MRS. BALIUS BURDICK
Mrs. Joeanna Burdick, widow of the late Balius Burdick passed away Sunday, March 20, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. William Hickling, from the effects of a shock sustained on Friday.
She had not been in the best of health since February, when she contracted a severe cold, but had so far recovered as to be around the house a part of the time.
Her daughter upon hearing a noise in her room quickly went to see what the trouble was, and found her lying on the floor in an unconscious condition, her right side being paralized.
She failed gradually until the end came.
Deceased was born near Ketchum, in the town of Pittsfield, May 5, 1843, a daughter of Milton and Margaret Hineman Cook.
July 4, 1877 she was married to Balius Burdick and their entire married life was spent in the town of her birth.
Three children came to gladden their union: Mrs. Anna Burdick of Unadilla, Earl Burdick of Rockwells Mills and Mrs. William Hickling of New Lisbon with whom she has lived since the death of her husband four years ago, and who so tenderly cared for her mother.
Besides the three children she is survived by one brother, Thomas Cook, a sister, Mrs. Spencer Dennison, and two grandchildren, Percy Burdick and Claudine Hickling.
The funeral was held at her late home last Wednesday afternoon at 1 o'clock, Rev. harry E. Brooks, pastor of the Morris M. E. church officiating.
Interment was beside her husband in Hillington cemetery.
