Furlong, Alice A. (8 APR 1840 - 18 MAY 1884)

Died, in this city (Neillsville, Clark County), at 1 p.m. last Sunday, May 18, 1884, Alice A., wife of Edward Furlong, aged 44 years, after a lingering illness of several months.

Deceased was a daughter of James and Margaret Lynch, of this city, and was born near Pittsburgh, Pa. April 8, 1840. She came to Neillsville with her parents in the spring of 1856, and was married to Edward Furlong in 1858. She was the mother of three children, a son and two daughters, Francis D., Florence and Kittie, all grown. She possessed a lovely and amiable disposition and had many friends. She loved the retirement of home, and the society of her husband and children was all she sought. In her younger days she was a member of the M.E. Church, but for years she has not been connected with any church, but retained that pure, vital Christianity, the glow of which shone out through her acts. Her bereavement falls heavily not only on her husband and children, but her aged parents, brothers and sisters, on of whom, Mrs. S.B. Hewett, far away in Florida, keenly feel the anguish of grief at her departure. The funeral took place from the residence on Monday morning, Rev. W.T. Hendren officiating.
