Unadilla, Nov. 24---Ida W. Terwilliger, wife of Harry Hanford, passed into rest at 5:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The funeral will be held at the home Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Freedom chapter, O. E. S., of which she was conductress, will attend in a body, and conduct their burial service. Rev. Frank R. James, assisted by Rev. John T. Lyon, will be the officiating clergyman.
Mrs. Hanford was born in Kerhonksen, May 13, 1886. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Terwilliger. She was united in marriage with Harry Hanford 17 years ago. She is survived by her husband, two sons, Donald Wallace 16, and Robert Herman four, by her mother-in-law, Mrs. Minnie Hanford, with whom they came to live when Mr. Hanford died August 29, 1928, and who loved her as an own daughter; her father, William H. Terwilliger of Kerhonksen; one sister, Mrs. Arthur Osterhout of Accord, and five brothers, George Terwilliger of Millwood, John D. of Pleasantville, William A. of Endicott, and Edward L. and Theron D. of Kerhonksen.
Mrs. Hanford was a member of the Unadilla Methodist Episcopal church and of Freedom chapter, O. E. S. She was an ideal wife, mother and daughter, always happy and cheerful in her home life, doing her part in home, church and society. She bore her suffering of months, without a murmur and never gave up while it was possible for her to do something for others.
The family has the sincere sympathy of a large circle of friends, that one so young, so capable and so cheerful must leave, when it seemed as though she was so much needed, and so ready and willing to do for others.
