Contact: Arlene Peil

Surnames: Burch

----Source: Greenwood Gleaner (25 Jan 1906)

Word was received Saturday noon that Grandma Burch had died that morning at the home of her son-in-law, Ed. Strand, near Blair. Mr. and Mrs. E. T. Burch and Edna and Mrs. Thea Anderson left Monday morning to be present at the funeral. Deceased was 95 years old last Sept. 30th and up to about ten years ago was a rugged woman. At that time she sustained a stroke of paralysis on the right side, but from which she partially recovered. During the past year she has failed quite fast so that her mind weakened and dwelt almost wholly on things of the long ago. Her son E. T. Burch was down to see her only a few weeks ago and found her as well as she had been during the past year. For some eighteen years Grandma made her home with her son in Greenwood, but for the past seven years has resided with her daughter, Mrs. Strand at Blair, this daughter dying during the past summer.
