NORRIS, MRS. PHOEBE - After an illness extending over 22 weeks, death relieved the sufferings of Mrs. Phoebe Norris Monday afternoon. She had endured all suffering with great fortitude. She was of a quiet, retiring disposition but her friendship was true, and she never wavered in her duties to her home, her children and friends. Reared in the Dunkard church, to which she belonged all her life, Mrs. Norris religious convictions were not at all affected by modernism and her faith in the Supreme Master was beautiful to behold. Mrs. Norris was born on November 11, 1828, in Dayton, her birthplace being the old log cabin, which is now preserved as the historic dwelling of the Gem City. She was the daughter of Daniel Miller, one of the pioneer residents of Dayton. After her marriage to Mr. Norris the family finally removed to Troy, where Mrs. Norris has since resided. The children surviving are: Mrs. Emma Best, of Winchester, Ind., Mrs. Lida Ehle, of Indianapolis, Mrs. Ottie Stumpe, of Danville, Ill., Mrs. Jennie N. Stephens, of Troy, Charles and J. A. Norris of Los Angeles, Cal., and Will Norris, of Troy. The funeral services were held at the home at 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon and were conducted by Rev. Frantz, pastor of the Pleasant Hill Dunkard church, of which Mrs. Norris was a member. Burial was made in Riverside cemetery.
