Henderson, Mary R. (17 JAN 1847 - 7 JUN 1915)

Mrs. John Henderson died at her home in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) at an early hour on Monday, June 7, 1915, after a brief illness of less than two days duration, hemorrhage being the cause which speedily hastened the end. Mary Rosina Pickett was born at Wauwatosa, Milwaukee Co., Wis. on Jan. 17, 1847, and moved to Hortonville, Outagamie Co., with her parents, where she grew to womanhood. In 1881 she came to Thorp with her husband, and with the exception of about two years spent on a farm near Sheldon, has since resided here. Among us all she ranked always as a woman of culture, refinement, sympathy, a kind neighbor, devoted mother and true friend, and withal a woman of heroic mould in bravely meeting the stern requirements and often the disappointments in life. She leaves to mourn, a sorrow stricken husband, Mr. John Henderson, and two children, E. C. Barigo of Concordia, Kansas, a son by a former husband, and Mrs. John Ambrose of Stevens Point, also one brother, S. S. Pickett of Kingston, Wash., and one sister, Mrs. Anna Brazelton who resided her with her.
