Mrs. J. E. Stallard

Libbie Simons was born March 14, 1862, at Palestine, Waukesha county, Wisconsin, where she grew to young womanhood. She came to Humbird in the early '80s, and on Nov. 14, 1888, she was united in marriage with John E. Stallard, the ceremony being performed in LaCrosse.

Their residence was in Fairchild for twenty-eight years, where Mr. Stallard had charge of the grocery department of the Big Store. For the past twenty years their home has been in Madison, where Mrs. Stallard passed away Sunday, June 30, after a long illness, at their residence, 921 Jennifer St. She attained the age of 78 years, 3 months and 16 days.

The remains were brought to Humbird Tuesday morning and were taken to the home of Miss Edith Simons, which had been her home while living here before her marriage, where funeral services were held at 2:00 p. m., the Rev. J. T. Agema, of Augusta, preaching the sermon. Burial was in the Fairchild village cemetery. Pallbearers were Donald Williams, Glenn Stallard, Franklin Stuve, Charles Noyes, John Stallard, W. F. Hein.

One brother, Henry Simons, of Friend, Nebr.; and three sisters, Mrs. Anna Sturdivant, of Waukesha, and Mrs. Lillian Higbee and Miss Mary Simons, of Milwaukee; and twelve grandchildren mourn her death.
