Niles, Catherine (Parker) 1858-1930s Morris Obituary
Mrs. Edward Niles of
Morris Passes Away
Morris, July 17---After many months of invalidism, Mrs. Edward Niles passed away at the family home on Hargrave street Monday afternoon at 2:15 from the effects of a slight shock, which she suffered recently.
Catherine (Parker) Niles, youngest daughter of Calvin and Eliza Parker, was born March 11, 1858, in Otselic, where she spent her girlhood.
In March, 1880, she married Edward Niles, for many years a well known cheesemaker, operating factories in Sherburne and Maple Grove. Later the family moved to Morris, where for a time Mr. Niles conducted a livery stable. Mr. Niles died in August, 1932.
To them were born four children: Floyd Niles, now residing at Lee Center, Guy Niles of Morris, Mrs. Daniel Warner of Hyde Park, Vt., and Howard Niles, who died in 1921.
The deceased had been a consistent member of the Methodist church for many years and active in all the branches as long as her health permitted. However, her chief interest was in the home, where as a devoted wife and a kind and indulgent mother, her memory will ever be cherished.
Immediate surviving relatives are the three children and nine grandchildren, Edward, Donald, Louise, Lois and John Bradford Niles of Lee Center, Richard, Robert and Jean Warner of Hyde Park, Vt., Mrs. Harry Winner of Oxford, to all of whom sincere sympathy is extended.
The funeral services, conducted by Rev. Dr. C. E. Vermilya, pastor of the Methodist church, will be held in Sloan's Funeral parlors Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment will be in the family plot on the new part of Hillington cemetery.
