Sheldon, Mary H. (25 OCT 1848 - 10 NOV 1910)

Died, at her home in the town of Aurora, Taylor Co., Wis., on Thursday, Nov. 10, 1910, of cancer, Mrs. Charles H. Sheldon, aged 62 years and 15 days.

Mary Helen Fletcher was born in St. Lawrence Co., N.Y., on Oct. 25, 1848, daughter of David and Mary Fletcher, both deceased. In 1865 the family came west and settled in Waupaca Co., Wis., where on Oct. 20, 1866, she was united in marriage with Charles H. Sheldon. After residing at Royalton until 1881 she came with her husband to Thorp, Clark County, Wis., this being her home until about two years ago. Her always cheerful, beautiful, helpful life; her devotion as wife and mother; her kindness to everybody, will long linger as a fragrant memory in the home which her presence brightened and which death has now darkened. Her more public life and her work in the two societies, W. R. C. and Rebekah Lodges, was well known to all and on that one need not dwell. Though she is gone her record has been made, and will remain as a lasting treasure.

She leaves to mourn, her devoted husband, C. H. Sheldon, and daughter, Mrs. Charles Adams, and four grandchildren, three sisters, Mrs. Henry Witham of Appleton, Mrs. B. P. Hopkins of New London, Mrs. C. J. Mix of Royalton, and two brothers, Ira and Charles Fletcher of Royalton.

The remains were brought to her former home here on Thursday and the last services were held on Sunday at 2 o'clock p.m., Rev. J. B. Bachman officiating, interment taking place in the Thorp Village Cemetery.
