Death of Mrs. Levi Peck
Essex Junction, March 5. -- Mrs. Levi Peck, age 80 years old, died at her home on Lamoille street Sunday
morning at 2:30 o'clock following a short illness with pneumonia. About three years ago she suffered a
shock, which paralyzed her throat and left her absolutely helpless. At about the same time the sudden
death by accident of her son, Guy A. Peck, affected her so deeply that she never gained, but seemed instead
to grow more and more feeble until pneumonia developed last week. Her daughter, Mrs. Bates and a son,
William Randall together with Mrs. Fannie Clark, who has tenderly cared for her for nearly a year, were with
her during her last days.
Mrs. Peck was born in Vermont, but lived most of her life in Brushton, NY., until seven years ago when she came
with her husband to this place to reside.
Beside her husband, Mrs. Peck is survived by three daughters Mrs. B. L. Orcut, of Dickinson, NY, Mrs. L. A. Bates
of Shelburne, Mrs. G. H. Nelson of Pittsfield, Mass., and a son by a former marriage, William G. Randall of
Brushton, NY., and by eleven grandchildren.
Mrs. Peck was a member of the Christian church of Brushton, NY. She was possesses of a genial disposition
and was a tender wife and mother, a kind neighbor and true Christian. She bore with great fortitude and
patience the suffering and loneliness entailed by her condition.
The funeral was held from her late home this afternoon at 2:30. The Rev. William Millar officiated, assisted by
the Rev. C. S. Quimby. Burial was in the village cemetery.
