Mrs. Harriet M. Covey of Pittsville, Wis., died at St. Joseph’s Hospital at Marshfield Friday evening Nov. 23rd, at the age of 58 years 1 mo. and 8 days. Harriet Dawes, daughter of W. C. and Laura S. Dawes, was born in Jefferson Co. New York July 15th, 1859. At the age of five years she came with her parents to Waterloo, Wis. After a short residence at this place moved with the family to Pittsville, in the year 1876, settling on a farm north east of Pittsville. She was married to Lincoln Covey the twelfth day of March 1884, to which union one daughter and three sons were given, Leon Covey of Pittsville, Mrs. Stella Roehl of Greenwood and Marvin and Glenn also of Pittsville. The family lived at Pittsville until the spring of 1901 when they moved to Loyal, Wis., living there until three years ago when they moved back to their present home north east of Pittsville.
Mrs. Covey was very domestic in her tastes, very jolly, always looking on the bright side of things, a lover of home and earnestly devoted to its obligations and the well being of her family. She was one of the first members of Pittsville Congregational Church and can truly be classed as one of Pittsville’s pioneers, and very highly esteemed and loved by all who knew her.
The funeral was held at the Congregational Church at Pittsville on Tuesday Nov. 27th. Rev. Ambrose from Marshfield officiating, and the interment at Mound cemetery. Her final sickness was of short duration, and while confident of her recovery, her death came as a shock to all. Besides the husband, daughter and three sons the deceased left to mourn her departure one uncle, Mr. Chas. Gardner of Cape Vincent, N.Y., four sisters and seven brothers. The funeral was largely attended by relatives and sympathizing friends and neighbors who evidenced by their presence their regards for the departed one. Out of town attendance at the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Otto Roehl of Greenwood, Wis., Mr. and Mrs. Grant Cage of Omro, Wis., Mr. and Mrs. Will Dawes and family of Waltham, Minn., Mrs. A. C. Galloway and daughter, Leota of Waupaca and Mrs. Laura Pickett of Alma Center.
