Mrs. Amarnia Aldrich
Ninety-two Year Old Milton Resident Passes Away
Aged Widow Dies From Effects of Fall Suffered Several Weeks Ago. Funeral Arrangements Incomplete. On Tuesday at 5 A. M. the spirit of Mrs. Amarnia Aldrich was called to its reward. She had reached the age of ninety-two years last December. Her death was the result of a fall at her home south of town, in November. Since then she has been confined to her bed and steadily declining. Her maiden name was Bowman and she was the widow of the late William Aldrich. She is survived by four daughters and four sons, Mrs. Charles Teach of Columbus, Ohio, Mrs. Frank Van Ormer of California, Mrs. Grace Lees of West Milton, and Mrs. Celia Shellabarger who has lived with and cared for her mother several years, H. D. Aldrich of West Milton, C. B. Aldrich of Ludlow Falls, Carlyle and Arthur at home. She was a most remarkable woman both mentally and physically taking active part in the Eastern Star Lodge and Methodist Church to both of which she belonged. In her early life she was a school teacher. She was preceded in death by one son and one daughter. The son, Bert, died in 1905 in the state of Washington from the effects of a fall sustained while engaged in carpenter work. The daughter died about forty years ago at the age of only a few months. Funeral services for Mrs. Aldrich have not been definitely made but will be either Friday of Saturday, as we will announce in Thursday's issue of this paper.
