Wolfendale, Betty 1913-unknown, Morris NY Obituary
MRS. F. C. WOLFENDALE
Mrs. F. C. Wolfendale died at the family home in Morris Thursday night, May 17, following a long period of declining health. She had been practically bedridden for over a year and although everything possible was done for her comfort, she suffered intensely from the effects of pernicious anemia and death came as a blessed relief.
Betty Augusta Uszkurat, yougest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Uszkurat, was born in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, May 12, 1886. Her father died before her third birthday and shortly after that the family returned to Matz, Germany, where the deceased received her education and remained until 18 years of age when she rejoined her family in Pittston, Pennsylvania.
On September 5, 1913, Miss Uszkurat was united in marriage to Fred C. Wolfendale of Pittston. To them were born two sons, William B. Wolfendale, now in the fifth field artillery, stationed at Madison Barracks, and Clifford E. Wolfendale, who is a student in the eighth grade in Morris Central school.
Mr. and Mrs. Wolfendale moved to Oneonta about 15 years ago, where the former obtained employment in the D. & H. shops but in 1926 came to Morris, where they have since resided on Water street.
Mrs. Wofendale was a woman deeply devoted to her family and although handicapped for years by ill health, she was intensely fond of flowers and spent much of her time working among them as long as her health permitted. She was considered an authority on flower culture; her gardens were noted for the profusion and variety of their blossoms which she delighted to share with her friends.
The immediate surviving relatives are the husband and two sons previously mentioned, and her aged mother; one sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Mahar, and one brother Bernard Uszkurat, of Oneonta, to all of whom sincere sympathy is extended.
Funeral services, conducted by Rev. R. J. VanDeusen, pastor of the Oneonta Lutheran church, were held at Sloan's funeral parlors on West Main street Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment was in the family plot in the new part of Hillington cemetery.
