DeLac, Lydia (29 JUN 1849 - 21 AUG 1886)

Died, at her residence near this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.), on Saturday, Aug. 21, 1886, of a complication of diseases, Lydia Babcock, beloved wife of John Delac, aged 37 years, 1 month and 23 days.

Lydia Babcock was born in Pennsylvania, where she resided until her parents moved to Olmsted Co., Minn, where she was married in 1873 to John DeLac, and soon after removed with her husband to this vicinity, settling on a farm about a mile from this village, residing here ever since, excepting a few months spent last year with relatives in Dakota. Being of a kind and loving disposition, she made many friends among all her acquaintances here, and was noted chiefly by many kind acts administered freely in a truly Christian Spirit. She leaves a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn her loss, of the former, parents, one brother and five sisters reside in Dakota. The children are five in number, three boys and two girls, who are left, thus young in years to mourn the loss of a truly good mother.

The funeral was held at the residence on Sunday last and the remains placed to rest in the Thorp village cemetery.
