They began housekeeping and always lived at Myers Mills, where for many years her husband has owned and run the grist mill, she very capably assisting him as long as her health permitted.
She was of a quiet disposition and highly esteemed, a dear wife and mother, kind and considerate to all. Her death not only brings deep sorrow to her family but to a wide circle of friends.
