Mrs , W , A , Pettycrew
At Rest ,
Mrs. Adelia E. Pettycrew was
born in the state of New York
Sept. 6 , 1852. Two years later
her parents moved to Illinois and
in 1867 to Iowa. From there the
family moved to Cherry county ,
Nebr. , in 1885 where she has since
resided , the last eight years in Val
entine. She was married to David
E. Ajikeny and to this union was
born John C. Ankeny , now living
in Pa. She was again married to
W. E. Pettycrew , and to this union
were born Archie D. , Inez A. and
Floyd M. , all of whom survive her
as also her son in Pa , a sister jNIrs.
J. E. Pettycrew of this city and
a brother.
Mr. Pettycrew had taken the
train for Hot Springs Wednesday
night of last week in response to a
telegram from Dr. Ferguson that
she was very ill and while on the
train received another stating that
she had passed away. He brought
her home , starting from Hot
Springs Thursday night , reaching
here Friday morning and the f un-
; ral was held at the M. E. church ,
onducted by Eev. C. W. Ray as
sisted-by the S. & D. of P. , D. of
H. and Eebeckah lodges , Friday
afternoon at 3 o' clock. The church
was filled with people and a long
train of carriages followed to Mount
Hope cemetery where we laid her
away. Words cannot speak the
grief of that solemn hour when her
relatives and friends stood beside
her for the last time on earth.
Mrs. Pettycrew had enjoyed good
health until a few years ago when
she Became an invalid and though
she had gone back east to visit her
son last year in the hope of regain
ing her health and had for the past
two or three months been at the
Siloam Sanitarium at Hot Springs
under the care of Dr. Ferguson
where she thought she was improv
ing in health and was counting the
days until the end of the course of
treatment when she expected to
return home. Mr. Pettycrew had
written her that he would be there
to bring her home the following
Sunday.
Though it was generally thought
thatMrs. Pcttycrew's time on earth
was not long , her death was a shock
and a surprise to everyone just at
this time when she was thought to
be getting along so well.
A friend to the family at Hot
Spring writes of Mrs. Pettycrew ,
1 'She was the life of the place where
she was staying , so jolly , so full of
fun and so ready to do all that she
could socially that none of .them
supposed that she suffered very
much , yet she often told them she
was so homesick and longed to be
it Valentine again. " ( She wrote a
very cheerful letter to her daugh
ter Wednesday before she took
sick in the afternoon which was re
ceived Thursday morning after her
ileath. ) "After eating a hearty
: linner she was sitting on the front
steps at two o'clock waiting for
} he hack to go up town but sudden
ly became dizzy. They carried
ler to her room and worked over
ler faithfully until 9:30 : p. m. when
she died. I am sure that they did
ill they could to relieve her for she
seemed to be the favorite of all
/here / and all mourn her death. "
Indeed she was a favorite of all
, vho knew her , and no words could
speak more of truth than , "None
mew her but to love her. " Gen-
ile , loving , kind and always a lady
n life beautiful in death.
