Tompkins, Eliza C. (1846? - 29 JAN 1892)

At her home just north of the village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) limits, Mrs. Eliza C., wife of Howard H. Tompkins, died on Saturday morning last, of typhoid pneumonia, after an illness of eight days, aged 45 years. Mrs. Tompkins, whose maiden name was Eliza C. Coleman, was born in Sussex, England, and removed to Hamilton, N.Y. with her parents when six years of age, where she spent the greater portion of her life. In Oct. 1884 she was united in wedlock with Mr. Tompkins and they settled on a homestead in the town of Warner, Clark County, Wis, where they continued to reside until their removal here nearly two years ago. In early life she became a member of the Baptist Church and upon her removal here took a deep interest in church work, also teaching a Sunday school class and being an untiring worker in the ranks of the W. C. T. U. Always a good Christian, she passed quietly to rest in the arms of her Savior, her life work ended, her suffering past, for an eternity of happiness in heaven. She was devoted to her home circle and beloved for her extreme kindness to all by her every acquaintance. She leaves a husband and son, two sisters, one residing at Churchville, the other at Madison, N.Y., and a brother, George Coleman, of this place, to mourn her early demise. The interment took place on Monday afternoon from the Baptist Church, Rev. E. B. Edmunds officiating, the remains being followed to the Thorp Cemetery by a large concourse of sympathizing friends.
