An old and familiar figure
that was well-known in this section passed away to the better land
on Tuesday, 27 May 1919, in the person of Mrs. Hosea Boughner.
Seldom within the
recollection of the people of this section has there been a deeper
gloom thrown over the entire community than was produced by the
demise of this estimable lady.
Long will her numberless
good qualities be remembered by those whose good fortune it was to
have known her when in the full possession of health and vigor.
The rare richness and
profusion of the floral offerings surpassed in magnificence
anything of the kind ever witnessed in this section of the
Rev. F. Barnett of Norwich,
who lately returned from overseas, and who was a personal friend
of the deceased officiated at the funeral.
The deceased lady leaves an
affectionate husband and one sister, Mrs. Wallace Elliott, to
whom the sincere sympathy of the who community is extended.
