Obituary: Mrs. Deborah Farmer

Lakeside Press
04/21/1883

  Death removed another of our old residents, Wednesday evening - Mrs. Deborah Farmer, at the age of 73 years.

  Deceased was born in Herkimer county of this State.  In 1831, with her husband, the late Forris Farmer, she came to this place, and Mr. Farmer at once engaged in the mercantile business, in which he was very successful up to the time of his death, about 11 years ago.

  Mrs. Farmer was an active, earnest woman, of quick sympathy and generous impulses, and had friends, and many of them, wherever she was known.  She was the mother of a large family of ten children, two of whom died in infancy, and a son, Homer, who fell in the late war.  Seven daughters survive her: Mrs. O.W. Gibson, of Austin, Minn.; Mrs. Wm. Coggshall, Mrs. A.E. Coggshell, of Omaha, Neb.; Misses Kate and Fannie Farmer, Mrs. F.J. Allen, Mrs. J.E. Earll, of this place.

  Funeral services are to be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock.
