Comstock, Ann (30 SEP 1848 - 27 OCT 1914)

Mrs. Ann Comstock died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. George Chambers, in this village (Humbird, Clark County, Wis.), at about eight o'clock Tuesday evening, Oct. 27, 1914, after a long illness, aged 66 years and 27 days.

Mrs. Comstock, whose maiden name was Ann Westley, was born in the state of Pennsylvania Sept. 30, 1848. In an early day her parents journeyed westward and became pioneer settlers in Minnesota. She grew to young womanhood there, and on Feb. 5, 1865, was united in marriage with Mr. Walter Adams, at Winnebago City, Minn. To this union four children were born, two of whom have preceded their mother in death. Mr. Adams died in 1870. Two years later she became the wife of Mr. Charles Comstock. To them three children were given, one of whom as passed to the Great Beyond. In the year 1880, the family moved to this vicinity, and since that time this had been their home. About fifteen years ago Mrs. Comstock was called upon to mourn the loss of her husband, and since his death she has made her home, for the greater part of the time, with one of her daughters.

There are, mourning the death of an affectionate mother and sister, four daughters, Mrs. George Chambers of this village, Mrs. Steve Smith of the town of Cleveland, Mrs. W. H. Miller of Stanley, and Mrs. Charles Westley of Canada; two brothers, Wm. of Moose Lake, Minn., and Charles of Canada; and one sister, Mrs. Charles Vasterling of Moose Lake, Minn.; and nineteen grandchildren.

Thursday afternoon the funeral services were held at the M. E. Church, of which she was a faithful consistent member, Rev. F. M. Prucia officiating. The floral tributes that covered her casket were many and beautiful. A large congregation gathered at the church to pay the final respects to a friend's memory, and the remains were laid at rest beside the loved ones in the Mentor Cemetery. The Royal Neighbor Camp, of which she was a member, attended in a body, and gave the impressive burial service of the order at the cemetery.
