Mrs. Van Fleet Dead
Feb 27, 1909 [handwritten]

Prominent Resident of Palmyra Has Passed Away

Mrs. Pliny O. Van Fleet, a prominent Palmyra lady and
a resident of that township for 27 years, died at her farm
home at 6:15 Saturday evening of anaemia against whose
inroads she had fought valiently for two years, assisted by
the best medical skill and hospital care. Her life had been
given always so unsparingly, the more so because of the
invalidism of her husband whose health became impaired
during the civil war and her vitality was at too low an ebb
to allow her to recover. She had been in a decline for two
years. In October 1907, she went to Ann Arbor where
her married daughter, Mrs. L.H. Pennington resides and
remained in the university hospital until spring. In June she
re-entered the hospital, returning home permanently in
October. To one wont to be so active her retirement from
active work was indeed hard to bear. Mrs. Van Fleet's
sphere of usefulness extended beyond her home to which
she was so devoted. She was a prominent worker in the
Presbyterian church, in the Lady Macabees, the Woman's
Relief Corps and the Grange so long as health permitted,
and was always welcome in the time of illness with her
ready hand and sympathetic touch.

Deceased was born in Swanton, O., Sept. 20, 1849, moving
to Monclova after her marriage to Mr. Van Fleet in March 1871
[handwritten correction Nov 17]. Twenty-seven years ago
Mr. Van Fleet purchased a farm in Palmyra and there they
have since resided. In her immediate family are the widower
who is himself very ill, three sons and two daughter; Maynard
L. Van Fleet of Riverside, Cal., who was here to see his
mother last summer; Mrs. L.N. Pennington of Ann Arbor;
William Van Fleet, in business in Palmyra; Ralph and Edna
at home. Also two grandchildren, Phyllis Pennington and
Dorothy Van Fleet. Of her father's family she is survived by
three sisters and one brother, Mrs. Miner T. Cole of Palmyra,
who recently broke a 40 day fast and who is so critically ill
that she has not been advised of her sister's death. Mrs. Theresa
Farner of Toledo, Mrs. Addie Wall of Swanton and Romaine
Taylor of Swanton.

The funeral services have been arranged for Tuesday at 1:30,
standard time, from the Palmyra Presbyterian church, Rev.
George Humphrey to officiate and burial will be at Palmyra.
A quartet from the Presbyterian choir composed of Mrs. Arthur
Baldwin, Miss Elizabeth Humphrey, George Whitmarsh and
Arthur Baldwin will sing and the bearers will be W. H. Moore,
H.H. Atwell, Chas. Baldwin, L.G. Smith, John Hartley and
George Everett.
