Frances Farmer-Herricks was born in Germany, June 11, 1830, and died at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, April 24, 1907. She had been confined to her bed since the 27th of February as the result of an attack of lagrippe. She was moved to the hospital, hoping to being her relief and health. She was married in Germany and came to this country with her husband in 1861, locating in Williamsport, where she resided for 46 years. Her home was her dominion until broken by the death of her husband, January 14, 1905, after which most of her time was spent with her children. She was known for her hospitality, and no one ever came to her needing help and went away empty handed; she was ever ready to help those in sickness and distress. She was a devoted mother and never was she in all her suffering forgetful of the comfort of her family and the many friends who showed thheir sincere sympathy for her in her suffering. She will be remembered by many a friend for her acts of kindness and whose troubles she sought to relieve. She was a lover of little children and her loneliness was for a time forgotten when surrounded by her grandchildren to whom she was devotedly attached.

Her standard of true womanhood was the highest and she lived up to that standard throughout her earthly existence. She was a true wife and mother. Her task on earth is completed and after its toil and strife she sleeps in peace.

The surviving children are John Herricks, living north of town; Mrs. Frances Parker, of Oxford, Ind., and Mrs. Mary Loges, of LaFayette, Ind.

The funeral services were held Saturday morning, April 27, 1907, at the Catholic church in Attica, Rev. Father Von Schwedler officiating. The remains were laid to rest in Hillside cemetary beside her husband.

[Mother how we miss you, One constant image still shall show, Our lives ar true to these.]
