Barrett, Mrs. Wm. (1827? - 6 OCT 1912)

Mrs. Wm. Barrett, who has been in a feeble condition for the past year, died on Sunday afternoon last after a long life of usefulness, aged eighty-five years. She was born in Canada, in the province of Quebec, County Gaspe, where she was united in marriage with Wm. Barrett, forty years ago. The family has lived in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) twenty-nine years. During her long residence here she enjoyed the friendship of everyone she met. Disease did not destroy the charm of a kind disposition no old age diminish her unselfish solicitude for her friends and loved ones. Adhering to the faith of her fathers, she united with the Methodist Church in early life and loved to attend its services when health permitted. While she has continued to enjoy the society of her friends and family she has for the past year realized that her active life was over and with resignation awaited the Divine call from death into life. Her grief stricken husband and sons, Wm. E. Barrett and Ernest H. Barrett, and daughter, Mrs. A. Steele, have the sincere sympathy of the entire community. The funeral took place from the M. E. Church on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. J. T. Kneen officiating, interment taking place in the Thorp Village Cemetery.
