Upham, Fannie Ann (1859 - 1910)







----Source: Greenwood Gleaner 4/7/1910


On Tuesday morning the people were greatly shocked and grieved to learn of the sudden death of Mrs. Fannie Ann Upham, who passed away quietly at her home on Main Street, death being caused by the grip.

Mrs. Upham had been in poor health the past sixteen years, having on different occasions, visited Virginia, California and Mt. Clemens, Mich., for beneficial purpose and was apparently gaining her lost health when suddenly stricken with the grip, from which she had nearly recovered when she mad a journey to Marshfield and suffered a relapse from which she did not recover.

Fannie Ann Tracy was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lyman Tracy of New York, and was born near Rolling Prairie, Dodge County, Wis., Oct. 27, 1859, passing most of the time in Dodge County until she was married May 1, 1890 to Edward H. Upham of Marshfield, Wis. They resided in Marshfield for six years and then moved to Ashland, where Mr. Upham was engineer on the Soo Line between Ashland and Abbotsford. Mr. Upham's run being changed, they moved to Chippewa Falls. They reside there for a year and a half and from there moved to Greenwood, Clark County in the fall of 1898. Mr. Upham was engineer between Greenwood and Marshfield up to the time of his death two years ago. Mrs. Upham and daughter Frances remained in Greenwood until June and then lived in Juneau until last August, when they returned to Greenwood in order that Frances might graduate from the high school.

Mrs. Upham was a very highly respected woman and was deeply beloved by all who were fortunate enough to make her acquaintance, and who will feel her loss from their midst greatly.

Besides a daughter, Miss Frances L., she leaves her mother, Mrs. Mary Tracy, two sisters, Mrs. W. J. Pampher and Mrs. A. L. Canniff, and three brothers, Henry Tracy of Juneau John Tracy of Beaver Dam and David Tracy of Stewart, Minn., to mourn her death.

The remains looked beautiful and natural, as though peacefully sleeping, in on of the handsomest caskets ever seen in this city, and the beautiful floral emblems given by the Masonic order, Eastern Star, Senior Class and faculty of the high school, and friends, spoke volumes for the esteem in which she was held .

Funeral services were held at the home yesterday at three o'clock by Rev. W. T. Hendren and the remains were taken to Juneau this morning for interment by the side of her husband, and where services will also be held.

Relatives who were here from out of town were Mrs. Mary Tracy, Juneau E. A. Upham and wife and Geo. Upaham of Marshfield and an intimate friend, Mrs. H. Horn of Loyal.
