Pashley, Isabel (Chase) 1881-1935 Edmeston Obituary


Mrs. Leon Pashley passed away at Faxton Hospital Friday evening, December 13, as the result of injuries suffered in an automobile accident at Cassville earlier in the day.
Isabel Chase Pashley was born in the town of Plainfield, January 30, 1881, daughter of Frank and Amanda Chase. She was married to Leon Pashley November 16, 1904 and to them were born three daughters, Mrs. Henry Towsley of Munnsville, Mrs. Harry Payne of Edmeston, and Miss Gertrude Pashley who lived with her parents.
Most of her early life was spent in Burlington, at which place she was united with the Baptist church. About twelve years ago she with her family moved to Edmeston where they resided until her death.
Surviving relatives include the husband; two grandchildren Marjorie and Charles Towsley; one brother, Earl Chase of Garrattsville; two sisters, Elsie Chase and Mrs. William Bailey of Burlington; and a half sister, Mrs. Edward Jones of Burlington Flats.
The funeral was held from her late home Wednesday afternoon, December 18, at two o'clock, conducted by Rev. J. F. Weinhauer, former pastor of the Edmeston Baptist church, of which she was a member.
Burial was made in the Union cemetery at Edmeston.


Mrs. Leon Pashley of Edmeston, died Friday evening in Faxton Hospital, Utica, about four hours after she and Mr. Pashley were injured as their car and a truck collided near Cassville. The accident occurred about 4:20 as the auto driven by Mr. Pashley pulled out to pass one truck and skidded into the path of another. It is said Mr. Pashley lost control of his car when he applied brakes to get back into line.
The truck, owned by the Beech-Nut Packing Company and driven by Ernest Reamond of Utica, smashed into the side of the Pashley car and pushed it into a field on the east side of the highway, not far from the upper end of the over head crossing.
Mrs. Pashley suffered multiple lacerations, a fractured right hip, a fractured pelvis and considerable shock. Mr. Pashley was less seriously injured and it is expected he will recover.
