Dailey, Cornelia (20 DEC 1845 - FEB 1916)

Death summoned Mrs. George F. Dailey at 1:15 o’clock this morning, following a long illness, and intense suffering for the past few weeks. Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 1:30 o’clock at the home at 1119 Arctic St., and at two o’clock at the Methodist Church.

Mrs. Cornelia Dailey was born in St. Lawrence County, New York, Dec. 20th, 1845. She came with her parents to Wisconsin in 1854, settling at Fond du Lac. She was married to George F. Dailey in 1856, and moved to the town of Colby, Clark County, seven years later. Mr. and Mrs. Dailey came to Antigo in 1902. Mrs. Dailey united with the Methodist Church at Antigo in 1903 during the pastorate of Rev. F. A. Nimits. She was an exemplary Christian, a faithful member of the official board of the Ladies Aid Society and of the Women’s Foreign Missionary Society. In all of her suffering her cheerful spirit did not fail her and the end was peaceful. Besides her husband, she leaves four daughters, Mrs. Amelia Parkhill, Mrs. Mary Carpenter, Mrs. Ida Gould and Miss Susie Dailey; two sisters, Mrs. Amelia Hotalling, Mrs. Marion Walker, and a brother, H.L. Gardner, the latter three from Fond du Lac.

Interment was made in the city cemetery, and the pallbearers will be her six grandsons, Messrs. Herbert Carpenter, Ray Carpenter, Archie Carpenter, Harry Carpenter and Lester Parkhill.

Mrs. Dailey’s twins sister, Mrs. Hotalling, has been with her since last week. (Antigo Daily Journal)

Mrs. Dailey and family were pioneer settlers of Colby, and has hosts of friends here who will join the Phonograph in expressions of sympathy to the husband and daughter.
