Ackerman, Edith (28 MAR 1863 - 22 FEB 1916)

Miss Edith Ackerman passed away at the home of her parents Mr. and Mrs. C.A. Ackerman in the town of Weston, Clark County at an early hour Tuesday morning Feb. 22, 1916, aged 52 years, 10 months and 25 days. She suffered a stroke of paralysis on Friday and lingered only a few days.

Edith Ardel Ackerman was born and lived all her life here. She attended school for a time in Neillsville, but practically all her life has been spent on the old farm in Weston, where her parents were among the earliest settlers. With patient love and devotion she worked and cared for her parents as old age crept upon them. They came to depend greatly upon her, and her death will indeed be a severe blow to them. To them goes out the deepest sympathy of all their old friends and neighbors. Hers was a quiet and seemingly uneventful life, and yet it was a true and noble life, and was worthy of remembrance as many whom the world calls great. She leaves to mourn her death her aged parents, a brother Fred, who lives near the old home, a brother, Cecil, who lives in the west and one sister, Mrs. Henry Garvin of Fessenden, N.D. The funeral will be held at the Congregation Church Friday at 2 o’clock p.m., Rev. S.B. Pinney officiating. The funeral will leave the home at 1 o’clock sharp.
