Hannah E. Fletcher
Hannah Fletcher, the widow of Chester Fletcher and the daughter of Jacob and Katie Falknor was born south of Covington on the farm adjoining that on which she died, spending her long life in the two homes. Just twelve days after her eighty-sixth birthday she departed from the home where she had lived for fifty six years, to go to her immortal home. She was born Oct. 5, 1848. At the age of eighteen she was married to Chester Fletcher and shared life together fifty eight years, Mr. Fletcher having died in 1924. There were born to them six children, three of whom preceded their mother in death. The three surviving children are James of Covington, Ora also of Covington, and Mrs. Kate Bashore of Piqua. She leaves also thirteen grand-children, thirty-one great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. She is the last of the immediate family having had a half-brother and a sister who both have gone on before her. Grandma Fletcher was a woman of cheerful disposition and Christian character. She was a lifelong member of the Covington Christian Church having united with the church in her early girlhood. She kept up her interest and attendance at church until just a few months before her death when her health became such that she could not get to services. She suffered a stroke of paralysis on the 28th of September and since that time two other strokes and death came to retrieve her Oct. 17, 1934 just about ten years after the death of her husband. The sincere thanks of the family is extended to neighbors and friends for their help and tokens of sympathy, and to the Superior Underwear Factory for the flowers sent, and also their appreciation of the tender care given by Bertha Boyer and Mrs. Emma Boyer.
