Jones, Mary (Rodney) 1846-1934 New Lisbon NY Obituary

Mrs. Mary R. Jones, 88,
Dies at Garrattsville

New Lisbon, May 22---Mrs. Mary R. Jones, 88, widow of Michael C. Jones, died early this morning at the home of Donald Bennington, near Garrattsville.
Mary H. Rodney was born in the town of Pittsfield April 11, 1946. Her parents were William and Isabel (McCoy) Rodney. Seventy-two years ago she married Mr. Jones. Nearly their entire married life was spent in the village of Garrattsville, where Mr. Jones died 15 years ago.
She was a member of the Presbyterian church. Her only near surviving relatives are a nephew, William H. Rodney of West Winfield, and a niece, Mrs. Lillian Rooney of South New Berlin.
The funeral will be held in the Presbyterian church, Thursday afternoon at 1 o'clock. Rev. Joseph Muglin, pastor of the church, will officiate. Interment will be at ????.(unreadable due to fading).

Since her husband died in 1919,  I wonder if he died of the flu pneumonia epidemic
then.  I'm always curious about that when I see deaths in the 1918-1919 era.
