Smith, Frances (1850? - 4 NOV 1916)

Mrs. Frances Smith, widow of the late James Smith, suffered a paralytic stroke upon retiring at her home Thursday night last and as a result died at an early hour on Saturday morning. Mrs. Smith was sixty-six years of age and had been a resident here (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) for thirty-five years. She was a good woman, always willing to assist in cases of sorrow, of which she herself carried a burdensome share at times during her life. She leaves to mourn one son, Ben McCarthy of this village, and three daughters, Mrs. R. Plecity of this village, Mrs. Phoebe McDonald of Portage and Mrs. Louis Goss of Gibson, Ill., all of who were present at the funeral. She also leaves a sister who resides in North Dakota.

The funeral took place on Monday morning from St. Bernard's Church, Father Neises officiating, interment following in the Catholic Cemetery.
