first husband in Hillington cemetery at Morris.
