Death of Mrs. Adeline M. Bolton
Mrs. Adeline Sharpsteen Bolton, widow of the late J. N. Bolton, died at her home on Watrous street in this village, about 9:30 o'clock last night, aged 69 years.Mrs. Bolton has been in failing health for more than eight years, and has been confined to her bed totally helpless, since April, 1900.
On November 10th, 1893, she fell down stairs and sustained injuries that seriously affected her health.While no bones were broken, the shock was severe and she failed steadily from that time.During the past three years or more she has been a great sufferer and has required almost constant care and attention, which her children have faithfully bestowed with tenderest devotion.Nothing that could be done by them was left undone that would tend to her comfort.Although an intense sufferer, she bore her illness with patience until exhaustion of body and mind caused pain beyond endurance.
Last Sunday she was taken with vomiting spells, which continued at more frequent intervals until death mercifully relieved her suffering and her spirit was taken to the Father.
Mrs. Bolton was a daughter of Samuel and Margaret Sharpsteen, pioneer settlers of the town of Leicester, where she was born on June 20th, 1832.She was one of a family of 10 children, eight sons and two daughters, only two of whom are now living, viz: Henry and Seward Sharpsteen of Marshall, Mich.
Mrs.. Bolton was a woman of many lovable qualities and was held in high regard by all who knew her, being one who possessed and exemplified in her daily life the characteristics of a true Christian.She was the mother of whom are living, viz: Platt S. Cora A. and Oscar N. Bolton, all of Perry.
Funeral services will be held at the late residence of the deceased, on Watrous street, Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, Rev. C. Palmatier officiating.
