Mead, Mary (5 JUL 1844 - 25 MAR 1920)

Died, at her home in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.), Mrs. William Mead.

To her the struggle and burden bearing of earth are ended, and we confidently trust that like one who awakes from a trouble dream she has awakened to see life's endless morning break and knows herself at home with all the vast throng of loved ones, missed from earth, safe about her home instincts were strong her in this fevered world of disappointment. Her affection for friends and kindred was tender and abiding.

Mary Madigan was born at Winchester, Canada, on July 5, 1844. At the age of sixteen she moved to New York State with her parents, and on Jan. 2, 1865, was united in marriage to Wm. Mead at Watertown, N.Y. They moved to Clark County, Wis. in Sept. 1869, locating on a homestead a short distance north of Greenwood, Clark County. This was their home until 1914, when they sold the farm and moved to Withee and in 1919 came to Thorp.

Deceased leaves her aged husband and four children, Fred, whose address is unknown, Byron of Wenatchee, Wash., Hixon M. and Mrs. H. C. Tiedemann of Thorp. Her death occurred on Thursday, March 25, 1920. The funeral took place from the home on Saturday afternoon last, Rev. George H. Crow officiating, interment following in the Thorp Village Cemetery.
