Death of Mrs. Nelson Green

The many Waterford friends of Mrs. Nelson Green were sorry to hear of her death in Hamilton on Monday, 16th inst. Since the death of Mr. Green, eight years ago, she has not enjoyed good health, and especially during the last year she suffered much from nervous troubles. During her illness she made her home with her son Glenn, and no mother ever received more attention or nursing that she did. She also had to care for her, Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Green and Mr. and Mrs. D. J. Horning, who live in Hamilton, and her son Dr. LeRoy Green of Panama, N.Y., paid her frequent visits during her illness. There never was a purer or nobler woman lived in Waterford and we know this same thought is echoed in the hearts of her many friends.

During her long residence in Waterford, she was closely identified with all of the interests of the Waterford Methodist church. She was quiet and unassuming, but faithful to every duty imposed upon her. Her home life was ideal and no husband ever had a better wife and no boys ever had a better or more patient and devoted mother.

Mrs. Green was a daughter of the late Harvey Kellum, who came here from Michigan with his wife and two daughters many years ago and started a plow foundry. She leaves to mourn their four sons, Glen and Clyde of Hamilton, Frank of Vancouver, and Dr. LeRoy of Panama, N.Y., and her sister Miss Kellum, who makes her home with Dr. LeRoy.

The service was conducted at the home of home of the late Mrs. Bezzo yesterday afternoon by Rev. J. Truax. Interment took place in Greenwood cemetery.
