Smith, Ida Mae (Light) 1878-1954 Morris Obituary

Smith, Ida Mae (Light) 1878-1954 Morris Obituary

Mrs. Ida M. Smith

MORRIS --- Mrs. Ida Mae Smith, 67, died Monday at her home. Funeral services will be held at 2 p. m. Thursday in the Morris Methodist Church. The Rev. Winifred Lyon, pastor, will officiate, assisted by Rev. Samuel Little of Endwell. Burial will be in Hillington Cemetery.
She was born May 3, 1887, daughter of Charles and Sarah (Morse) Light. She was married to Albert Smith, Oct. 25, 1905.

Mrs. Smith was a member of the Methodist Church and the OES.

Surviving are her husband; one son, Cecil of Morris; one granddaughter and several nieces and nephews.
 It also includes a photo of her gravestone along with her husband, Albert Smith.

Addendum: Ida's tombstone gives her birth as 1878 instead of the 1887 noted
in her obituary. It would seem that the 1878 is the correct date. On the 1880
census, she is listed as 2 yrs. Old. On the 1900 census, she is in her parent's
household, age 22, listed as Ida Hull, and widowed.

In conclusion, the corrected information would make her 76 or 77 at the time of her death instead of 67.
