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
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.
