Mrs. Elizabeth H. Delano In the passing of Elizabeth Hartwell Delano, wife of the late Hon. W. W. Delano, of Abbot, which occurred October 12, the people of this vicinity have met with a distinct loss, one that they will appreciate more as they remember her many excellent qualities of mind and womanhood. She was always a leader in the best things of life, modest and unassum- ing, of fine education and a wonder- ful knowledge of all the best in lit- erature. She had a splendid library, an accumulation of many years of the choicest books from which she was ever willing to allow others to glean help andinspiration.While well filled with works of fiction it was especially valuable to the student who could find books of value in any line of study they were pursuing. She was a valued member of church,GrangeandtheWilling Workers. She was born in St. Albans 74 years ago.When a young woman she taught school very suc- cessfully in the West. She was mar- ried to Mr. Delano in Abbot over 40 years ago and has always resided here.For the past few winters she has lived with her daughter, Helen in Yonkers, New York.Returning to the home she loved so well, her failing health did not allow her to return to New York. During her last illness her sons and daughter, were with her, and all that loving hands could do was done for her. She was buried among a profusion of flowers, that she loved so well under the ritesof the Episcopal church, of which she had long been a member. She leaves to mourn her passing, two sons and one daughter, Edward of Harrisburg, Pa., Phillip, of Guilford and Miss Helen of Yon- kers, N. Y., and Mrs. Louise Delano, of Hyde Park, Mass., widow of her son, Richard, who died several year ago. All were present at the funeral. She also leaves several grandchildren.
